DR. BERTRAM MELBOURNE, HOWARD UNIVERSITY SCHOLAR, PENS BIBLE STUDY BOOK FOR BUSY SCHEDULES


Book Cover

Author - Dr. Bertram Melbourne

Calumet City, IL (BlackNews.com) - Dr. Bertram L. Melbourne, professor of Biblical Language and Literature and former Interim Dean at the Howard University School of Divinity offers a new book, The Busy People's Bible Study Plan: Strategies for Personal Time with God Amidst Life's Hectic Pace (ISBN 978-1-60352-067-6, $14.95). The accompany resource is The Busy People's Bible Study Plan Journal: 52 Weeks to Developing a Deeper Relationship with God (ISBN 978-1-60352-601-2, $9.95).

These resources allow even the busiest person to place God on his or her calendar. With various job, family, social, and even church responsibilities pulling people in many different directions, it is ever more difficult to find time for personal prayer, reflection, and Bible study. Dr. Melbourne's book lays out a plan to incorporate study into your schedule whether you have 10 or 60 minutes a day.

Only a few steps allow for easy adaptation of study into each day. The plan includes 1) ways to find time in any day, 2) Bible background and information, 3) suggestions for making Bible study enjoyable, 4) tips for getting the most from a biblical passage, and 5) making the book work for your life.

Additional guidance comes in the form of a year-long companion journal that serves as a tool for guiding and recording Bible study. The Busy People's Bible Study Plan Journal will allow the reader to choose the portion to accomplish each day toward the goal to develop a regular and routine Bible study.

According to Dr. Melbourne, "This book is intended to help you begin with what little time you can afford, use it to the maximum, derive maximal benefits, and be led to a deeper and more meaningful Bible study encounter." Whether it is during a commute, taking a lunch break, or just before turning in for the day, The Busy People's Bible Study Plan shows you how to use a little time to develop deep spiritual growth. Urban Ministries, Inc., an African American Christian publishing and communications company, releases both resources.

Bertram Melbourne, Ph.D. has preached throughout the world including Africa, Australia, Bahamas, Great Britain, and Korea. He conducts workshops nationally and internationally on various issues, including Biblical Studies, 2000 Years of Christianity in Africa, AIDS, Clergy Self-Care, and Integration of Faith and Learning.
