To many, the Bible is an out-of-touch book that we force ourselves to read because it is a "spiritual-discipline." However, when one, guided by the Holy Spirit, can have the Scriptures come alive, it know longer feels like an obligation but rather a privilege to interact with the Word of God. Jim Battle's Scriptures Alive is an incredible method to begin to understand the Bible in a practical and relevant way. I highly recommend it!

God has instructed us to meditate on His Word, not just read it; Scriptures Alive provides invaluable tools for doing just that. The questions Jim puts forth teach how to practically apply God's Word to our lives. The format is conducive to personal meditation as well as group Bible studies. I have benefited greatly from it, and highly recommend it!

At Last practical help! Volumes have been written about how to study the Bible, but for most of us it is still a daunting task. Jim Battle has developed a wonderful, practical way to do serious Bible study that grew out of his own personal trial and error efforts and frustrations. Scriptures Alive is a step-by-step guide that helps the rest of us actually do Bible study and enjoy the process.

I have been looking for a way to study the bible for years where I would not just read it but absorb it into my very spirit. The way Jim makes reading the bible fun and interesting makes this very possible. Thanks Jim for being led by the Holy Spirit and writing this God breathed method.

Congratulations Jim!!! This work finds a great balance between brevity and completeness while fulfilling the purpose captured in its title, “Scriptures Alive.” I enjoyed the explanation regarding the power of the scriptures and its ability to grow us individually like no other source due to it supernatural origin and ability to tap into our unique set of experiences, training, environment, etc. I would recommend this for any Bible Study group looking for a deeper walk with the Lord and a well thought out path toward this end.

Jim Battle understands the need to study God's Word in our fast-paced, time-crunched culture. In “Scripture Alive”, he provides us with easy-to-use tools that when applied a few minutes a day enables the user to draw meaning, understanding and application from the Bible. The user will find great value in its use. I strongly recommend it..
