I hope I have sparked your interest in knowing more about the Bible. You are holding a very special book in your hands when you hold your Bible for it has messages for the heart as well as the mind. And whether you are a first-time reader of God’s Word (I just gave you one answer) or a life-long student, you should gain insights into the Bible for the very best perspective as to how to live your life.

Through studying God’s Word, you will discover that God’s interaction with people in the Bible relates to you—to your past, your
present, and your future.
Ask, search, and find for the Bible is “the treasure map that leads us to God’s highest treasure.” (Max Lucado) The purpose of your study is to shine a light on the map so that you can follow it clearly, and be the best person you can be. The plus: You will be HEAVEN BOUND!
