Bible Study

Part of the work of St A’s is to help people understand the Bible.

Here are suggestions

RETURN

Bible in One Year - will take you through the whole Bible in a Year with passages from Old and New Testaments each day. It also has some commentary on the passages from Rev Nicky Gumbel Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton. It is available via a Website (www.bibleinoneyear.org), a smartphone app, or even through a daily email sent straight to your inbox.



WordLive

Wordlive (www.wordlive.org) is created and maintained by Scripture Union and is a web based resource that had Bible readings, commentary on those readings in different formats, music, reflections and art all connected to the Bible. It provides the content in different ways too - it’s classic version does the basics, it’s Lectio version some more space and contemplation. It is also available in app form or via a daily email, and it also has space for sharing your own reflections via the community forums or social media. You can also listen to the complete day in audio form.

Pray as You Go

Pray as You Go (www.pray-as-you-go.org) brings together Music, a passage of scripture and a few questions in a 10-13 minute prayer session podcast each day. A new prayer session is produced each day of the week, with a single reflection for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon, or bible study, but a framework for your own prayer. Each session lasts between ten and thirteen minutes and combines music, scripture, and questions for reflection. It’s designed to help you to become more aware of God’ presence in your life, listen to and reflect on God’s word, and to grow in your relationship with God. As with the others, it is available in all formats including app and podcast.

For Everyone Series

Tom Wrights ‘For everyone’ series on the New Testament are among the best starters. They are well written, easy to read and are underpinned by great scholarship from one of the foremost theologians of our age. Each New Testament book of the bible has 1 or 2 books to go with it. There are increasingly some available for Old Testament books written by others like John Goldingay.

The Bible Speaks Today

You will find some more depth in the Bible Speaks Today Series with a lot of input from great Pastor-Teachers like John Stott. These dig in further to the text and always have useful practical applications too - much loved by preachers!
