How to ENJOY Reading the Bible

During September and October of 2017, the Youth Groups went through an extensive series titled "How to ENJOY Reading the Bible." This series went through things such as Translations, Genres, Historical Context/Background, Themes, and Interpretation Styles for the Bible. 

Churches have done a bad job at assuming anyone can pick up the Bible and instantly understand what it is saying. The majority of my teenagers expressed frustration with trying to read the Bible in some manner or other. I sought out to cut down the confusion and bring new light and understanding to their reading. In the process, I wrote a companion book (though, this is the abridged first draft) that is free for anyone to read through. Below, you'll find a link to the PDF of this book.
