Publishers 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 whatTransforming Bible Study is all about "

awesome guide on how to revolutionize your Bible study habits Jul 27, 2005
I had the habit of doing a Bible study during quiet time every morning. I'd go over a passage, and let my hand and heart go free, writing down paragraph after paragraph on how I interpreted the passage and what I was getting out of it. I'd also go to small group Bible studies regularly. But something was always missing, and that was how I linked stuff to my life, and I realized I needed guidance as to how to get more out of Bible studies.
Then my roommate, the student director of the on-campus InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter, referred me to this book. I got myself a copy and read through, and it opened new doors to me. Back then, I'd read the passages as if they were stories. Because of this book, I'd not only read the passages, but I'd also ask all sorts of questions, look for connections within the text, look for recurring phrases, and everything else that I've never thought about doing in the past. Altogether, these new questions that pop up in my mind create a new dimension in the passages (especially Old Testament passages) and enable me to see each passage as not only a piece of history, but a story with deeper morals that I can build upon in my daily life.
It is because of this book that my Bible study methods have changed for the better, and I recommend this book to anybody who has been having trouble extracting messages out of the Bible and wishes to revolutionize their Bible study habits.
