More > little. In no area is this more apparent than with reference to Bible knowledge. Even among people who are cognizant of the fact that their faith is founded in the Scriptures, there is a tendency to ignore serious Bible study.

It is the purpose of this study to provide tools to equip the saints for the rewarding task of compassing the content and application of Scripture.< Less
