When someone asks you why you believe the Bible to be the Word of God, what do you tell them? When you come across a passage that is hard to understand, what do you do to interpret it? This workbook will guide you through answering questions around the Doctrine of Scripture, as well as the science of Hermeneutics – the art of biblical interpretation. This is the second volume in the workbook series.

I highly recommend the printed version of this work for ease of use. The LINK HERE will allow you to get a printed copy (and there are discounts on bulk copies for Sunday School and Bible studies).
If you use the electronic version you need to be proficient in using your Kindle, Nook, Android tablet, etc. in order to keep notes as you interact with the information. Writing in the physical workbook for those users who are not as proficient with electronic devices will make the experience easier.
This is the second volume in the Reformed Apprentice workbook series, teaching Reformed Theology in a simple but interactive manner. This workbook covers the Doctrine of Scripture and the science of hermeneutics (the art of biblical interpretation). The main purpose of the workbook is to come into a deeper knowledge and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ as he has revealed himself to the church in his Word and by his Spirit through the centuries in Reformed Theology. The workbook extensively quotes the early church fathers, the Reformers, the Puritans, and Reformed theologians from various ages in order to aid the Reformed Apprentice in understanding how the Bible is God’s Word, and how to interpret it both exegetically and practically.
There is nothing like this series of interactive workbooks anywhere in the Reformed community. They are unique workbooks designed to bring Reformed Theology to students of the bible in its various facets. In old England, an apprentice is a novice who engaged in a covenant with a tradesman to learn a particular trade. A workbook of this kind was created to engage the student of scripture to be apprenticed under the teachers of Reformed Theology, thus, a Reformed Apprentice.
This workbook does not need to be completed in a short timeframe, nor is it governed by a specific amount of time. The Reformed Apprentice has as much time to complete each section at their own pace as they need in order to walk more closely with Jesus Christ, and understand the importance of the doctrine of Scripture.
