Michael Pahl has an excellent post (a really long one comprising several from his church website) on What is the Bible and how should we read it?
The post is simple (any intelligent Christian should have no trouble understanding what he says), profound (many readers will be able to continue to draw sustenance from the post over years of Bible reading) and explained with some powerful picture stories.
Any Christian who has not done “Bible college” should read it, and many who have may find things their teachers said make more sense after reading this post!
Have I burbled on enough to get you over there? If not I’ll need to repeat what a fine post this introduction to Bible introductions is!
