EDUCATION: Bible News is now available!

My congregation had the wonderful opportunity to read the Bible in chronological order this past year and many succeeded. In order to make things less confusing for them I created the BIBLE NEWS for all 66 books. There is so much information that we don't have when we start reading the Bible; especially the Old Testament. There are all kinds of commonly used terms that we aren't familiar with, ancient Hebrew poetry (what's up with that?), themes that span the whole Bible that we should be looking for, common misconceptions, and situations with the prophets that we don't know. This information definitely deepens our understanding as we read. Researching and writing them was a great blessing to me and I hope they are to all who use them as well. Interested?

  1. Our congregation used these. The feedback was terrific. Getting the people to read the whole Bible in a year was a challenge. For those who did it, according to the feedback, the blessing and benefit was multiplied by reading the Bible news sheet that went with each book (or with the Bible Overview sheet, the Intertestamental Period sheet, and The 4 Gospels sheet). People outside the congregation who caught sight of it asked to be on the monthly mailing list to receive the sheets for the books we were reading that month. As a pastor, I highly recommend this resource.
