This guide has some real good points and some suggestions that are simply over the top.
The book is an update of a previous book that (I think) was written by one of the three authors. This one is well rounded with what seems to be three approaches.
As for actual curriculum, there are four parts to the book. In the first part, the author(s) suggest a system that is detailed and in a lot of steps. There are way too many steps and for me (I'm probably not alone) and following them are plain monotonous. Within the presentation, there are some real good points. I recommend skimming through the first part and follow the steps in a very abbreviated way. (1) Read the Bible text. (2) Identify the writer, reason for writing and the originally intended reader. (3) Identify the theme. (4) Apply it personally.
The rest of the book is filled with very good "pointers" for personal study. Skip chapter 10 on prophecy. The authors' views on the book of Revelation are outright assumptions based upon nothing -- or evangelical consensus. When studying Revelation, have a study partner -- even if he/she is a commentary book. I recommend Marcus Maxwell's commentary on Revelation in "Daily Bible Commentary" series, Hendrickson Publishers.
