Professor ARTHUR B. WHITING; Assistant Professors KENNETH B. DANIELS, WILLIAM EBELING, HARRY STURZ, THELMA BAIN, MARTHA S. HooKER; Instructor H ERBERT RICHARDSON. Ob jective. The objective of the Bible Department is to train the student in the reverent and effective use of the Bible for personal life, soul winning, and public ministry. To this end three methods of Bible study are employed. The synthetic method of Bible study is designed to enable the student to obtain a broad view of the contents of Scripture, seeing each book as a whole and its relation to the other books. The analytical method first r.onsiders a book as a unit in the light of its authorship, purpose, and theme, and then outlines the contents to show the relationship of each part to the whole. The expository method instructs the student in setting forth in detail the fullness of the divine truth. Requirements for a Maior in Bible. The student majoring in this Department must complete a minimum of thirty hours in Bible and ten in Doctrine. 101. SURVEY OF THE PENTATEUCH.
