Welcome and Introduction




Welcome to Bible Reading Project. This blog is designed to inspire new, creative, interactive and meditative ways of reading God's word. As followers of Jesus Christ we are blessed with the inherent drive and passion to spend our whole life studying one book: the Holy Bible. As fanatics of the Good Book, we should strive to memorize the Word, meditate on it and get it into our hearts.

This blog was partially inspired by Bible Design Blog (check the banner on the bottom right) and The Foolish Galatian, whose blogs feature Bible Reviews (regarding the physical form) as well as translation, reading and devotional content. Upon contemplating these blogs, I realized that my own interactions with God's word over the few years that I have been born again have become more and more unconventional and hands-on. I had begun thinking of my various reading strategies as Bible reading "projects." These projects usually included reading a certain translation and a certain edition of the Bible cover to cover with a distinct and deliberate strategy. I decided to organize and share my sundry ways of reading and interacting with God's word, along with the occasional spiritual insight and Bible and/or book review. Of course these methods are infinitesimally insignificant compared to the power of the Holy Spirit's revelation of the Word to each believer's heart. I simply desire to encourage new ways to involve the mind as well as the heart and spirit in my own digestion of the words of life. I hope this inspires others to spice up their reading (and writing) as they study the Bible with greater zeal, energy and creativity.
