Journey Through the Bible came about from our family worship times as we read the Bible together as a family.
As our children were growing up, our family made it our practice to read the Bible from cover to cover. We did this for many years. Some of our children learned to read by reading progressively more words as we read the Bible together.
We took turns reading, going around the circle. The little ones would repeat one or two words that we coached them to pronounce. Those who could read would read one to five verses and the best readers would read five verses each. We would read around four chapters per day, usually in the morning.
As each year passed, I kept adding to a document which contained introductory information about each book. I used this document to give my family background information for each book and to record the things I felt were important about it. By the time our children were adults, I had over 400 pages of notes. These notes documented the following kinds of information:
This book is a compilation of these notes as well as notes I collected as I studied these books on my own and as I preached through them over the years.
