Description

I will never forget thy precepts; for with them thou hast caused me to live. (Psalm 119:93)

There is no situation in life for which you cannot find some word of consolation in Scripture. If you are in affliction, if you are in adversity and trial, there is a promise for you. In joy and sorrow, in health and in sickness, in poverty and in riches, in every condition of life, God has a promise stored up in His Word for you.

This classic book by Dwight L. Moody brings to light the necessity of studying the Scriptures, presents methods which help stimulate excitement for the Scriptures, and offers tools to help you comprehend the difficult passages in the Scriptures. To live a victorious Christian life, you must read and understand what God is saying to you. Moody is a master of using stories to illustrate what he is saying, and you will be both inspired and convicted to pursue truth from the pages of God’s Word.

  1. 4 out of 5

    “They had heard the minister say that no once could know whether they were saved or not, and they believed what the minister said instead of what the Word of God said. Others read the Bible to make it fit in and prove their favorite creed or notions, and if it does not do so, they will read not read it anymore. It has been well said that we must not read the Bible by the blue light of Presbyterianism, nor by the red light of Methodism, nor the violet light of Episcopalianism, but by the light of the Spirit of God” (Moody, page 114).

    How to Study the Bible by Dwight L. Moody contains 18 chapters of standard Moody descriptions and feeling, complete with his stories surrounding the many colorful people he interacts among. The first nine chapters detail why he believes Christians should study the Bible. Chapters ten to seventeen read like a Bible college survey course on how to study the Scriptures. Moody uses many sermon outline analogies, making this text most useful for the preacher in training, especially if the student preacher is giving the Bible a constitutional reading of his Scriptures. By constitutional reading I mean a student of Scripture who renders the interpretation of Scripture as he reads a legal document: analyzing and constructing what each word in the English means and tying the major points of the Bible together. Moody also suggests symbolism and numerology in his studying techniques in Scripture. He leaves his reader with the encouragement to study the Bible in order to do the personal work of leading others to Christ.

    The final chapter of this work is a bulleted summary of suggestions in future Bible study.
