This Bible study method, accompanied by resources, will allow you to do a Bible study in your own way. It is an example of some of the most effective Bible study methods found and discussed more fully in the following book, which is unfortunately now out of print:

Warren, Richard, with William A. Shell, 12 Dynamic Bible Study Methods, Victor Books, Wheaton, Illinois, 1987.

All the material that follows has been taken exclusively from this book and summarized for this course. I had the privilege of studying this material under William (Bill) Shell in a class on Biblical Interpretation at Reformed Bible College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1988 – 1989 and found both him and his teaching very beneficial as his heart was dedicated to the equipping of the saints. If there is any copyright infringement I am solely to blame and plead the excuse that this material is simply too valuable not to share with others.

In each method described here, a basic outline of the method will be given and some useful tools for this method will be listed. The studies begin with the basic method types and progress toward studies that are more in depth and require greater allocations of time but which will also yield greater results. Each method of Bible study presented here is accompanied by a chart, which has been reproduced from the above book.
