Relying on someone else's study is much like kissing through a pane of glass-you get the same general idea, but you miss the personal excitement!" says Daniel Estes in this manual designed to help you "shatter the glass" by learning to study the Bible on your own and then live out its applications. This manual is set up to tell you what you need to know and give you an opportunity to practice it. You'll learn pitfalls to avoid and strategies to practice so you can accurately interpret and apply God's Word. You'll find this manual enlightening and practical. You'll also discover there's nothing better than learning and living God's Word!
