This book strengthens next-level scripture engagement for Jesus followers, pushing us to: Move beyond fill-in-the-blank discipleship programs, Feel as competent about the Bible as we feel about our life work, and Get comfortable living with unanswered questions while we seek and serve God. Bible for Self-starters presents the Bible as it presents itself: an ancient Jewish story as relevant as today's news. It is a story you can know, understand, and apply. "On Scene" insight sections put you next to Moses, David, Peter, and many other Bible characters in the eyes-wide-open dilemma of making critical decisions as life unfolds. "Meditation" and "Deeper Still" questions Point out the Bible's thematic and theological hyperlinks that weave its stories into the whole story, Give permission to peek behind doors left ajar in the text, and Encourage you to explore uncomfortable implications and apply the Scripture to real life. As a human, feel awed and connected to God's story. Climb out of your safe, warm, bubble bath and dive into the deep ocean called the Bible.
