James E. Faulconer, 1999, 157 pages, paperback
Cultivate your love for the scriptures and deepen your knowledge with the help of a scripture study process compiled by James E. Faulconer. Rich scripture study is facilitated by tools and techniques that help us focus on what the scriptures can teach us. This study aid offers pointers and suggestions that will familiarize beginning students of the scriptures with the many resources available to them, as well as help more experienced students improve the overall effectiveness of their scripture study.
Faulconer discusses a helpful method and the purpose of outlining, an in-depth method of cross-referencing, how to ask cogent and thought-provoking questions about the scriptures, the benefits of using dictionaries and concordances, the relation between words and ideas apparent through rhetorical studies, and using the valuable reference tools in the LDS edition of the scriptures. He then provides sample notes developed using the study tools he describes to show how research and pondering can make scripture study even more meaningful.
A profound love for the scriptures has led James E. Faulconer to put together the scripture study plan contained in Scripture Study: Tools and Suggestions. He has spent many years teaching the truths contained in the scriptures to students at Brigham Young University, and in this book he shares the techniques he has refined through personal study and through his work with students.
