“Read the Bible for Life aims to improve biblical literacy in the culture and the church by simultaneously moving readers toward greater skill in reading the Bible well and toward a deeper commitment to applying Scripture to everyday life.”
The Read the Bible for Life initiative seeks to accomplish two things foundationally:
“1. We want to help people learn to read the parts of Scripture well, so they know how to engage a psalm, or an Old Testament story, or a parable, applying the word in specific, life-changing ways. 2. We want to help people understand how the grand story of the Bible fits together, so they can understand their place in that grand story that God has written on the world.”
On the initiative’s website you’ll find videos, podcasts, blog posts, as well as details of the book “Read the Bible for Life” by George Guthrie (Union University).
