Note from the Editor: “One of the best books I’ve ever read on the subject.” – Therese B. McMahon
God has spoken to his people, his word is contained in holy Scripture, and in speaking to them, he requires that they know what his word says. Knowing the content of the Bible, means knowing God and his Son Jesus Christ. Christ himself is the Living Word. He is the Logos which declares and communicates the Father to his church (John 1:18).
This work is a compilation of faithful teachings on both reading and studying the word of God, as well as hearing the word of God preached. Three of the works contained in this volume have not been published since the day they were originally printed for the public: those by Richard Greenham, Daniel Burgess and John Philips.
