The original course “Bible Research” was developed in the 1980s for Portland Bible College, a ministry of Bible Temple in Portland, Oregon, USA. The original syllabus was prepared and collated by Ken Malmin, being a compilation of Methods and Principles of Biblical Research materials set out by the faculty of that time, these being Kevin Conner, Rick Johnston, Bill Scheidler, Bob Stricker, Lanny Hubbard as well as Ken himself. 

Acknowledgements and thanks are due to Ken Malmin for permission to prepare an updated and more fully revised Australian course and textbook with certain additions to  the USA edition.

Acknowledgement and thanks are also due to David W. Searle for his contribution to this course, especially the section on Young’s Analytical Concordance and its accompanying workshop.
