Webteam: May 2018
Bible Month is an opportunity for churches and circuits to spend 30 days focused on a single biblical book. In 2018, Bible Month will focus on the book of Jonah.
Many Christians struggle to find time to read the Bible. Some find it difficult to know where to start, while others find it hard to interpret what they read. Surveys show that biblical literacy — understanding what the Bible says and how best to read it — is declining within the Church, as well as in wider society. And yet God continues to speak through the Bible in a life-giving way, and reading the Bible remains a 'means of grace' through which God works. In recognition of its importance, the Methodist Conference has repeatedly called the wider Church to engage Scripture more deeply. Learning to engage with the Bible regularly is a task for all Christians.
The four weeks are subtitled as follows:
