There are many books out there to tell you how to study the Bible. One of the best I have come across is Tim LaHaye’s book, “How To Study the Bible For Yourself”. It is straight forward and easy to understand. The methods he shows are practical methods for getting the most out of your study time without a lot of technical details. He presents a plan where you can have a firm grasp of the New Testament in a short period of time. He gives instruction such as:

What Bible Study Will Do for You
How to Read the Bible
Methods of Bible Reading
How to study the Bible by books, chapter, and subject
How to Interpret the Bible (Hermeneutics)
Accelerating the Learning Process
And how to disciple others

Its a book for new and mature Christians and will speed you on your way to learning the Bible and growing as a Christian.
