How Can the Bible Change Your Life?

“Why should I read the Bible?” Have you ever been asked that question? Have you ever asked that question yourself?

Doubted, attacked, and even dismissed as irrelevant, God’s Word faces all sorts of scrutiny. As Christians, though, we affirm that God speaks to us through His inspired Word, and our day-to-day interactions with friends and coworkers often present natural opportunities to stand up for the Bible’s truth.

Even though we consider ourselves “Bible people,” knowing how to respond to sincere questions about the nature of Scripture can be a challenge—especially if we aren’t in the habit of opening God’s Word for ourselves. This month’s featured resource, How the Bible Can Change Your Life, helps us prepare for such conversations. With a writing style that feels like sitting down to talk with a friend, author Josh Moody addresses ten of the most commonly asked questions about the Bible’s authority, relevance, interpretation, and more.

If you know someone who has been asking questions about the Bible, this is an ideal resource to share as you continue the conversation with complete confidence in His Word. Join Moody in saying, “Try the Bible on for size. Come to it in a spirit of humility, willing and open to have the Author authoritatively address you directly though His Word. As Jesus put it, ‘My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me’ (John 10:27).” How the Bible Can Change Your Life delivers an important reminder to every believer: God’s Word is powerful, and the practice of engaging with it grows our faith.
