Yet, we often approach the Bible that way, reading the parts we are comfortable with, while avoiding the more difficult books. I used to do that, too, until I realized I wasn't getting the whole story.
That's why I created the Anatomy of the Bible study series--to help you get the whole picture.
One thing I have discovered over the years is that we avoid what we don't understand. And some parts of the Bible can be really confusing.
After many years of both formal and informal study, I have learned how to approach the Bible from its chronological, historical, and cultural context.
The Bible is many books that tell one story, and without that whole context, we miss out on valuable meaning for our lives.
The good news is that you CAN grow your understanding of ALL of the Bible.
Anatomy of the Bible is a 10-session study series designed to help you understand how all the Bible fits together through history, culture, and time.
