W.H. Griffith Thomas, one of the founders of Dallas Theological Seminary, provides an invaluable resource for pastors, theologians and lay Christians seeking to deepen their study of God’s Word. In a day when Bible literacy is on the decline, no tool could more relevant and useful.
“The purpose of this little book,” he writes, “is the simple though necessary one of directing fresh attention to the value and importance of the study of the Bible itself as distinct from, or at least prior to, the study of books about the Bible. It is only too possible to know a great deal about the Bible and yet to know very little of the contents of the Bible. These chapters are intended to suggest methods of mastering the subject-matter of the Word of God, its facts and doctrines.”
“It is hoped that Christian workers of our Churches may find herein some suggestions for a fuller knowledge of their handbook of service and for a more efficient use of their weapon of warfare, the English Bible.”
