The B-I-B-L-E, yes that's the book for me

Welcome to my new blog. For those of you who stumbled upon it by chance and don't already know this, I am reading through the Bible and created this blog as a forum to discuss questions and insights I come up with during my readings (it also holds me accountable to finish the whole thing).

I've read the Bible all the way through before, but that was more to get through it than actually to learn something. This time I want to learn; more than that, I want to encounter God in the pages of this book. I used to read the Bible every day, but after a while that became more of a chore for me than a relationship thing, so I stopped doing that because I didn't want my relationship with God to be a chore. Now I feel like I've let the Bible become too low of a priority for me. Last Sunday my pastor really challenged both myself and my boyfriend Justin when he said that as Christians, we should always be in the process of reading the Bible, of memorizing a chapter, of meditating on a verse or passage. Justin and I decided to read through the whole Bible; he also made a blog to discuss his reading (you can find it here).

Please feel free to comment on this and future posts, as I will have several questions that I'll like feedback on.

This is awesome, Zoe. I haven't updated my blogspot in what seems like an eternity, but at least now I have an excuse to sign in.
