  • The main theme of the book. Try to express in a sentence or two the main message contained in the book.
  • The key verses of the book. Write these out in long hand.
  1. Learn what you can about the writer:
  • What is given about the writer’s personality and biography in the book itself?
  • Find out all you can about the writer in reference books.

  3. To whom was the book written? Give chapter and verse if the information is given in the book.
  1. What problem in the lives of the readers made the book necessary?
  2. List by chapter and verse terms that are repeated. Also words, phrases or clauses that are unique and unusual.
  1. Define all the words and phrases that need appear difficult. Be certain that you understand the meaning of every expression.
  1. What does the book teach about Jesus Christ? Make a complete outline of what the book teaches about Jesus.
  1. Study any major divisions in the structure of the book. Lest these divisions carefully and clearly.
