How this site works
The Bible contains the word of life. Yet it comes to us from people long long ago and far far away. Our reading therefore needs God’s help. To read without the Holy Spirit would be empty and dull. Yet distinguishing the divine Spirit from all the other spirits that push and pull us, not least our own, is not always easy. This site aims to help you read the Bible faithfully.
It offers short articles and videos, with the option to “comment” and so enter into discussion… Throughout the goal is to help you read the Bible “faithfully” (the first section tries to explain what I mean by that :)
If you register and login (links on the right) the site will keep track of you and you won’t have to give a name each time you want to ask a question or comment.
The text of the eleven articles lead you through a process that will “work” on any Bible passage to illuminate and explain. Just click “Articles” on the menu to get a list. To get to a particular article click its heading. At the end of each article you can ask questions or discuss the ideas using the “Leave a reply” box, I’ll read regularly and join in :)
In each of the eleven sections there will be one or more short (c.5mins) videos you can watch click “Video” on the menu.
This menu item leads to pages where you can contribute to discussing the “homework” tasks, and/or get my feedback on your ideas.
Beyond the Bible
[2017 update] I have begun adding a section “Beyond the Bible” which takes the material to the next stage. This section will not (at least at first) have videos and ‘homework’. It will start by explaining why we cannot avoid going “beyond the Bible” and will then seek to identify how we can do this “faithfully”.
