Knowing Scripture I: Where We Meet With God

Sign up for the giveaway:

Most Christians with any long-term experience in walking with Christ can sympathize with the sentiment that reading the Bible can be difficult. There are times where we open Scripture and the pages become alive and we meet with God. Other times it can feel—as sad as it is to say—boring. How do we overcome the challenges to the life-long discipline of studying the Bible?

The best way to overcome any obstacle in understanding Scripture is to realize why it was written. The Bible is perfectly worded, constructed, and delivered to reveal the character of God to us. If we believe the Bible is the means that God has given us to get to know Him, it will become our most treasured possession and an object of pure delight.

To that end, we are beginning a new series of episode this week walking through R. C. Sproul’s book, Knowing Scripture. Unlike series we have done before, we won’t walk through this book with Dr. John Snyder and one guest. Instead, we are pulling different members of Christ Church New Albany because they each bring an interesting perspective and life experience to the chapters they will be discussing. For this first chapter, we have Lindsey Williams, who has been a member of Christ Church New Albany for 10 years.

We have another special aspect to this series. Each episode we will be giving away one resource that we have found helpful in studying Scripture. These will include Bibles, commentaries, and other writings. This week, we are giving away Matthew Henry’s One-Volume Commentary on the Bible. To sign up for the giveaway, click here:
