Notes & Outlines

[Excerpt How to Relate to the Bible by Woodrow Kroll] "...You want to be able to relate to the bible not just see it some big, thick book with dry stories and some endless lists of names?  People who see the bible that way are so misguided.  Probably, they have never read the bible all the way through.  And when you read the bible all the way through you are going to find the meanings that are in the message of the words of the bible. You're going to learn the lay of the land.  You're going to stand back and look at the trees....When you and I understand that God did not write this book to sit on our coffee table. He did not write this book to tuck under our arm when we go to church. He did not write the bible to be another book in the pew. He wrote the bible to change our lives....This is a book that itself features many literary forms....You want adventure, we have it in the bible--David and Goliath, Daniel in the lion's den, Paul's shipwreck--all examples of significant adventure....What about love stories?  The story of Abraham and Sarah....How about Boaz and Ruth? Or Joseph and Mary, the mother of Jesus?...What about loyal friendships? You want stories of friendships?  Joshua and Caleb, David and Jonathan, Paul and Timothy.  You want intimate letters where a friend writes to a friend? Read Paul writing to Timothy or writing to Philemon. You want books that contain convincing arguments about Christianity? Read the Book of Hebrews or the Book of Romans.  You want a compelling history--something that will tell you facts about history--give you names and dates and places...? Read the Book of Samuel or Kings or the read Book of Acts....The bible has an incredible literary variety.  You want close up biographies? Read any of the four gospels....You want the collected wisdom of great men? Read the Book of Proverbs or the Book of James....You say you're into poetry?  You'll not find any better than the Book of Psalms. You want to know what the future holds? You want to know prophecy? You want some insight as to what is ahead of us?...Read the Book of Isaiah or the Book of Revelation...Read it.  Become familiar with the author.
