Dannah Gresh: Author Carolyn McCulley has observed something among women. When they learn to study the Bible effectively, they begin to love it.
Carolyn McCulley: Several years ago when I was a memeber of a very large church, we had developed a women’s discipleship program. Part of that was just to help women who were relatively new converts learn the basics about womanhood.
But I found that a lot of these women didn’t know how to study their Bibles. They would read them, but they didn’t know how to study them. So almost every one of these twelve week courses that we did, I would devote one of the weeks to, “This is how you study your Bible. Here are some other resources to help you understand the original languages, to help you understand to cultural background, to help you understand what other theologians have said about this.”
