For three years, Bible Study Magazine has been delivering an impressive array of tools for Bible study.
We’ve always featured cover articles on church leaders and biblical scholars with a focus on their interaction with Scripture. You will find it inspiring to read how Scripture enriches the lives of leaders like Josh McDowell, John Piper, Kay Arthur, and Mark Driscoll.
Subscribers to Bible Study Magazine enjoy powerful discussions with notable church figures, discussions which yield quotes like:
“Some of the happiest hours of my life have been sitting at the desk with a sheet of paper and the biblical text and thinking, ‘How does this text divide? What are its main themes? What’s going on here?’ You are looking into God’s workshop. God is in this text and you are actually seeing how the Holy Spirit worked; that’s just amazing.”—N. T. Wright
“I’ve done pretty much the same thing for the past 30 years—I have a morning Bible study time. What works best for me is to have one book in the Bible that I am reading, and I read until something strikes me. I don’t have any prescribed length to read—it could be a chapter or a few verses. When something strikes me, though, I’ll put a date in the margin of the page. . . . [I’ll note why] that passage speaks to me. In all my Bibles for the past 30 years, you will see dates in the margins.”—Max Lucado
“I don’t memorize verses that don’t help my soul. I’m not into mechanical memorizing. I’m into fighting the fight of faith. I want to memorize Scripture so that I can defeat the devil at 3 o’clock in the afternoon—that’s why I memorize!”—John Piper
It is stimulating and empowering to note how these leaders and scholars regularly interact with the Scripture in their personal life, and an encouragement to do the same.
On the cover of the Sept–Oct ’11 issue of Bible Study Magazine, you’ll find Chuck Smith, founder of Calvary Chapel. He told us that Bible study is addicting: “The more you know, the more you hunger and thirst for knowledge of the Word. . . . Feed that, and watch the desire grow.”
We at Bible Study Magazine couldn’t agree more.
Make sure to subscribe by September 30 to begin your subscription with Chuck Smith’s remarkable insight.
