The Bible is the greatest piece of literature ever written. Of course, that’s to be expected when God is involved. But, there are different ways that people tend to read the Bible. Some people are contemplative, chewing on the words of Scripture and allowing them to sink deep into the soil of their soul. Some are practical readers, mining it for “how-tos” and basic principles. Still others are communal readers, looking for ways in which the Bible can transform their lives in the context of local and global community. Whatever type of Bible reader you find yourself to be, the important thing is that you have chosen to see what the Bible has to say about this life and the next.
