Many Christians view reading the Bible as an intimidating endeavor; the sheer size of the text, written in a grammatical style that can be confusing at times, is enough to prevent them from making the attempt. This is typically rationalized with a question such as, “why should I read the Bible myself, when my Pastor reads it to us every Sunday?”
For others, the Bible is an archaic text possessing little relevance to the moral and ethical issues confronting Christians in our modern culture. In a culture embracing varying degrees of moral relativism, the absolute standards imposed by God can appear to be “out of sync” and intolerant.
In reality, nothing could be farther from the truth, but that fact goes unnoticed when time isn’t taken to become acquainted with the text.
There are numerous reasons to study the Bible regularly, the most obvious of which is God: it’s His message, His story, His commands, His promises, and His means by which Salvation becomes available to faithful Christians who believe in Him.
That’s only the beginning … you’ll discover the rest for yourself as you read through this book.
