For more than three decades, Through the Bible in One Year has brought greater insight into God’s Word to thousands of believers. Taking the reader completely through the Bible, book by book, this acclaimed learning tool spells out the progressive, step-by-step revelation of God’s will, shows how it has become manifest over the centuries, and explains how it affects believers’ lives today. With each study, the reader will learn…
- How to identify major themes in each book of the Bible
- How to memorize key Scriptures
- How to recognize God’s central messages
- How each book came into being and the role it plays in the Bible story
By embarking on this yearlong journey, believers will see the Bible unfold as a beautiful, divinely inspired true story, with a beginning, a middle, and an end yet to come. And by embracing its themes and truths, they will be better prepared to meet life’s daily challenges.
What is the time commitment?
To get the most out of the study, you should read the book of the Bible you are covering for the following meeting (or at least the suggested chapters), and then come to the meeting every week. Of course, if you miss a meeting here and there, or can’t get around to reading the chapter that week, don’t feel guilty. Participate to whatever extent you are able.
Are we really going to study the entire Bible in one year, as the study suggests?
No. At least, most likely no. We expect that the group will want to take breaks from time to time (e.g., during summer), so we expect that it might take longer. However, once the group is formed, it will be up to the group themselves how fast they wish to go.
Do I have to commit to the entire duration of the study?
Of course not. If life gets busy, we understand. We hope that you feel like you can start this study without the burden of a hard long-term commitment. That being said, the point of this study is to familiarize yourself with the whole Bible. We hope that as you begin this study you at least see a possibility of you sticking with the group for its duration.
Is there a cost?
No! The church will cover the cost of the study books. (However, if you feel led to donate the cost of the book back to the church [which there is no obligation to do], please let us know)
