Do Christians really know the Bible as well as we should? If we’re being honest, reading an ancient set of documents from a culture we don’t understand can be quite intimidating. With that being the case, how exactly should Christians go about getting familiar with the Bible without feeling overwhelmed and discouraged?
With only 19% of church goers consistently reading the Bible on a daily basis, it’s no wonder why so many Christians struggle with biblical literacy. Desiring to counteract these low numbers, Pastor Skip Heitzig of Calvary Church in Albuquerque, NM was moved to write, ‘The Bible from 30,000 Feet: Soaring Through the Scriptures in One Year from Genesis to Revelation‘. In this week’s podcast episode, Frank and Skip discuss why the book has been so successful and how it’s giving Christians the confidence to read the entire Bible in a short timeframe–365 days! They answer questions like:
- What is the difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant?
- Why are there so many symbols and metaphors in the Bible?
- Why did Jesus quote from the book of Deuteronomy so often?
- If Christians aren’t subject to the Old Testament law, can we live how ever we want?
- What are some practical ways that Christians can incorporate the Bible into a daily routine?
No matter how often you read the Scriptures, there’s always more to learn, so don’t feel intimidated! If you see Bible study as a daunting task, allow Skip to walk with you through all 66 books within the next year. Knowing God and making Him known means spending sufficient time with His Word, and that’s exactly what this book will help you to accomplish.
