My goal on this site is to help ordinary people learn to study the Bible. I pursue that aim through a few practices:
- On Mondays, I demonstrate Bible study skills on a particular text of Scripture.
- On Wednesdays, I link to other pages on the Internet that either demonstrate good Bible study skills or lay the ground work for good Bible study skills.
- On Fridays, I usually back away from the text to reflect on the skills themselves. Currently, I’m explaining methods for leading effective Bible studies.
All three practices fit into a larger model for teaching people how to study the Bible. But as each post comes and goes, and we focus on very specific skills, we can easily lose sight of the model.
That’s why I occasionally write brief posts like this by way of reminder.
And that’s also why I created a table of contents page for my series on Proverbs 1-9. It’s gone so long that the forest has been long since overgrown with trees. This table of contents will let you know all the main topics I’ve hit so far, and it will let you know what remains before the series finishes. I didn’t link to every post but only to the first post for each segment of text. From that post, you should be able to click through to the next post and the next if you’d like to read through a particular section.
I’ll activate the last few links as I finish those posts over the next few months. Please let me know if you have any ideas for making this page more useful!
