The Bible Year is a journey through scripture in 365 days. January 1 is coming soon. Accept this invitation to come closer to God and God’s Word.
Not the type to sit down and read the entire Bible? Yes, the goal is to read the whole Bible in a year, but think about it in terms of smaller, daily goals. Think about a commitment to read a short selection from the Bible plus a concise devotional every day. You can do that – especially since The Bible Year has it all mapped out for you day by day.
Plus, you’ll also get summaries of key themes and ideas to help you better digest and understand your readings. So you’re not just reading verse after verse, you’re enriching your spiritual life, developing a deeper faith, and forming a closer connection to God and to each other.
The Bible Year is also a wonderful way for individuals or small groups to grow closer to God while providing a common thread that will promote new and deeper friendships among members.
Daily goals start here! There is a devotional for each individual. A leader guide for use in small group settings, and a pastor’s guide. Pastors can find Sermon Guides for The Bible Year here. There are also videos available through Amplify Media.
Magrey R. deVega is the creator of the series. He is the Senior Pastor at Hyde Park United Methodist Church in Tampa, FL. Meet the author in this short video.
The Rev. James Harnish, retired pastor and author notes, “Most of us honor the Bible, but few of us have actually read it…all of it! If we try, we often give up somewhere in Leviticus. The Bible Year challenges individuals, small groups, and entire congregations to read the Bible – all of it – in one year. It’s the resource we need to open our minds, stretch our imaginations, and inspire our hearts as the same Holy Spirit who inspired the written word enables it to become the living Word in our lives. Take the challenge! You’ll be glad you did!”
