It seemed beyond obvious that if God had given us his revealed will in the Bible, I should be spending more time trying to know and understand it. But the task seemed overwhelming. Where was I supposed to start? And why weren't the things I was already doing making the problem discernibly better? How was I supposed to move the mountain of my biblical ignorance?
The answer, of course, was gloriously simple. The answer was "one spoonful at a time." Thankfully, someone gave me a spoon.
Easily my favorite book this year, Jen Wilkin does a wonderful job explaining basic Bible study principles in an easy to grasp manner. This is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the word of God.
