A truly revolutionary book! The contents of this book completely changed how I read and studied the Bible. If you are looking for a book that “puts the cookies on the lower shelf” and can equip you in your bible study--you’ve found it!!! This is THE best book on Bible study and is destined to remain a classic.
-Dr. Dennis Rainey, President, FamilyLife
Howard Hendricks taught me how to study the Bible in a way that revolutionized my life and my teaching. Living by the Book is the very material "Prof" Hendricks taught me and is now available to everyone. To this day, I open the Bible daily using the principles found in this book. I highly recommend it to you.
-Chip Ingram, President, Walk Thru the Bible
Five decades of Howard Hendrick’s students all give the same testimony: his course in Bible Study Methods marked them for life. Because Living By the Book is a distillation of that course, all of us would also offer this counsel: Don’t miss this book if you too want to see your study of God’s Word come alive.
-Duane Litfin, President, Wheaton College
My spiritual inspiration and mentor has been Dr. Howard Hendricks. I am one of thousands who have been impacted by his ministry. Having known Howie and through Howie, Bill, for over 30 years, I know to a small degree the wisdom contained in these men’s minds and hearts. Living By the Book is the way that Howie and Bill have lived their lives and, as such, this is a book that is readable and useable by everyone. It is with great joy and enthusiasm that I endorse and recommend Living By the Book.
-Ron Blue, President, CFPN
Teach a man to study the Bible and you fill his life. Teach a man to train others and you fill others lives. A generation is indebt to 'The Prof' for teaching us how to train fishermen. Thanks for helping us know and love the Savior through His word.

In any case, a friend recommended this book to me, and it forever changed my Bible study methods and habits. Its not deep, but simple and practical. The first part of the book might be overly basic for someone who has gone to Bible college somewhere, but still contains good reminders. The author is every engaging and makes you want to put the book down and dig into the Bible.
This book helped me specifically in the following areas:
1) Becoming a better observer of the text, and therefore making my time in the Word, even if relatively shorter on any given day, far better in quality
2) Getting me all over the Bible, instead of solely reading and studying in my favorite books only, or on my pet theological interests
3) Helping me create a plan of daily study that would cover the entire Bible over a period of time; not just reading, but studying it
4) Making Bible study interesting and enjoyable; forever changing it from something "I should do" to something "I get to do" and "look forward to"
Highly recommend this book!
Strong points: 1) Organization--It has many chapters, but they are short and focus on 1 subject at a time. 2) Teaching approach--The authors use clear examples and simple practical exercises to teach the reader who wishes to learn & understand. 3) Pacing--You may choose to work on the reading & "homework" steadily or set it aside & come back to it. You should have little trouble "getting back into the flow" of the book. 4) Usability--This book is useful for personal Bible study and for those who wish to teach others about the Scriptures. It is also useful for those who wish to teach others how to teach these things.
