A month-or-so ago I came across a book at a second hand bookshop called studying God’s Word edited by John B Job.
It was published by IVP over 45 years ago1 and so the style is a little dated. Despite that, the content is helpful. It covers different ways or methods of, not surprisingly, studying God’s Word. Some of these methods include analysing a book of the Bible; analysing a passage or chapter; character and background studies; word studies and theme studies.
This post simply serves as a brief introduction for I would like to spend some time in the coming weeks describing in outline some of these methods. The first will be on analysing a book, but that will have to wait.
