From former students
“No Bible study method has helped me see and enjoy more in God’s Word than arcing and bracketing. The bracketing class covered the basics of the method while also encouraging the student to excel still more. I’m grateful to God for Biblearc.com.”
“This class was terrific! I often think I see the connections among verses of scripture, but sometimes have a hard time drawing out the actual relationship. This class really helped me “connect the dots.” Arcing and bracketing have quickly become one of the most used arrows in my quiver of bible study tools.”
“This course is, in my opinion, a necessary investment for any serious preacher and Bible study leader who does not have prior experience in bracketing. Bracketing offers so much to the process of exegesis and sermon preparation – and for the price of this course and what you get in return, it will be one of the most worthwhile uses of your money.”
“Learning the bracketing method has not only helped me to dig deeper for more insight into God’s word, but it has really helped to ground both my mind and heart in it!”
