How do we read the Bible well? Why did God choose to give us 66 books of such varying kinds over the span of more than 2000 years? What do we know about His intention for its use in our own lives and in the life of the church?
The Bible is not a rulebook, or a handbook to Christian life, or even an information source about God. Rather, it is God’s living Word, through which He reveals Himself to us and engages us in a relationship with Him.
How do we read the Bible in this way, using our Bible reading to enter into a daily encounter with the Living God? How do we know that we are understanding it correctly? And where do we turn for help when we reach parts that we don’t understand?
This class is focussed on helping each of us develop better Bible reading habits. It will be taught by Anthony Brown in two three-week blocks with a two-week break over Easter in the middle. It is suitable for any Bible reader, including those just beginning and those with many years of Bible reading behind them, as well as those engaged in teaching the Bible in small groups.
