One to One Bible Reading: A Simple Guide for Every Christian by David Helm lives up to its title. It is simple. That is the book’s key strength. Helm lays out easy ways to read the Bible with non-Christians, new Christians, and Christians ready to lead and serve. The methodology and preparation laid out in the book provides encouragement and simplicity so that even a novice to Scripture reading would feel reasonably confident in sitting down with another to read the Bible.
The book lays out two methods to approaching the Word – the Swedish Method and the COMA Method – as well as suggestions on how to approach different genres of the Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament. Such is the simplicity of the layout and the practicality of the suggestions that the book lends itself to being read by those interested in knowing how to read the Bible one on one with another person and suggestions on how to lead a small group Bible study.
