Step-by-step to deeper study Mar 12, 2007
I got this book as a textbook for a class at school, however, it has been most beneficial. This is great for anyone wanting to learn how to do a deeper study beyond just a daily bible reading. Easy to read, easy to follow, easy to use!

This book is written in laymen termonology than anyone can understand. His points are straightforward, easy to comprehend, and practical in application. I really enjoy the exercises provided at the end of each chapter. It helps to learn and then to immediately apply that knowledge. I'm really enjoying this book and would recommend it for anyone wishing to further their knowlege of the Bible.

Dr Hendricks has taken Bible study back to it's real basics. Is it trustworthy, what does it say, what does it mean, and how do I apply it- today. I have seen much of this material in other books, but this book packages it in a better format and he makes it interesting. This should be where we start new believers, and this is where "old" believers can learn a thing or two. I have painters gloves that I use with the words found in this book to help me remember what I need to look for. I want to be a "HEARER" and a "DOER" of the Word. This book will help anyone with "The Book". It is meant to be used with prayer and the presences of the Holy Spirit.
Beware! This is NOT workbook! Feb 24, 2007
The 'inside the book' is wrongly linked as 'workbook', as of date of 2/23, 2007. It is the 'main book', not the workbook. It's 2007 updated version of main book over 1991 version, and it has its own workbook ISBN : 0-8024-9538-9 .
I hope everybody will not be confused. I found it's really nice book. I returned 1991 old version and ordered its workbook today. Some reviewer said it's workbook, but it means it's the workbook for the Bible, but its format is 'main text' which will be followed by its own workbook. Don't be confused ever. ^^
Encouragement for Bible Study Jan 24, 2007
Howard Hendrix's book is a great tool for individuals wanting to study the Bible, but have been reluctant to put forth effort to do so. This book is one that would be good for the new believer in Jesus Christ wanting to learn how to understand God's Word and how it applies to their life; as well as the person who has been in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ for years. This book would also be great to go through in a small group or a one-on-one mentoring environment to teach others how to study the Bible in a practical way. I highly recommend "Living By The Book."
