Observe...Interpret...Apply

People with Bibles don’t always know how to use them. They’re good at absorbing and repeating material from sermons, commentaries, and blogs, but they miss the fullness and joy that comes from studying the Bible for themselves. The power to change the world is available, but it goes untapped.

Though study aids are helpful, imagine if your primary ministry curriculum was Scripture itself. You could study the Bible, teach people how to study it themselves, and expect those folks to lead their own Bible studies with their neighbors, coworkers, and friends. Each year, you’d see an increasing number of men and women wielding the sword of the Spirit, piercing hearts and drawing the lost to Jesus.

Ordinary people can learn to study the Bible. These people may not have been to seminary. They don’t have much free time. But they love Jesus and want to be more like him. They want to know him.

Knowable Word offers a foundation on why and how to study the Bible. Using a running study of the first chapter of Genesis, it illustrates how to observe, interpret, and apply the Scripture—and gives the vision behind each step. It also shows how to read each Bible passage in light of salvation history. But besides being just a how-to on Bible study, it fuels the desire to learn and grow through studying the Scriptures.

This book will appeal to three kinds of people:

  1. Beginners who love God and his Word
  2. Mature Christians who want to improve their Bible study skills
  3. Leaders who long not only to teach but also to equip

Knowable Word offers what each group needs: a sensible Bible study method. By learning to observe, interpret, and apply, ordinary people will grow extraordinarily close to Jesus Christ as they learn to study his knowable Word.

About the Author:

Peter Krol has taught the Bible since 1996 both as a collegiate missionary with DiscipleMakers (www.dm.org) and as an elder in both Presbyterian and Independent churches. He's trained dozens of people to study the Bible. Many of them now train others who, in turn, have begun training a third generation. With each new year, he reads nothing but the Bible until he finishes the Bible—not because it makes God any happier with him, but because it makes him happier with God in Christ.
