Reading For Understanding
SYSTEMATIC BIBLE STUDY is designed to increase our knowledge and understanding of God's Word by
a detailed study of a particular book, chapter, theme, character, topic or word.
• Study of a BOOK to find out when it was written, to whom and for what purpose.
• Study of a THEME eg The Story of Redemption from GENESIS TO REVELATION
• Study of a CHARACTER eg David: A Man After God's Heart or Abraham: The Father of Faith
• Study of a TOPIC or WORD such as faith, grace, forgiveness, repentance, salvation, etc.
2 TIMOTHY 3:16 All scripture is divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit and is useful for instruction, for conviction of sin, for setting things straight, and for training in living a life that pleases God.
There are several methods of systematic Bible study.
A practical guide to these is Rick Warren's PERSONAL BIBLE STUDY METHODS.
