Read Your Bible

“…advanced theological degrees do not guarantee biblical knowledge. Indeed, we have known seminary graduates who have never once read the Bible through! At best, theological education can acquaint us with the language, the nuances of theology, the general arguments of the books, and pastoral methodology. But it cannot insure that we actually know our Bible. Knowledge of the Bible begins with and is fed by reading God’s Word daily.”

Kent Hughes, Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome, (Tyndale House: 1987), 38-39.

Two recommended resources for reading your whole Bible:

  1. Gerard Chrispin, The Bible Panorama, (Day One: 2005).
  2. D. A. Carson, For the Love of God, volume one and volume two, (Crossway: 1998 and 1999 respectively).
