Sometimes reading the Bible is a delight. But if we're honest, many times reading the Bible feels like hard work, and we read out of a sense of obligation. And some of us have given up entirely.
Tim Chester reminds us that every time we read the Bible we hear the voice of God. The One who spoke and brought the universe into existence, whose voice thundered from Mount Sinai, and whose words healed the sick is the One who speaks to us today. So as we read the Bible we don't merely learn information about God--we hear his voice and encounter his presence.

The Bible is God's Word. The Bible teaches us how we should live. The Bible is something we should read every day. The Bible is something we should enjoy reading.
Most of us agree with these statements. At least in theory. But what's our reality? Sometimes reading the Bible is a delight. But if were honest, many times reading the Bible feels like hard work and we read out of a sense of obligation. Some of us have given up entirely.
Tim Chester reminds us that every time we read the Bible we hear the voice of God. The One who spoke and brought the universe into existence, whose voice thundered from Mount Sinai, and whose words healed the sick is who speaks to us today. So as we read the Bible we dont merely learn information about Godwe hear his voice and encounter his presence. Including a study guide for group use, this book helps us approach reading the Bible with an eager anticipation, expecting to hear Gods voice and meet him in his Word.

"This book is a theology of the Bible as the Word of God, but in a popular format. The Bible is inspired, not dead but living, and promotes Christ from beginning to end. Its also given for a purpose, is sufficient, reliable, and accessible. Mostly, it's relational, and not just a collection of historic documents, though it's also historic, of course. . . . This book is ideal as a primer for new believers wanting to get a bigger picture of the faith, as well as a Bible study tool for small groups. Chester's study guide at the close takes readers through his key points, substantiating them with Scripture."-- Gerald Wisz, Christian Market, January 2018
"Nonbelievers and new believers alike will find this resource valuable for personal Bible study and for fostering a deeper appreciation for the God who still speaks through his word."-- Kelley Mathews, Bible Study Magazine, January/February 2019
