This is a wonderful vignette about how Martin Luther viewed the Bible in 4 ways. Each way builds upon the other and instructs us in the way in which we should pray.

  1. Scripture as a text book. We learn about God.
  2. Scripture as a hymn book. We learn how to praise this God.
  3. Scripture as a confession book. We learn where we fall short.
  4. Scripture as a prayer book. We learn what to ask help for.
