A truly revolutionary book!  The contents of this book completely changed how I read and studied the Bible.  If you are looking for a book that "puts the cookies on the lower shelf" and can equip you in your bible study--you've found it!!!  This is THE best book on Bible study and is destined to remain a classic.

Howard Hendricks taught me how to study the Bible in a way that revolutionized my life and my teaching. Living by the Book is the very material "Prof" Hendricks taught me and is now available to everyone. To this day, I open the Bible daily using the principles found in this book. I highly recommend it to you.
-Chip Ingram, President, Walk Thru the Bible
Five decades of Howard Hendrick's students all give the same testimony: his course in Bible Study Methods marked them for life.  Because Living By the Book is a distillation of that course, all of us would also offer this counsel: Don't miss this book if you too want to see your study of God's Word come alive.
-Duane Litfin, President, Wheaton College
My spiritual inspiration and mentor has been Dr. Howard Hendricks. I am one of thousands who have been impacted by his ministry. Having known Howie and through Howie, Bill,  for over  30 years, I know to a small degree the wisdom contained in these men's minds and hearts. Living By the Book is the way that Howie and Bill have lived their lives and, as such, this is a book that is readable and useable by everyone. It is with great joy and enthusiasm that I endorse and recommend Living By the Book.
-Ron Blue, President, CFPN

Teach a man to study the Bible and you fill his life.  Teach a man to train others and you fill others lives. A generation is indebt to 'The Prof' for teaching us how to train fishermen.  Thanks for helping us know and love the Savior through His word.
-Dr. Michael Easley, former president, Moody Bible Institute
