You can understand the Bible.


And once you understand it, you will LOVE it! And the more you understand and love the Bible, the more you will come to know and love the God of the Bible. How to Love the Bible is a tool designed to help people just like you develop the skills necessary to access the most printed, read, quoted, and beloved book of all time.


In How to Love the Bible, you will discover a process that answers these questions and more:

  • The Bible is a big book, where do I even start?

  • I've studied the Bible for a while now, what techniques will take my understanding to the next level?

  • What's the best way to use commentaries, study Bibles, and other resources?

  • Which resources can I trust? 

  • How can I apply the Bible to my life?

From the books of the Law in the Old Testament to the New Testament letters and even Revelation, the tools and process you will encounter will equip you to understand and love the Bible and the God of the Bible in a deeper way.
