Discover five innovative ways to read the Bible

Do you feel guilty that you don't read your Bible every day? When you do sit down to study the Bible, do you find yourself easily distracted and feeling like you're missing something? Are you looking to connect with God's Word in a fresh way that makes you look forward to your daily time in Scripture? If so, The Abide Bible Course is for you!

In this study, a professor and a pastor—Dr. Phil Collins and Randy Frazee—will walk you through five innovative practices that will take you beyond just reading and help you deeply engage with Scripture in a way that fits your unique personality and learning style. In each session, they will explain the practice and walk you through each one—with practical examples—so you can try it out for the upcoming week. These practices include:

  • Praying Scripture: pray with the words of Scripture instead of your own
  • Engage Through Art: looking at works of art to help you see a passage in a new way
  • Journal: writing out your thoughts and feelings on a passage to give you greater clarity
  • Picture It: putting yourself into the stories of the Bible to experience them firsthand
  • Contemplate: deeply reflecting and praying through a passage in God's Word
  • Jesus instructed his followers to "abide" in him so they could lead fruitful lives (see John 15:4). The Abide Bible Course will equip you to establish a daily, lifelong habit of abiding in God's Word so you can hear his voice.

    Sessions include:

  • Abide in Christ (19:00)
  • Praying Scripture (20:00)
  • Engage Through Art (18:00)
  • Journal (19:30)
  • Picture It (20:00)
  • Contemplate (17:00)
  • Coordinating study guide available separately.

    The Audio Bible Studies series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, this audio Bible study includes high-quality, live audio sessions from the author that cover important Bible-based topics. These sessions will reflect the ambiance of the unique recording locations, immersing the listener into the teaching. While not required for the audio experience, these studies are designed to partner with the coordinating study guide, sold separately.
