Q: What would you say to someone who has never ventured to read the Bible? What would you tell them to read first and why?
A: It very much depends who they were. For some, the great poetry of the Psalms and Prophets would speak powerfully; for others, that would be incomprehensible. For some, the wonderful vision of Daniel or Revelation -- and again, for others that would be hopeless. For most, I think, Genesis and the Gospels are great places to start. Huge stories which raise a thousand questions and gradually, gradually, lead you to the unexpected answers.
