Let’s face it, the Bible is a BIG book and there is always. more. to. learn!
While this is actually a GOOD thing because it means we’ll never outgrow the Bible, sometimes knowing how and where to get started can be a real obstacle.
The easiest way to overcome this obstacle is to KISS- Keep It Simple, Sweetie. If you were to join a sports team, the coach would spend most of the practice time each day teaching you the basics and drilling you on them until they were second nature. So it is with Bible study- learning a few basic strategies are all you need to start digging into God’s word in meaningful ways.
To keep it simple, give you a plan, and show you the ropes, we recommend these two workshops inside the Explore God’s Word collection for you to start with:
