How is SIMPLY BIBLE different from other studies?

Imagine you’re reading the Bible and Jesus knocks on your door. Would He hand you a list of fill-in-the-blank questions? Probably not! He’d sit down and help you observe, understand, and apply His Word to your own life today. SIMPLY BIBLE is a guide to help you connect with God on a personal level through His Word.

The Why behind our mission

“Knowing and enjoying God through the Bible” sounds a little buzzwordy at first, but if you stop and think about what it means, you’ll understand why we’re so passionate about it. Do you read the Bible regularly? When you read it, do you find that you get to know God better? Does it make you enjoy God more?

Many Christians answer “no” to at least one of these questions, if not all three. And that leaves us feeling disconnected from God and vaguely unsatisfied with life. SIMPLY BIBLE is on a mission to help people learn how to connect with God through the Bible and watch their lives be transformed as a result.

When we really get a taste of God through His Word, we will always want more. All the things we crave—hope, joy, fulfillment, assurance, love—are waiting for us in the pages of the Bible. God’s word reveals His heart and speaks to us. SIMPLY BIBLE is the tool that can help kindle and revive our hearts and minds to hear what He has to say.

Simply you and God.

This is not a standard Bible study about what God has revealed to someone else, but what He wants to reveal to you. There is no author’s voice or opinions—just a daily framework that offers a fresh way to dig into Scripture by focusing on one book of the Bible, a few verses at a time.

SIMPLY BIBLE is not about checking Bible study off our to-do list, it’s about knowing God.

Made for relationships.

SIMPLY BIBLE originally was written to help foster relationships in church. With no video series or teaching curriculum, there is more time for real life connections with God and others.

Intentional guide.

SIMPLY BIBLE is built as a weekly study, with 4 days of studying and 1 day of reflection. This intentional design walks you through the entire book with confidence.

SIMPLY BIBLE is a flexible tool that can be personalized according to your needs—no two books will look the same!

SIMPLY BIBLE was originally written for women, but men are finding the format equally helpful for knowing and enjoying God. For churches that lean complementarian in their interpretation of Scripture, the SIMPLY BIBLE books do not teach the Bible, but rather, teach how to study the Bible and can be appropriate for men, women and mixed groups to grow in knowing and enjoying God.
