Reading Time: 3 minutes

Author, Speaker and Bible Teacher, Dr. Feyi Obamehinti is the author of a new book: Discover How To Study Your Bible Guide! 

Inspiring and persuading, Feyi Obamehinti writes an eye opening powerful book on the great need of Bible literacy in the Western Hemisphere. 

Written to help people understand that the Bible is God’s love letter to His people. A living treasure of wisdom for every area of life. Though the pandemic brought a halt to many churches, followers of Jesus increased in their love, passion and commitment to the Bible. That was not the case for many God loving people. Many of them stopped reading their Bibles during the pandemic altogether; while others abandoned their faith in God completely. The book emphasizes Bible literacy as a discovery journey anyone can take to find life’s treasures and purpose. 

In a 2021 article about the great decline of Bible literacy in the Western Hemisphere, research conducted by Barna, a one stop place for research and insights about faith and culture in collaboration with the American Bible Society presented data from the research that suggest that there has been an increase in Bible disengagement in the Western hemisphere. Simply put, people in the Western Hemisphere are not reading the Bible as they did decades ago.

One of the more interesting aspects of the book from a sociological and cultural perspective is her insights on why engagement with the Bible is in decline in the West. Some of the reasons given for this decline are the size of the Bible (approximately 1200 pages), the complexity of language, the different translations and inadequacy of how to effectively apply or use the Bible in daily life. Yet, all these reasons cannot be compared to the value and benefit acquired from a constant Bible literacy, according to the author. The benefits far outweigh the challenging research findings. Dr. Feyi’s prayer is that, this quick Bible Study guide will provide an approach to reading and studying the Bible in such a way that the reader will be re-introduced to the Bible and the Author; and for others, the Bible Study guide will help them fall in love afresh with God and His everlasting Words found in the Bible. The accessibility found in the book to some difficult truths and concepts in the Bible make it a very engaging read.

Dr. Feyi states that there has never been a time like now, to know the Bible for oneself! In an age of culture wars, discovering what the Bible says is key to every Christian living a purposeful and a life of impact “that brings honor and glory to God.” The Bible Study guide explains how to study the Bible, why studying the Bible is beneficial to purposeful living, and provides sample plans to study the Bible.  

Written as a guide to help people develop a daily Bible reading practice, Obamehinti provides a practice study chapter at the end of the book on how often one needs to read the Bible, as well as how to select what to read and study in the Bible. Furthermore, the guide provides an assessment and evaluation approach in reference to one’s growth and relationship with God. She affirms the possibility of assessing growth in Christ, which is not based on age or longevity. Rather, growth in Christ is based, according to the author, “on obedience to the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.”
