When I first started reading the Bible my sole focus was to read the entire Bible in a year. That’s not uncommon. In fact, I bet some of you are doing so as a New Year’s resolution. Once you read the Bible and familiarized yourself with the big picture, studying individual books of the Bible can be rewarding.
Why do book studies?
Each book of the Bible was given by God for a unique purpose. Think of the Bible as not just one book but a whole library telling God’s story. Every book gives you insight into core themes and God’s identity.
