Seeking the Summit
How to study the Bible to reach new spiritual heights.
Until the aviation industry allowed it, the only way UP was to climb a mountain.
Pause to consider that. for millennia, reaching a mountain's summit was the closest a heart could come to fulfilling its longing and passion to go UP.
What a great illustration of those who long for God - ascending a mountain and finding that He draws near to them and reveals Himself there. When ABRAHAM went up a mountain to worship, God drew near to him and blessed him (Gen 22). When MOSES went up a mountain, God gave him instructions for living (Ex 24:12). When ELIJAH went up a mountain, God gave him victory over the enemy (1 Kgs 18:20]. When PETER, JAMES and JOHN went up a mountain, God showed them the glory of His Son (Mt 17:1).
And so in this book we have chosen this illustration of climbing a mountain as our framework for "How to Study the Bible. This concept is rooted in Bible imagery and provides an excellent illustration of what studying God's Word is all about. God desires to meet with YOU on the mountain. Join the climb, and see what He has waiting for you there!
