The Bible is the primary way that God speaks to us and makes himself known to us. The thought of reading the Bible can be a little bit scary but the good news is that it has never been easier to read the Bible and get resources to help you understand it.
We'd recommend that you read the Bible every day, and that you use a plan to help you read it in an ordered way. It's also helpful to have something to take notes on while you read it to write down any questions you may have and record anything that you hear God say.
If you want to try reading the Bible for the first time, a really good place to start is the book of Mark which tells the story of Jesus' life. Alternatively, have a look at the free resources available below.
bible in one year
The Bible in One Year is a plan that helps you to read the whole Bible. Each day you'll read a bit of the Old Testament, a bit of the New Testament, a Psalm or Proverb.
Along with the Bible reading there is a commentary (available to read or listen to) by Nicky & Pippa Gumbel that explains the readings.
THE BIBLE PROJECT
The Bible Project is a collection of 5 min videos, each of which give an overview of an entire book or key theme within the Bible.
Watching one of these before reading a book of the Bible is really helpful for understanding why the book was written and some of the background information that is helpful to know when reading it.
