The Truth Shall Make You Free



HOW TO STUDY THIS BOOK

375

THE truths of the Word of God to which this book calls attention are of such importance now to you that you should fix them inerasibly in your heart and mind. This you can do by studying this book regularly with your Bible, "the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus." —2 Timothy 3:15.

You can make such a study privately by yourself. However, it would be more stimulating to you and more broadening to your mind, and also unselfish, if you associated others with you in this vital study. The wise proverb says: "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour." —Proverbs 27:17; Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12.

Are you a father or mother or a member of a family? Why not, then, conduct a study within the family circle? Or, if there are no family associates, why not invite a friend or neighbor to join you in this most profitable and exciting digging for truth?

If studying by yourself, first read the paragraph in "The Truth Shall Make You Free". Then test how much thereof you remember and whether you have grasped the essential things by reading the question or questions on the paragraph in the booklet and seeking to answer out of your own mind. Read next in your own Bible the texts that are cited (but not quoted) in the paragraph, and then the texts given in the booklet after the questions. Reason out what connection they have with the matter in the paragraph, and how they give Bible support and illumination thereto. Having thus treated one paragraph, proceed to the next, and so on for an hour. Do this regularly each week, and mark with joy how you grow in knowledge and understanding. If, however, you form a study group with others, the foreword of the question booklet outlines how best such a group study may be carried on. To promote such group and private studies the question booklet, herewith illustrated, of 64 pages and neatly bound, is offered to all students on a contribution of 5c a copy. Remit to
