How to Read the Bible

Reading the Bible can feel like a daunting, overwhelming task. But it doesn’t have to be! Here, we aim to make God’s Word more understandable and less intimidating. You’ll be introduced to three main genres of the Bible and recognize how the features of each genre guide interpretation. By learning to apply this knowledge to your Bible reading, your appreciation for its wisdom, beauty, and applicability will grow.

We estimate that this will take you 7.5 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!).
