About David Tavender

David Tavender is a writer for the Open Bible Trust and has written several publications for helping students of scripture.  Most Christians tend to rely heavily on Bible commentaries, church leaders, friends and even hymns and Christian songs to help them determine what they should believe. While all of these play a part, it is important that we know why we believe what we believe, and that we know the scriptural basis for our beliefs. If we are personally responsible for what we believe, then everything we believe should be measured up against what the Bible has to say. "Reading the Bible Yourself" is a booklet that will help you:

  • Understand what is being spoken of in a passage of Scripture
  • Compare what you read in the Bible with what you hear someone else say
  • Conduct your own study of Biblical topics
