Setting the Heart Aflame –– Reading Scripture Deeply and Well

There are different ways of reading, depending on your purpose for reading at the time. This class explains the differences between intensive, extensive, and close Bible reading and will provide direction and suggestions for the purposes best suited to each style of reading the Bible. Selected passages and examples will illustrate how and when intensive, extensive, and close reading may be applied to the Bible. This will equip you to learn how to understand better what the biblical authors were communicating to their original audiences as well as understand how to more responsibly and accurately apply the Bible to your own life.
