Readers should have an understanding of how to systematically study the Bible without casual reading and Scripture memorization
Longwood, FL (Vocus) April 29, 2010
To many, the Bible is an enigmatic book that is beyond comprehension and altogether inapplicable to today’s times. However, the opposite is true. A good majority of Scripture can be related to any number of modern day situations that may occur in a believer’s life. Within the pages of Dr. Billy R. Newman’s new title, The Layman’s Guide to Systematic Theology: The Symposium of Systematic Theology and the Philosophical and Theological Influence Upon Christianity ($20.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-588-8; $32.99, hardcover, 978-1-61579-751-6), the author provides believers with a clear understanding of God in regard to how to study the various components of religious study. The book is thorough without being redundant, profound without being complicated, exhaustive without being exhausting, and technical without being tedious. It reflects the mind of a scholar and the heart of a seeker.
“Readers should have an understanding of how to systematically study the Bible without casual reading and Scripture memorization,” the author says. “Each reader should develop an appreciation of how detailed the Bible is and how it relates to every aspect of human intellect.”
Newman—a preacher, teacher, and educator—has a 43-year tenure in the ministry. He has infused his book with this experience and with his ability to relate the Bible to relevant modern day situations. “I love teaching the Word of God and, above all else, I love God with my entire being,” he says, adding that he hopes the book will resonate with those seeking to begin a disciplined learning process.
