This little book landed on our living room table last year and caused quite the furore. A reccommendation by a friend, my husbando brought it home and read the whole thing in a weekend.
The next week someone visiting saw the book and snaffled it away to read.
After that it kept getting lend out until we are now at the point of no return – we cant quite remember where it is.
The short book talks of the importance of reading scripture together. The idea is to meet with one other person, pray, read a chapter of the Bible together and then talk through the things that stood out (lightbulb), the things that are confusing (question mark) and what has been a challenge (arrow).
* Lightbulb – What stood out?
? Question mark – What was confusing?
> Arrow – What is the challenge?
It is easy with the symbols. Infact it is incredibly simple. No embarrassingly easy study, no painstakingly boring workbooks – two folk and a Bible.
I have started One to One Bible reading in the past few weeks and have taken to it like a duck to water. We started in Titus, a very short and practical three chapters. The hardest thing was asking the other person to join with you. Once I had explained the whole process it was grand.
So here is the bad part of this review – I really cant advise you to go out and buy this book as an aid to your Bible study ( Sorry Mr Helm).
I advise you to just read your Bible.
Read it on your own. Read it with a friend.
