Do you search the scriptures to validate your own beliefs and decisions, or do you allow the Word-in-text to search you? If you’re looking for a deeper experience of God’s Word, this study will support you in going beyond simple Bible study. You’ll find ideas to help you lay aside preconceived notions and daily worries, creating a place for a transforming encounter with God.
