Having been a student of the Bible for over sixty years, I thought I knew the Book and its contents fairly well. Then in 2013, I came across some lectures by a Theologian and Historian I had known over forty years ago, and appreciated for his refreshing candour. The nearly two hundred tapes were on many interesting doctrinal topics which I studied carefully. I noticed there were also lectures on a Home Study Course, but I left those until last, as I thought they would be pretty basic.

How wrong I was! Without realising it, in a way, I had left the best to the last. As I listened to these taped lectures, I realised that for the first time in my life I was being shown how to study the Bible in a very down to earth, systematic, non-religious, non-denominational way. I avidly listened to the tapes and made copious notes.

As I completed each of the lessons, I began to realise that I was learning more about the Bible in a few weeks than I had in the previous sixty years of my life!

Previously, like most people who have any interest in religion, God and the Bible, I had learned my approach to the Book, and what I believed it taught, from the ministers of the different churches I had attended. Each had focussed on the parts of the Book that they used to explain the teachings they wanted their parishioners to learn and live by.

I began to realise that what I had learned over sixty years was in most cases very far from what the Bible actually says if one reads it with the direct help of the Holy Spirit without being influenced by the beliefs of others. It was like I was reading it for the first time! Seeing things I had never seen before.

If you decide to take advantage of this course, you will be able to make up your own mind about what to believe. It contains essential 'keys' to effective learning from the Bible that I had never come across before. Studying the Theology of the Bible, learning directly from God's Word without external influences, has completely changed my view of religion.

The course is offered for free at the moment, but there is an investment in terms of many hours of your time. It is a concentrated course, some lessons are longer than others. It is not always easy work, as one comes to realise truths that challenge and perhaps contradict many commonly held views.
