The following post by Crossway books is geared toward women, but is also very applicable to us all. Jen Wilkin shares six countereffective approaches to studying the Bible in the below infographic.
In the comments section below, share which of the six approaches you struggle with the most. For me, it is “The Telephone Game Approach.” I love to read and love to read about the Word and can depend too much on the thoughts of others rather than on what God has to say directly through me.
Here’s a blurb from Crossway’s Blog:
In Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds, popular Bible study leader Jen Wilkin wants to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture than ever before.
But, sometimes, unhelpful habits prevent us from really digging into what God has to say to us in his Word.
The infographic below, drawn from chapter 2 of Jen’s book, highlights 6 common—yet ultimately counterproductive—approaches to “studying the Bible” that we all struggle with from time to time (click to enlarge).
