How to Study the_Bible
By Samuel Ridout
Ridout’s work on how to study the Bible studies different forms of Bible Study. Ridout examines from memorizing Scripture through Bible study methods.
To many, a handbook on such a subject may seem needless, and an intrusion into what must ever be left to the individual alone as guided by the Spirit of God. Others, already diligent workers in this field, will find, perhaps, little to help; but it is hoped that large numbers of the Lord’s people who have a longing to become better acquainted with the contents of His word may find useful suggestions in the following pages.
First. No method of Bible study, however useful in itself and suggestive, can do away with the absolute necessity for repentance and new birth. The natural mind is “alienated from the life of God,” and no amount of education, even in the word of truth itself, can change the character of that which is “enmity against God.” The Sunday-school teacher must never forget this as he faces a class of bright, intelligent young people, week by week. If they have not been brought to repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ, the great work has not even been begun which is to form the foundation of their whole life. Well would it be for all who are seeking to make plain the word of God, to remember this, and with all the enthusiasm that they bring to the opening up of this wonderful storehouse of divine riches, to agonize in prayer for the conversion of those who, in the providence of God, have been committed to them.
