About the “putting it together” series
On the foundation of keen observation skills and biblical interpretation principles, this series puts the focus on the central study objective of our efforts—discerning what the text means. Included here are the preferred Bible study methods of some of the best Bible teachers of our day—methods that help us see how texts grammatically and logically connect, taught in a way so that any serious Christian can learn.

“This course has taught me to look deeply into the Word of God, not passing over key elements that are vitally important to the meaning of passages. Rather than reading through the Bible quickly, I now cherish the ability to slow down, look deeply, think critically, and learn great truths from Scripture.” —Emily Pickle
“This course changed the way I read and understood the Bible--it caused me to slow down, dig deeper and ask questions of the text as I never had before. I now have an irreplaceable study tool that I look forward to using from now on. Thank you!” —GLynch
“This course provided me with the skill of tracing the flow of thought in Scripture. Whether or not arcing is the method I will use to do this, the skill of applying the arcing concepts will be very valuable for me. I highly recommend this course.” —tbhartman
“This course really was an enjoyable and educational experience. I learned not only how to arc a text of Scripture, but more importantly, I now have another very helpful and accessible tool in my arsenal to be able to see and savor God's Word in my devotional time and in my preparations for teaching.” —Ryan Hawkins

“I often tear apart the scriptures at the word level, but had never worked at linking ideas the way that Bible Arcing does. It is eye opening as to how much I've been missing. Thanks so much BibleArc for challenging my thinking and practice like this.” —Susan Jean
“I've already graduated from seminary and have already taken a hermeneutics course, but in many regards, this course was far more helpful and practical in teaching me to understand and see the flow of thought coming from the Biblical author than my hermeneutics course was. I was always encouraged and pushed in my faith as I worked through the assignments.” —RogersD75
“The arcing class gave me a lot of helpful structure for looking carefully at a passage and determining what the point is. It was so helpful, I signed up for a different class as soon as I finished it!” —Andrea Hartman
“Arcing helps me to view the word of God afresh, which nourishes my soul, helps me minister to others more effectively, and increases my joy in the Lord as I see Him unfold His truth in a very purposeful way.” —James Keen
