This is a new study guide developed by Father Jay C. Jakes of Bluffton, SC. Bluffton is a town on the western shore of Lake Oconee in South Carolina. As a close reading expert, and father of five teenagers, Father Jay has created a study Bible to help him teach the Bible in his Church and as part of a public relations exercise to help others understand how to learn the Bible. In this study guide, Father Jay provides a step-by-step approach to understanding the Bible and how to learn it for yourself.
The best way to learn something is to do it yourself. Especially in the world of the Bible where so many things are passed along and most people don’t have the time or patience to read everything themselves, this is the only way to really learn. No one can take a lesson from you if you do not understand what you are being taught. And there is always going to be a lesson, no matter how much time we have.
This Bible is divided into three major sections, giving us three study guides to work from. King James Version, Revised Standard Version, and New American Standard Version. Each Bible is presented in a very easy to understand format for you to use right away.
Each Bible is presented with the best of English into the New Translation, but with careful editing of the words used and their context, making sure that everything comes through. There is not a lot of good in the King James Version, but the best of the New Translation, and even the Old Testament has been edited. This way, if you need to be corrected or changed, you will be able to go to the margin, copy the exact text, and then go back and alter your work to match what is provided in the Bible.
The other great thing about this study Bible is that each of the three sections is presented in short paragraphs that have a purpose. For example, if you want to read about God, there is a paragraph that you will want to read, and then another paragraph that you can easily skip over. But if you need to know the story of Christ, or the New Testament, then you can go back and read those paragraphs, and then have a study Bible that you can quickly turn to if you need to.
This is the best method that anyone can use to understand the Bible, because the New Translation is very modern and not that difficult to read. In fact, for someone who is used to a fast paced education that has very little time to spend on the Bible, it is the perfect study Bible. It was even used by President Bush when he studied the Bible during the Iraq War.
With the King James Bible, your study becomes more of a learning experience than a reading experience. You will never run out of material to learn, because the New Translation gives you an endless supply of books and other information to read. It also gives you a very simple vocabulary to use when reading, so that you can jump from one page to the next without having to stop and read long paragraphs. It is a very effective method of reading, and if you want to continue your studies even after you finish the Bible, you can use it with an Audio Study Bible or download your own MP3 Bible studies to your iPod or iTunes.
If you like the idea of being able to learn the Bible this way, then this study guide will be just right for you. And it is offered for free, so you will not need to worry about getting a subscription fee to use it. In addition, it is a very complete study Bible that you can use to learn the Bible from.
