As a beginner, how do you start to read the Bible? And where should you start? And what version of the Bible should you use? All these questions, and more, covered here! This is the third part of the How to Live as a Christian video course. This is a course aimed at beginners or those new to faith about the basics of living a Christian life.
If you’re interested in Christianity and reading the Bible but you don’t know where to start, this would be good for you.
I mention this in the video, but if you’d like some help I have just started a Learn to read the Bible series. This is aimed at helping beginners to start reading the Bible for themselves. The idea is to help you learn to read the Bible for yourself. It’s not about giving you all the answers, but how to think so you can read the Bible on your own.
All the resources to help you get started reading the Bible are listed on this page.
The particular book I mentioned is Through the Bible Through the Year by John Stott.
This is a very helpful book which takes you through the whole Bible in a year. He gives you a short verse to read every day with a couple of paragraphs about it. I think it’s a brilliant resource for people new to the Bible. The late John Stott was a wonderful Bible teacher with a gift for communication.
