- The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has used over 100,000 copies of this book in their outreach
- A practical and effective guide to applying the Bible
How to Apply the Bible explains the process of reading, understanding, and "doing" Scripture. Sunday school teachers, pastors, and Bible study leaders will grab on to key principles that revolutionize the way we communicate God's truth to others, including:
- determining the objective message
- being specific about application, then taking manageable action steps
- utilizing several application techniques
- balancing study time versus application time
- inviting the Holy Spirit to help us "live" God's Word
Getting the most out of the Bible becomes easier as readers enjoy the benefit of visual charts, chapter-at-a-glance summaries, and four practical appendixes.
