Publisher's Description

The Word of God is alive--dynamic and powerful. Studying God's Word can transform your life. It knits you together with others. Revitalizes your relationships. Allows you to meet Christ for the first time as well as again and again. Studying the Bible can also be dry, dull--and seem to have little connection with your daily life. You've probably experienced group Bible study meetings in which the discussion is merely a chain of platitudes and people never say what they think or address the real questions they have about faith and life. Further, some approaches to Bible study require stacks of reference books, cross-referencing and three versions of the Bible. Other approaches ask you to fill in blanks like an elementary school child. What you need is a Bible study method that will bring Scripture to life in your personal study and in your group studies. In this book Bob Grahmann, a national and international Bible study teacher, unfolds a long-appreciated method of inductive Bible study which has been updated to meet the needs of today's generation. With both biblical expertise and cultural awareness he lays out the method clearly. With exercises to put the method into practice, this is a book that will benefit you individually as well as in your next group Bible study. It is time for your Bible study methods to be transformed. And it is time for you to allow the Bible to transform you. That’s what Transforming Bible Study is all about!

    Decades back, the Lord led me to a campus group called Inter-Varsity where I met many people, but more importantly learned more about the Word. One of the many facets of the group was learning to have quiet times alone with a Bible, pen, notebook and an open listening heart. This is a way to glean more from the Word than any other way I have come across thus far with only one exception. The manuscript study was new to me then and still lights a fire in my heart years later. In the manuscript study, you read the word without anything else on the page, no paragraphs, titles, numbers, commentary just the Word!

    Kay Arthurs Precepts is a more involved, in-depth and expanded view, in my opinion, of the manuscript study. The benefit of manuscript study is the in-depth treasures a person gleans that are really beyond description as it blows away all sorts of preconceived teachings or assumptions. A word of warning though the in-depth manuscript study will ruin you for the packaged study. I use other study guides once in a while, but 95% of the time it is in correlation with a manuscript study.

    The whole purpose of manuscript study is to spend time in the Word with the Lord and hearing Him speak to you personally. Reading from the Bible daily is wonderful, studying in a group 1-to-1 is beneficial no doubt about it as I can personally testify. However, if you want to grow in the Lord, make time to do so. I promise you will never regret making the decision! The book gives helpful suggestions as to the how of the study and why with the author sharing his testimony of being transformed via Bible study and trust me the Word transforms. I read the book looking to ignite the fire brighter in my own time with the Lord and in my life. My sons have learned this approach as well because it is unequaled to any other way of drawing near to the Lord and having Him draw near to them and myself.
