Publisher's Description

There are Bibles literally all over the place. You can find them in the drawer of the end table in your hotel room, under the pews at your local church, on the shelves of your local library or bookstore, posted in full and in multiple versions on any number of websites. You can find them in every corner of the earth, even (if you look carefully enough) in places where they're forbidden. So there's no trouble getting hold of a Bible. But once you have one in your hands . . . now what? The Scriptures tell us that the Word of God is living and active; what happens to us as we interact with it? In The Bible Study Handbook Lindsay Olesberg lays a foundation for why we read the Bible, what attitudes and expectations are most helpful as we enter into serious Bible study, and what methods and practices yield the most fruit. From foundational insights to best practices and hands-on exercises, you will find everything you need in this book to cultivate your curiosity, hone your attention and mine the applicabilities of whatever passage you find yourself in. And you'll be reminded of the insights, encouragement and even transformation waiting for people who commit to studying the Scriptures well together. A comprehensive guide for Bible students of every level of experience and spiritual maturity.

Editorial Reviews

"Hand this out with the Bible after alter calls (if you have them). Olesberg will rescue you with fresh perspective, imaginative engagement with God and his Word, and creative methodology for inductive Bible study."

-- Worship Leader Magazine, May 2013

"I don't know what the solution is to getting kids to read Scripture daily and deeply, but this book will challenge you as it challenged me to be an example to them in word and deed."

-- Paul Turner, YouthWorker Journal, March/April 2013

"From foundational insights to best practices and hands-on exercises, this resource provides everything you need to cultivate your curiosity, hone your attention, and mine the applicabilities of any passage. And you'll be reminded of the insights, encouragement, and transformation waiting for people who commit to studying the Scriptures."

-- Journal of Christian Nursing, July-September 2013

"Olesberg includes often-humorous anecdotes to personalize the text and illustrate her points, along with charts, maps and graphs to explain her teaching. Hands-on exercises help make Scripture more meaningful."

-- Cindy Grabill, Church Libraries, Spring 2014

"Olesberg's anecdotes and writing style make this a readable book. . . . And her tips for adapting the method to a group setting are invaluable. It's worth the money."

-- Church Libraries, Winter 2012-13
