Studying the Bible is different from simply reading it. Studying unlocks the richness and deep insights the texts can provide. There are many different ways we can study the Bible. We might want to learn more about a person (Jesus or a particular disciple), a particular theology (redemption or eschatology) or a favorite word (love or forgiveness). We might want to study an entire book or a particular passage. To help you do that, there are a variety of Bible study books available.
