No other resource provides the large variety of Bible study methods, how-to illustrations, and study aids that are available in this one book. The hundreds of hours spent researching and proving these forty methods will enable you to find one that will fit your goals and begin enhancing your understanding of God's Word, today. Whether you are a teenager or a mature Bible student, a Sunday school teacher or a pastor, a stay at home mom or a busy executive: you will find in the pages of this book, a number of Bible study methods that will add excitement and enjoyment to your study of God's Word. In addition, you will have resources at your fingertips that will help you to train and encourage others who want to learn how to dig into the Scriptures as well.
Why do we need a method to study the Bible; isn't it enough to have a desire to know God's Word as we simply read the Scriptures? While a desire to know God's Word is an absolutely, necessary motivation, unless we have a plan to act upon, we are bound to fail. A Bible study method is a plan. So, each of the forty methods in this book provides a different plan that will help you to think through the passages you are reading. They will allow you to slow down and patiently and prayerfully reflect upon the Scripture you are studying. Each method provides questions to answer, charts to fill out, and a variety of other ideas on how to draw the most from your time in God's Word.
Each chapter in this book contains step-by-step instructions for a study method that you can immediately begin applying to your Bible reading. I would encourage you to try each of the forty methods at least once. They will teach you new ways to approach both difficult and familiar passages and help you to absorb more of their meaning.

The Lord sustained His people for forty years in the wilderness by miraculously providing fresh manna each morning. Regardless of how much manna they collected, it always was enough nourishment for that day. Similarly, the Lord wants to sustain us, every day, with fresh ďspiritual mannaĒ from His Word. The Daily Bread Bible study is one of the simplest ways to begin discovering the specific truths that the Holy Spirit has for us each day. This method involves five steps that will lead you to meditate on a single biblical passage, discover its full meaning, and begin applying biblical truths in life.

"Andy has put together an amazing resource. We will definitely be using this for not only our School of Ministry students, but in our training for all of our leaders, for our one-on-one discipleship and small group Bible studies."
Pastor Lloyd Pulley
"Wow has Andy shattered the cold stone ceiling of Bible study! No longer should the Bible remain mysterious and reserved for the theologians. Many Bible study methods morph into boring laborious monotony, but not this one. Learn to Study the Bible makes knowing the Bible adventurous, deeply personal, thought provoking and just plain fun. No matter where you open this book you will discover great new methods of digging into the treasure of Godís Word. Whether the chapter on Daily Devotions, the Rethink & Restate Method or Verse by Verse Charting, the next journey is more fun than the last one. Anyone wishing to cultivate the same passion for Godís Word that has transformed the author will love this book."
Pastor Dave Rolph
"Nothing could be worse than turning the living Bible into a boring and confusing tome. Yet, that is exactly what happens to so many, simply because they haven't been given the essential tools necessary to unlock the rich character of Godís Word for themselves.
As "people of the Book," we Christians have received a privilege that truly is above all else. And yet, so often I hear believers expressing frustration in their attempts to study and understand Godís Word. Either they tell me they don't know how to get startedÖ or they get bogged down in boring and monotonous study routinesÖ or they donít know the basics of being able to observe, interpret, and apply biblical principles to their own lives.
That is why I am so excited about this book being published. Andy Deane has provided the church with an exceptional answer to this problem by giving the reader all the tools needed to grow in their understanding and love for God and His Word. In this one resource, Andy has done an amazingly thorough job of compiling a wide variety of Bible study methods and describing them in a way that is useful, concise, and practical. Frankly, I am surprised that no one has done this before.
I believe Learn to Study the Bible, is a valuable resource for every Christian who wants to dig deeper into Godís Word, and also for anyone who has the opportunity to teach the Bible to others. It is a book that can be opened randomly to almost any page and on it you will find a new and exciting way to encounter the Word of God. I look forward to hearing how God uses it in the lives of His children. "
