Nothing is more important to church vitality—and personal spiritual growth—than a deep, sustained connection with the Bible.
Community Bible Experience combines three different approaches to reading the Bible:
1. Reading Big — Participants read the entire New Testament (or large portions of the Old Testament) in 8 weeks, by reading about 10 pages per day, 5 days a week. The Books of the Bible is formatted without chapters or verses to enable easy reading of larger passages in a single sitting.
2. Reading in Context — The Books of the Bible has re-ordered and re-combined many sections of the Bible back to the way it was originally written. This re-ordering allows the participants to experience the Bible in its historical context.
3. Reading Together — Whether in a small group or as a whole church, participants read the same passages, at the same time, and come together in community to discuss their thoughts, observations and ‘aha’ moments. As group members engage with the Scriptures they add deeper meaning and understanding for the entire group. Together, they grow closer to God, and to each other.
