This book is a welcome gift for anyone who wants to grow in faithfulness and devotion. – Melody D. Knowles, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Old Testament, Virginia Theological Seminary

The Bible. 365 days. Your church. Yes, yours! Yes, the goal is to read the whole Bible in a year, but The Bible Year has divided the Scripture into 365 smaller, daily goals. You’ll encourage your flock to read a short selection from the Bible plus a concise devotional every day. They can do that – especially since The Bible Year has it all mapped out. Plus, weekly summaries of key themes and ideas will help readers to better digest and understand the weekly readings. So they’re not just reading verse after verse, they’re enriching their spiritual lives, developing deeper faith and forming closer connections to God. The Bible Year is also a wonderful way for small groups or even the entire church to grow closer to God and each other! Daily Bible goals start here! The Pastor’s Guide supports pastors in creating a churchwide program built around The Bible Year. It includes aids for sermon prep and ideas for integrating the program with church seasons and calendar year, as well as tips for gathering study groups, ideas for involving children and youth, and how you can use a shared journey through Scripture to bring your congregation together. The Bible Year product line includes a devotional for each church member, a leader guide for small group breakout sessions, and a pastor’s guide. Praise for The Bible Year Most of us honor the Bible, but few of us have actually read it…all of it! If we try, we often give up somewhere in Leviticus. The Bible Year challenges individuals, small groups and entire congregations to read the Bible – all of it! – in one year. It’s the resource we need to open our minds, stretch our imaginations, and inspire our hearts as the same Holy Spirit who inspired the written word enables it to become the living Word in our lives. Take the challenge! You’ll be glad you did! – James Harnish, Author of A Disciple’s Path When it comes to read-through-the-Bible-in-a-year programs, The Bible Year is a game changer. Packed with devotionals, discussion guides, and resources for pastors, this beautifully written book makes journeying through Scripture less daunting and more rewarding. It’s the perfect companion for those who wish to read through the Bible for the first time or those seek to go deeper in their study of Scripture together with others. – Ryan P. Bonfiglio, Director of the Candler Foundry and Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Candler Theological Seminary With a pastor’s devotion to God and the people he serves, deVega has structured a truly helpful guide for reading the Bible in the span of a year. The thoughtful format is well designed to encourage steady progress in reading, and provoke thoughtful reflection. Brief section summaries allow the reader to stay on top of the larger story line, and thoughtful questions and blank spaces support a meditative encounter. This book is a welcome gift for anyone who wants to grow in faithfulness and devotion. – Melody D. Knowles, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Old Testament, Virginia Theological Seminary The word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Again and again, we are reminded of our need for guidance and grounding, and especially in times of crisis and chaos. It turns out that a year of immersion in the stories of the Bible helps us to see our stories in a new light—there is provision, there is purpose, there is hope. This is how we make disciples for the transformation of the world. This is how the church is revived and renewed. I am deeply grateful to Magrey deVega and the people of Hyde Park. And I am deeply hopeful that many will rediscover this ancient path. – Bishop Ken Carter, Florida and Western North Carolina Conferences, The United Methodist Church and author, God Will Make a Way.
