A (typically) brilliant blog article by Dr. Michael S. Heiser on why most churches don't teach much Bible content. For more from Dr. Heiser, be sure to visit his website at drmsh.com, although if you are the type who likes the lack of Bible content in church, his blogs may be a bit meaty for you!

Is there a "best practice" for reading the Bible?

So what lesson does this passage of Scripture give us?
