We've all experienced times when we have not eaten a balanced diet or we've eaten too many sweets. We feel sick, light-headed, and occasionally depressed, or we become irritated and edgy. It's the body's way of letting us know that it's lacking sufficient nourishment. Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sufficient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner life begins to suffer the consequences. We become shallow and selfish, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition.
In Searching the Scriptures, respected Bible teacher Chuck Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into Scripture and uncover its profound truths for our lives. He outlines the principles of Bible study that will help you understand God's Word, apply it, and communicate it clearly to those around you. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide, for this life and the next. Chuck explains how we can fix our own spiritual meals, then invites us to feast on nourishing truths we can discover in God's Word.

Just as preparing a meal requires planning and execution, Swindoll (Living the Proverbs) believes that studying Scripture calls for a systematic and well-planned approach in order to extract the necessary lessons of the Bible. Framing Bible study as a “literary banquet,” Swindoll takes his readers on a conversational and broadly appealing journey through Scripture, providing strategies for readers to consume the ideas and wisdom found in the Bible by identifying where biblical teaching applies to their daily lives. And once all of this is internalized, readers are instructed to go out and share what they’ve learned. “There are spiritually hungry people all around us” who need a seat at the table, Swindoll argues, and Christians have as their mission the task of reaching out and blessing all humankind with the spiritual food they’ve enjoyed. Swindoll offers a wonderfully innovative approach to understanding the importance of Bible study, using the metaphor of a spiritual meal to motivate readers to come to the feast.
