I use “ Bible learning ” as opposed to “ Bible study ” to make the distinction between merely poring over details of a subject and enlivening what we experience in the process. Learn the Bible. Do not just “ study ” the Bible. Approach the task with a sacredly inquisitive spirit. Learn its history. Connect to the people of the Bible, particularly the leadership marks of men, for often their struggles are not much different than ours. What are your thoughts?
