I Want to Read the Bible, but Where Do I Start?

The Bible can seem like an intimidating book, but it may be easier to understand than you think. Making Sense of the Bible will teach you how to enjoy studying it on your own.

David Whitehead has been helping people engage with the Bible for years, including through his popular website, The Daily Bible Verse. The Bible is an incredible gift from God to you, and this brief "user's manual" will teach you how to get the most out of it. Perfect for individual or group use, this book answers basic questions like how to know which Bible version is right for you, and from there introduces you to its stories, people, and major themes.

In the end, reading the Bible isn't just about knowledge, it's about connecting with the God who speaks through His Word. Let this engaging book help you hear what He wants to tell you.


This book is absolutely terrific! For anyone wanting a bright and clear primer on the Bible, this is what you've been waiting for. I unreservedly recommend it to anyone with questions about the most important book in history. I'm deeply grateful to my friend David Whitehead for this excellent work.
