An overview of Bible study - taking into account literary genre, historical background, author, audience, etc. The importance of Bible study and the implications of it. How all of Scripture fits together into a meta-narrative and is ultimately about Christ.
Seven questions to ask when looking at a text:
Crux? - main idea
Context? - historical, cultural, passage, book of the Bible, whole Bible
Configuration? - genre, how is the book shaped
Characters? - author, audience, characters in the narrative

Excellent resource for laying a good foundation for how to study the word for the long haul. So very helpful and encouraging. Well written in an engaging and inspiring style. Excellent resources recommended throughout. Your reading list will grow through reading this!
Very good, some very helpful things to say about bible study & the importance of proper training when leading groups.
More theory than "how-to" but good, especially chapters 4-7 and the Genre-Specific Questions in the Appendix.
Good basic book for the study of the bible. Easy to understand and follow.
