Do you want to study the Bible on your own but find yourself overwhelmed by complicated, cumbersome study methods?

Are you a group leader looking for exciting resources to bring new life to your teaching?

Is your time in the Word dry and lifeless, or do you find Scripture hard to understand?

Victoria Johnson--a busy speaker, teacher, author and mother--has discovered an easy-to-follow method that has made Bible study come alive for her and for many others she has taught. In this book she reveals seven practical principles for study that can transform your life.

Related with passion, warmth, wisdom and humor, Johnson's step-by-step instructions can help both individuals and groups discover the power of Bible study for themselves.
