Thank you for joining me for Bible in a Year!
The backstory behind this project was an incident that reminded me of long ago, when I was barely a teenager, and Granny (my Great Grandmother) was ill and her eyes had mostly left her for things like small print. She asked me to read the bible to her, and so I did.
That was a long time ago, but I started thinking about that one day and realized there are people who have no one to read to them.
So, here I am.
I’ll be with you through an awesome life milestone and it truly is a necessary step on your journey through becoming a more mature, knowledgeable Christian.
I hope you enjoy them.
These are FREE for you to download and use (please see the page on usage here if you have any questions). Download them to your mp3 player, burn them to CDs and play them in your car or while you cook dinner, even as you’re going to sleep. It’s easy to fit in time as most days are 15 minutes or less.
I am adding the read-along and links to other tools as well.
God Bless you on your journey.
The downloads are all available by date in the download section in the tool bar on the top of your screen.
About: As one final note, I felt it was important to mention this.
Most of us have been spoon fed parts of the old testament. Until we have read the bible from cover to cover, there are often things that we are not aware of. These things may surprise us or concern us, such as the recount of the story of Abraham’s daughter Dinah.
Nonbelievers, when dabbling and learning of that type of story, often react like a child tattling on an older sibling by rushing out to tell the world how clever they are and how unjust the old testament is.
Keep this in mind: The old testament was written by a very ancient people, with a very simplistic mindset. This is a record of their lives and what happened to them and how they reacted to it. Their relationship and perspective of God would have been according to what their minds understood and would relate to the lives they led. They were real people and they would have acted according to their times and their way of life. God’s relationship with them was on a very raw level that they could understand. God’s relationship to man adapted as mankind matured and we can see that as we move into the New Testament.
