A Beginner's Guide to Studying the Bible

Many of us would like to study the Bible, but don't know how to begin. A Beginner's Guide to Studying the Bible offers help in getting started with a book or smaller section of Scripture. The author provides help in using "tools" for Bible study such as commentaries, concordances, and atlases; shows how to get the whole picture about a particular Bible passage; describes basic methods of Bible study; and gives guidance on making application to life.
