Guide to Bible Study

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (II Tim 2:15)

This book was written in order to help those studying the Bible understand the proper divisions of the books of the Bible so that they could more easily understand the context and purposes for the writing of each book.  The chapters serve as introductions to each section of Scripture and as short introductions to each book of the Bible.  The chapters are intentionally brief, in order that the average Bible reader can easily read, understand, and digest the information contained.

NOTE: This book is now available in a fully re-formatted PDF file, searchable and clickable, here.

Table of Contents:
  • Definitions.
  • Divisions of the Old Testament.
  • The Original Text and Its Preservation.
  • Outline of the Pentateuch.
  • Israel's History: From Moses to David.
  • The Reign of Solomon and the Divided Kingdom.
  • The Two Kingdoms.
  • The Kingdom of Judah Continued.
  • The Pre-Exilian Prophetic Books.
  • The Poetical Books.
  • The Books of Exile.
  • The Post-Exilic Books.
  • Divisions of the New Testament.
  • The Gospels and Acts.
  • The Epistles of Paul.
  • The Catholic Epistles and the Apocalypse.
  • A Brief Review.
  • Questions.
  • Appendix by Herbert L. Willett.
J.W. McGarvey's material has been used in seminaries of almost every major denomination in the United States.  Many of his books are still being kept in print by multiple publishing houses.  He was, during his life, called the "ripest biblical scholar in the world."
