Product Description

The Bible is the most extraordinary book you’ll ever read; it’s how God speaks directly to us and how his Spirit works to change us. But it can seem intimidating, confusing, and even a little bit boring.

In this book, Gary Millar shows you that the skills you need to read the Bible are not beyond your grasp. In a warm, approachable style, he gives you the tools to read and understand the Bible for yourself, helping you move from confusion to confidence as you enjoy refreshment in God’s word.

Whether you are a new believer and don’t know where to start or you have been a Christian for a while but have never got into a regular habit of Bible reading, this book will equip you to get going. As you read the Bible, you will hear God speak, and you will be changed to be more like Jesus.

Editorial Reviews

There is, of course, no better way to learn to read the Bible for yourself than to read it for yourself. Yet we all need help with learning to read—and all the more with the most important book in history and the very words of God himself. Gary Millar is a gifted guide for this most important of pursuits. Learning to read the Bible will not only give you answers; it will give you life—the very kind of life in your soul you’ve been longing for. -- David Mathis (Executive Editor at desiringGod.org and author of Habits of Grace)

Whether you’re a new believer in Christ or a grizzled veteran of Christianity, this book will not only give you the tools to understand and apply the remarkable truths found in the Bible but also inspire you as you encounter the astonishing beauty of God found in his very words. -- Julius J. Kim (President, The Gospel Coalition)

I recently provided new believers with study Bibles filled with notes, maps, quotes, and explanations. Instead of finding it helpful, they were bewildered. If only I could have given them a copy of this excellent book. From now on I will definitely recommend that they read this first. -- Alistair Begg (Bible Teacher, Truth For Life; Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Cleveland; Author, Pray Big and A Christian Manifesto)

If you want to be discipled by the voice of God more than the voice of this world, this book will help you greatly. -- Richard Chin (National Director, Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students, Sydney, Australia)

A simple, clear and immensely helpful guide to getting off and running with reading the world’s best-selling book of all time! -- Denesh Divyanathan (Founding Pastor of The Crossing Church (Singapore) & President of Project Timothy (Singapore).)

Read This First gives readers simple steps to understanding God’s word and gets their noses into Scripture by getting them to answer questions from the Bible. It works brilliantly for both mature Christians and those who are new to Christian things. -- Jane Tooher (Director of the Priscilla and Aquila Centre, Moore Theological College)

Gary Millar has a knack for taking complicated issues and making them clear. More and more people in our churches and in society are unfamiliar with the Bible. Here we find a wonderfully accessible book on how to interpret and understand the Bible. Behind the simplicity of this book is a deep and profound wisdom. An ideal resource for personal study, for small groups, and for continuing Christian education. -- Thomas R. Schreiner (Southern Baptist Theological Seminary)

What could be more important than learning how to read, understand, and apply God’s word? Read This First is an accessible, encouraging, and jam-packed primer to help you read the Bible. This book answers so many questions­—even questions you didn’t know you had! -- Gloria Furman (Author of Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full and The Pastor's Wife)

This is a wonderful book—fresh, engaging, accessible, practical and rooted in good scholarship. I particularly appreciate the superbly clear examples from Bible passages, and the way Gary Millar makes some pretty meaty thinking come across as not nearly so difficult after all. Thank you so much, Gary! I shall be recommending this with enthusiasm. -- Christopher Ash (Writer in Residence, Tyndale House, Cambridge.)
