Bible Study Basics builds on the premise that for Seventh-day Adventists, called “people of the book,” discipleship cannot be understood except in terms of a process fed by Bible study. In nurturing disciples, one of the things we often fail to do is teach them how to study the Bible; we tell our growing members they should study, but we rarely take the time to provide the sort of training that makes that imperative possible. The lessons in this book will help church members learn more about the process of Bible study and how it leads to a discipleship relationship with Jesus.
Bible Study Basics has been written to address six “big ideas,” representing the key elements in the Bible study process: making sure we keep Jesus at the center; learning how to dig deeply into the Bible; clinging to “big picture” perspectives, rather than becoming lost in minutia; looking for God’s personal message to the reader; studying with the community, as well as alone; and then keeping in mind that all truth is revealed by God, in His miraculous teaching capability, where even the least sophisticated reader is equipped to see His message.
