James Gray on Mastering the Bible

Below are a couple links to blog articles which overview the synthetic Bible study method of Dr. James Gray. Gray was former President of Moody Bible Institute and one of the authors/editors of the Scofield Reference Bible.

Essentially, the system boils down to reading and rereading a single Bible book over and over until you internalize it and then move on to another book. I first heard of this method in a John MacArthur sermon, but have later come to realize that this method pre-dates MacArthur by quite a bit.

  1. Way too simple. Pray and read a book over and over? The 21st century Amazon.com Christian will never go for it. Now let’s see if I can master Genisis by August.

      I’m surprised there is not yet a ‘Purpose Driven Bible’.

      I don’t know if you can *master* Genesis by August, but I think Christians would do better to read the Bible more instead of reading ‘about’ the Bible and other topics.
