This guide has some real good points and some suggestions that are simply over the top.
The book is an update of a previous book that (I think) was written by one of the three authors. This one is well rounded with what seems to be three approaches.
As for actual curriculum, there are four parts to the book. In the first part, the author(s) suggest a system that is detailed and in a lot of steps. There are way too many steps and for me (I'm probably not alone) and following them are plain monotonous. Within the presentation, there are some real good points. I recommend skimming through the first part and follow the steps in a very abbreviated way. (1) Read the Bible text. (2) Identify the writer, reason for writing and the originally intended reader. (3) Identify the theme. (4) Apply it personally.
The rest of the book is filled with very good "pointers" for personal study. Skip chapter 10 on prophecy. The authors' views on the book of Revelation are outright assumptions based upon nothing -- or evangelical consensus. When studying Revelation, have a study partner -- even if he/she is a commentary book. I recommend Marcus Maxwell's commentary on Revelation in "Daily Bible Commentary" series, Hendrickson Publishers.

Well organized book. Covers principles. Get also the 28 day book. Buy the NISB and some colored pens and go for it.

I have used and taught the inductive method for years. I like the revised copy with it's more updated format. But know that reading this book will be like drinking from a fire hose. So take it slow.

This Book not only gives you a new way to look at and study the Word of God but also gives excellent examples that would make this a good book for even high school students. It might present a little challenging for some Middle School students but I think most will find this a good tool not only for studying the bible but also in general for book reports.

The New How to Study Your Bible book has been a great help to me in going deeper into Gods word. It points out how to look for and find who the author is,who he is speaking to, what he is saying to them and why he is saying it. You will also see how scripture interprets scripture and how to do word studies. This book has been such a blessing to me, and God is using it to teach me more about Himself . I think anyone who reads this book can't help but become more knowledgeable about Gods word, but also become closer to God Himself. I totally enjoyed this book and learned a great deal from it.Yours Truly,Vickie Nice
