"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Moody wrote about prayer, the 10 commandments and other Bible topics. His sermons were collected and published. And he wrote a book entitled “How to Study the Bible,” recently updated and republished by Aneko Press.
It says some for the man’s simple and basic approach to Bible study that what he recommends is as current today as it was more than a century ago.
He begins the book with several chapters that essentially answer the question “Why?” – why study the Bible at all? His answers are straightforward: there is no true life without the Bible; the word of Word – all of it – is true; the Old Testament is important and shouldn’t be neglected in favor of only the New Testament; God’s word is accurate and endures.
Moody suggests a wide array of ways to study the Bible, starting with the “scopes” approach – the telescope approach for understanding big themes and the big picture and the microscope approach for studying words, characters, places, and events. He discusses ways to remember what’s read and studied; studying types, characters, and names; and doing individual word studies. And he also recommends never buying a Bible you’re not willing to mark up and make notes in, and even had suggestions for underlining and marking.
And then he explains how all of this study is useless unless it’s applied and used to further God’s kingdom. He completes his book with a summary of suggestions, 15 short statements that cover the book’s theme and reach. (He even includes his recommendations for how many services a church should conduct each Sunday – two on Sunday morning (one for worship and one for teaching) and one on Sunday night for preaching the gospel.
“The more you love the Scriptures,” Moody writes, “the stronger your faith will be. There is little backsliding when people love the Scriptures.”
“How to Study the Bible” is a book chock full of good advice and helpful suggestions.
Written By: Dwight L. Moody
Genre: Bible Study Helps/Non-fiction
Recommended Ages: Any
This book was amazing! I highlighted probably about 1/4 of it. It was interesting to note how similar the times were back in the late 1800s and now. So much of what D.L Moody said completely describes today.
Everything was written super clearly and even though it was written over 100 years ago, it was easy to understand.
As I mentioned earlier, I highlighted about one-fourth of the book. Which means it was very usable. I am looking forward to putting it into practice in my own Bible reading.
Super readable. The formatting for the Kindle version was done very well.
Overall writing quality:
Not a single typo that I found. And I loved the conversational tone of the book. D.L. Moody was not only a good evangelist and preacher in the day, but an excellent writer.
It did take me two weeks to read the book, but only because I was too busy to read it all the way through in one sitting.
I very, very highly recommend this book. If I could give it 20 stars, I would.
How to Study the Bible is one of the Christian classics. Aneko Press has taken on the task of updated the original work which was entitled Pleasure and Profit in Bible Study. The updated version is easy to read and maintains the integrity of the original book.
The reader of this book will find evidence of Dwight L. Moody's love for God's Word. Throughout, Mr. Moody emphasizes the importance of understanding, studying, and treasuring God's magnificent gift to us, the Holy Bible.
Some of the chapters included in the book are as follows:
No true life without the Bible
The Word of God Is True
Don't Neglect the Old Testament
Take Time and Study
Look and Learn; Read and Remember
Take God at His Word
The author gives so much wisdom in this little book. I loved reading his perspectives and would like to share some of his wisdom and practical advice here through his direct quotes:
1. "The more you love Scriptures, the stronger your faith will be."
2. "If we feed on the Word of God, it will be easy to speak to others about the Word of God; and not only that, but we will also be growing in grace the entire time, and others will notice the change in our walk and conversation."
3. "There is no book that will draw people in like the Bible."
4. "We must study the Bible thoroughly and hunt through it, as it were, for some great truth."
5. "The quicker you learn to feed yourself, the better."
6. "The best law for Bible study is the law of perseverance."
7. "Read the Bible itself; do not spend all your time on commentaries and helps."
8. "Every child of God ought to be like a soldier and always hold himself in readiness."
9. "Get ful lof Scripture, and then you can't help but say it."
10. Remember, it is the Holy Spirit and not you who does the converting and who gives new life."
How to Study the Bible is an excellent reference filled with powerful information. This book would be a wonderful addition to the library of old and new Christians alike. After reading How to Study the Bible, a reader would be well equipped to dig into God's Word and understand it better.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It gave me new insight on better ways to study. I would like to thank Aneko Press for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not encouraged to give a positive review, but it is my pleasure to do so.
