Bible Study Tools

After reading the text, take time to really engage. Choose one of the Bible study methods to help root God’s word deep in your heart. Take time to study, both on your own and with a community of people. The Bible study guide below will help you with both personal and community Bible study. Try each method and use the best one that suits the genre of Scripture (History, Law, Poetry) and your personal study preference.
