What God Says about God
There are a variety of approaches to Bible study. There's a topical approach where people will get a study to learn about an attribute of God or about a particular emotion or issue they're dealing with. There are benefits to all different types of Bible study.
The one I recommend the most is going to the text to see what it says in its original context and working through a significant portion of Scripture, seeing how it ties into the rest of Scripture. That is the best way to get to know the Lord. It's the best way to understand his Word and what he wants to say to us through his Word.
So again, there are all these different approaches, but the longest-lasting—and most accurate and faithful to the Word and character of God—is to approach the Bible trying to understand what God is saying to us about himself before we look to see what he's saying to us about us.
