Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sufficient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner lives begin to suffer the consequences. We become shallow and selfish, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition.
In Searching the Scriptures, respected Bible teacher Chuck Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into Scripture and uncover its profound truths for our lives. He outlines the principles of Bible study that will help you understand Gods Word, apply it, and communicate it clearly to those around you. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide, for this life and the next. Chuck explains how we can fix our own spiritual meals, then invites us to feast on nourishing truths we can discover in Gods Word.

Charles R. Swindoll is a respected teacher andSearching the Scriptures gives us another reason to listen to someone like Him. This book, according to Swindoll is the result of his love and interest in the Scriptures and the way he's been developing an understanding of the truths inside them.
The first chapters start with a practical introduction about the Bible, its books, and some comments about why is important to have a clear picture of the Bible in order to share and present a defense of the Word of God.
Using words and concepts from the food and cooking world, Swindoll takes us though recipes and a walk through the kitchen to put into practice what we've learned in each chapter. There are exercises at the end of each lesson to give us the opportunity to read, meditate and apply our new understanding on different passages.
There's a study method, or recipe, given by the author and that can be useful for everyone during our study time:
Searching the Scripturescan give a new or better understanding to those who want to dig deeper into God's Word. Swindoll's life is not only an example, but an evidence that his writings really do work.

This book will help you dig, to think, and to pray better so that your walk with the LORD will be greater, deeper, and life changing.
Chuck writes from a life of walking with God and he does it in a way where you think he's been living your life. Chuck is real and he teaches his readers from his own life of trials and errors, successes, and failures, and shows us that he's just as human as the rest of us.
This latest book is not a hurry up and read book. It's a book that has you stop along the way and read, pray and meditate on the Scripture text and really soak in what you've read.
Fantastic book to own and have to refer to often.
Valerie5 Stars Out Of 5Searching The ScripturesSeptember 5, 2016ValerieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One of my greatest concerns as a Christian blogger is to accurately communicate the truth of God's word through my writing.
I want to correctly handle the word of truth.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
Sometimes, Im afraid Ill unintentionally misinterpret a verse by reading it out of context and understanding it wrong.
I was excited to read Chuck Swindolls Searching the Scriptures: Find The Nourishment Your Soul Needs, because I wanted to learn his methods of studying and teaching the Bible for over 50 years.
The book focused on helping the reader learn how to search the scriptures in order to gain sufficient spiritual nourishment.
Each section and chapter of the book centers around the metaphor of meal preparation. You are the chef and youre going to learn how to prepare a spiritual feast.
When it comes to cooking, its not enough to read about it or watch someone else do it; you have to actually get in the kitchen, roll up your sleeves, and give it your best effort! The same is true when it comes to studying the Bible.
The book is divided into three main sections:
Stage One: Finding the Food
Surveying the Shelves: Understanding the Basic Story of the Bible
Considering True Nourishment: Discovering the Transforming Nature of the Bible
Stage Two: Preparing the Meal
Choosing the Recipe: Pursuing the Treasures of Scripture
Reading the Ingredients: Observing the Text
Understanding the Nutrients: Interpreting the Text
Comparing the Flavors: Correlating the Text
Adding the Spices: Applying the Text
Stage Three: Serving the Feast
8. Setting the Table: Preparing to Dig into Gods Word
9. Tasting a Sample: Learning Where We Fit in the Story
10. Feeding the Hungry: Presenting the Truth
tweet We must search the Scriptures deliberately, consistently, and intensely.
Swindoll begins the book by giving a helpful overview of the Bible and its history.
Then he teaches through application called, Your Turn in the Kitchen how to observe, interpret, correlate and apply the text.
Youll learn about:
To inspect or take not of Scripture, to look carefully, with attention to detail
Coming to an understanding of what the Bible means.
Comparing one Scripture with other Scriptures, precept upon precept and line upon line, to amplify our understanding of what the Bible is teaching.
Allowing the truths of Gods Word to grip us in areas that need attention and to call us to action.
I loved the application section because it felt like Swindoll was personally passing along his wisdom and experience.
He outlines the principles of Bible Study in a way that will help you understand, apply and communicate Gods word effectively.
If youre looking to understand the Bible on a deep and meaningful level, then this book would be a great resource.
The Bible doesnt yield its treasures to the lazy soul. WE cant rush through each day and assume that spiritual nourishment will happen automatically.
I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
