“Profiting from the Word of God” — 9 Questions to Ask Ourselves

But things get buried so quickly there, and I’ve found these questions really helpful to me in examining my own heart and life as I read the Scriptures. This is basically a summary of A. W. Pink’s book Profiting from the Word of Read More …
