Yesterday I laid out the Bible reading plan that I use to get truly Christian edification out of my Bible study. Today I want to go through a case study of using my proposed plan. Profitable Bible Reading Case Study: I have been reading through 1 Samuel following the plan as previously discussed. For the most part, the beginning of the book was loaded with chapters that practically screamed with Christian encouragement. Types of Christ were easy to find, and the drama was not resistant to personal application. Recently however, that changed when we came upon chapter 13. So I thought it would make a good case study — precisely because it is not the most obvious, and lets face it, when Bible study guides pick out the easy well tread passages it feels a bit like cheating!
