Whether you are doing a Bible study based on a book of the Bible, a person in the Bible, or reading through the whole thing, we all could use some guidance. I’ve gone back over the last three years of posts and hand-picked the seven posts I believe will be the most helpful.
Below I have simply listed them with a brief overview and a link to the full post. You might want to bookmark this post so you’ve got my “Top 7” handy. You can also share this post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or LinkedIn via the buttons at the top – and bottom – of this post. (Sharing makes me happy.)

You might think reading the entire Bible is impossible or takes forever. (Not true.) When I started reading the entire Bible to start off every year, I discovered some benefits I didn’t expect. The benefits are in our head, our heart, and in our relationship with the Author.
Almost everyone I know struggles with the “wandering mind” when they sit down to read the Bible. If this describes you, this is for you. It gives the overview of my free, 5-part course to help you stay focused when you read God’s Word.
If you’re planning on reading through the entire Bible (or even just the New Testament) there are probably books you’re not as familiar with. Getting an overview can be super helpful. This post includes a 2-minute video showing you how to find a book summary on BibleHub.
This gives you an overview of my 8-session video course – Relational Bible Study™. If you – or your church – would like a test drive, shoot me an email via the Contact Page at the top of my site and I’ll give you access to Session 1.
While I highly recommend you use a physical Bible when you’re studying, I do find some apps and websites extremely helpful. The “ReadScripture” app is one of those. The reading plan and video overviews of each book (and some major themes) are superb.
This is the first post in a 3-part series covering the what, why, and how of getting context when reading the Bible. Very helpful…and not as hard as you might think.
Often when you’re reading the Bible you notice that a word or phrase is repeated multiple times. And sometimes you come across a word you simply don’t understand. The video on this post will show you exactly how to do a word study (and why it’s a good idea).
