These Life-studies I keep talking about

October 19th, 2011 Categories: enjoying... 4 comments

Ok, so I’ve mentioned the Life-study of the Bible in a few posts now, such as here and here, and often quote little snippets of my enjoyment from it, such as here and here. Life-study of the Bible is a book-by-book commentary by a brother named Witness Lee, and it really helps to open up the truth and life in the Bible.

A few years ago, an older brother encouraged me to read the Life-studies because they are according to the teaching of the apostles in the New Testament, and therefore the result is that they cause us to love the Lord more. They certainly do not replace the Bible, not at all, but they do open up the Bible. Although I’ve been reading the Life-studies somewhat inconsistently over the past few years, I’ve certainly experienced that the more I read, the more I love the Lord, and the more I love His Word as it is opened up to me.

Now, my motivation for posting this is not at all commercial, I’m simply sharing something I’ve discovered and am enjoying :) The great thing is there are so many ways to dive into the riches in these publications:

  • If you like physical books you can purchase the Life-studies (from Amana Trust Books in the UK, and look out for the 30% discount on a particular Life-study each month, and from distributors in other countries).
  • If you like the convenience of handheld devices you can purchase them as ePublications (from Living Stream Ministry).
  • If you are anywhere in the world with an internet connection you can read them completely free online at ministrybooks.org.
  • If you like to hear rather than (or as well as) read you can listen to them as short radio programmes (broadcast in the UK on Premier Christian Radio, with the complete archives available online).
  • You can also make your own schedule to read the Life-studies. If I stick to the schedule I made (which I know I won’t, but hopefully I won’t stray too far off) and read one message a day, I’ll finish reading the New Testament Life-studies in August 2014. It seems like a long way off, but the more I am reading, the more I am encouraged to keep going!

    And feel free to share with me your enjoyment from reading the Life-studies also! You can post in the comments or email me, or tell me about your blog or twitter account, or even share with me face-to-face if you know me. And thank you to all those who are so faithful to reply to my posts in these various ways, and are encouraging me to keep writing :)

    You can actually visit the official Life-Study of the Bible site to find out a lot more about it and ways to access it. The above are just the ways that I use!

    If you have a Kindle (or the app), you can buy at least some of the lifestudies in the Amazon Kindle store.

    unlike maria antonette, i would say, “give them food!!” we’ve got a wonderful storehouse of God’s riches. they are for dispensing to all starving saints who desire to eat more of Christ for their daily diet. increase our appetite, olj. Christ is the only food that won’t make us obese the more we consume! give me this healthy food, healthy lifestyle any time. ptl for His divine economy to make us like Him in life & nature, (but not in the Godhead). eating is the way! hallelujah, sister.
