Samuel Ridout (1855~1930) was an American Bible teacher of the late 1800s and early 1900s. He practiced what he preached and was well known for his knowledge and understanding of Scripture. In this book he sought to teach us how he learned Scripture. He emphasized writing—filling notebooks from the oral and written ministry of others and from one’s own study. He spoke often of making notes in one’s Bible that had been of special help during study. He emphasized memorization—how a few verses learned every day will so often come to mind during one’s daily activities and make Scripture come alive in our minds. He believed such memorization could on go well into old age. Then he wrote about types of study—topics, biographical material (so many interesting characters from whom we can learn so much), types (pictures, examples of great truths), and the dispensations. For example, so many people mix up Israel and the Church because they don’t see that God operates in different ways at different times! How needful to make time each day for such study! Above all, Mr. Ridout shows that all Scripture points to Christ—His Person and work. Therefore, all study increases our appreciation of Him! May this book encourage young and older to search the Scriptures often and with purpose of heart!
