The story of the Bible is the story of God communicating to mankind the knowledge of Himself and His grace and mercy. This process of communication from God to man is called revelation. Revelation is simply God revealing Himself to mankind. Because of man’s sin, he is unable to grasp spiritual realities. However, the understanding of spiritual truths is absolutely necessary if man is to know God personally, experience the forgiveness of sins, and have the hope of eternal life. These are the ultimate issues of life, and man must have the means to know the answers to them. – How Did We Get the Bible in English?

Part of being a Christian family is being in God’s Word.  It’s not enough to just show up on Sunday and listen to the preacher, but if we are to learn more about God—who He is and what He has done—we need to put in the time to actually read through His Word.

The same would be the case with studying any other topic.

New Bibles

As we started our recent study in John, we decided around Christmas time to purchase new Bibles for the kids and my wife.  When deciding which translation to buy, we were looking for something that would be easy for my kids to understand and something that would be accessible and informative for my wife.
