We have begun our quest to read the Bible Cover to Cover in 2008 at First Presbyterian Church of Elizabethton. Here is how it works:
Visit my new weblog just for this, Bible and Jive!
You will need a Bible. Preferably a New Revised Standard Version with Apocrypha. You can either buy a nice one with notes or get a cheap paperback. Make sure you get the one with the apocrypha.
We are also encouraging children and parents to read together the Family Story Bible. You will find a workbook with a schedule and quizzes for the entire year.
On the second and fourth Tuesdays, I will host a Bible Lunch Time, in which I will present background materials for the readings and we can discuss them. I will be preaching throughout the year from the texts assigned for that month.
I have done this at my two previous congregations with great success. This will be the first time that the on-line community can participate as well!
