I took a bible class at church and Wisdom for a Lifetime this was the recommended book for the class. The book says everything in its title. There are ways in which to read the bible with purpose and intelligence. I commend Alan Studebaker for sharing his knowledge on how to see the bible not as a book that you cannot understand, but as a book that makes you want to read more.

I also want to thank my teacher at church for recommending this book for the class.

This is the best Bible handbook, written from a metaphysical perspective, that is available. It covers all the bases, from translations to interpretive methods. I liked the way he evaluated the different translations, especially Lamsa's, which seems to have set some against Studebaker. Lamsa's "doctorate" came from a university which he attended only as an undergrad for a few weeks before dropping out, which may give an indication of the accuracy of his work. The then-chief librarian of Unity Library, Dr. Harold Whaley, once told me "I am convinced that Lamsa is almost a fraud." After doing further research, he followed that up with "I am now ready to lose the 'almost'." His early publisher, Holman, dropped him for the same reason. The author deserves praise for being honest and forthright. And it is a good read.

The subtitle: How to Get the Bible Off the Shelf and Into Your Hands is so appropriate. It's perfect for the non-Bible scholar that wants to understand more. It helps you understand the tools and how to use them. An excellent starting place if you want to begin to explore the Bible on your own!

There is a big difference between wisdom and knowledge.
Charles Fillmore, the father of the Unity movement, defines wisdom as "Intuitive knowing; spiritual intuition; the voice of God within as the source of our understanding..." and of knowledge he says, "Intellectual knowledge is independent of feeling; it is literal knowledge without consideration of Spirit."
The author of this book, Unity minister Alden Studebaker, seems to have confused the two in his book, Wisdom for a Lifetime. Entirely too much of this text (better than half) has to do with the author's criteria for selecting what he considers a "recommended" translation of the Bible and his methodology for studying it. Any Unity student knows that Bible study is guided by Spirit, not directed through adherence to "guidelines".
He states that in choosing a "recommended" translation we immediately reject any Bible version translated by one man. He makes special mention of the Lamsa Bible (used for decades in Unity and loved by all Truth students) as a translation not "recommended" under his criteria. His reasoning? "Two heads are better than one!" Well, if we follow this logic then we should reject each of the Prophets (only one head) and the work of Unity's Charles Fillmore (only one head) such as the Metaphysical Bible Dictionary, as lacking the insight afforded by another head. I'm sure that also means we must reject Jesus the Christ as well (after all, he only had one head)!
There are many Bibles out there translated by one man, all of them very scholarly and above this kind of criticism. Translation by committee is obviously more important to the author than the revelation of one Divinely Inspired translator. In this implication, author Studebaker, as a Unity minister, shows that he has lost his spiritual focus. Unity is all about individual revelation and personal spiritual direction!
In Unity, we can only understand the Bible and benefit from it through the eyes of Spirit, not through nitpicking and hair-splitting of the letter!
I had high hopes that this book would continue in the tradition of the great classic Unity works of Elizabeth Sand Turner (whose superb set of 3 books on the Bible are staples in any Truth library) but I was sorely disappointed.
I would advise Truth Students to stick with Charles Fillmore's Metaphysical Bible Dictionary and The Revealing Word, and Elizabeth Sand Turner's Let There Be Light, Your Hope of Glory, and Be Ye Transformed. These five books, along with a good Bible (KJV, RSV, Lamsa, or whichever translation you are guided to by Spirit) will provide all the tools any Unity student could possibly need.
As a Unity minister myself, I cannot recommend this book to anyone, because while it is full of knowledge, it is sorely lacking in wisdom.
