The Bible is the inspired word of God. Every child of His must know it by heart. The Bible records the many things God did for us in the past and the many words He spoke. It also registers the many ways by which He led people in former days. It is therefore imperative for us to study the Scriptures if we would desire to know how richly and extensively God has provided for us. The speaking of God to us today is based upon the words He has already spoken; His speaking through us today is also built upon what He has once before uttered. Hence we need to store the word of God richly in our heart before we can hear God's speaking today and before we can be used as ministers of His word.
The aim in our compiling this volume is to supply some prerequisites and principal methods of studying the Scriptures to those who have a heart to know the Bible. May God bless the readers as well as this book.
