198: Studying the Scriptures (Bonus Episode)

June 28, 2016

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

Challenge and Be Challenged by the Scriptures


In this bonus episode, I describe my process of preparing for the podcast and reading the scriptures, as well as make recommendations for scripture reading in general. I discuss literary, personal, intertextual, and historical approaches, and send scripture reading down the rabbit hole. The takeaway is that we can both find personal scripture that nourishes and speaks to us, as well as joining a community of scripture readers that stretches back millennia and covers the world.
