where are some good places to start learning about the bible?

Somehow, by never talking about it, never reading it, never taking me to church, and ignoring it completely, except for grace every night before dinner, my parents feel they raise me to be Christian. Now I have a child of my own and want them to grow up with some sort of belief set. Not sure if Christianity is for me, but I need a place to start.

  • There are several things you can do. You can go to church, read a bible (they have ones that aren't that complicated) and if you have any friends or family that are religious you can talk to them. The important thing is to not get overwhelmed. Just take your time and pray as you go! Good luck girl!

  • I would start by reading the bible and getting an understanding for it and seeing how you accept it and look for a church. Set up meetings with pastures to ask about whatever you don't understand; thats what i did and it really helped.

  • I have a bible that has a 52 week bible study guide in it. Maybe you should look into getting on of those.

  • This may sound silly - but read childrens Bible stories - that will give you a foundation of the major stories in the Bible. I assume you have a Bible, I suggest you also get a Reference book (I use Thompson Chain Reference) - You'll want to be able to cross reference scripture and interpretations. Prayer and meditation is a major key - start with prayer, incorporate study, meditate on what you read and ask God to guide you. I promise, if you ask God to get to know Him better - He WILL open Himself up to you and you will be learning at a rate you can't imagine right now. Be encouraged - God loves the kind of desire you have = almost like a child's desire. He will bless you for your humble and sincere yearning for knowledge.

  • Veggie Tales is a great place to start. Its very simple, really fun, and most importantly they really follow the story from the Bible. We even have a Veggie Tales bible.

    Also, praying is an awesome way to get to know God. Ask Him what you should do in your every day life. He cares about all the little things.

    The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel is a good to read. You could try going to a local Christian book store and ask for some recommended books.

  • Whatever happen to opening the Bible and reading it? I mean that's possibly the best way to start...I know that sounds insane because omigosh how can I possible read that with 2137128738912 other things I am doing but really if you want to find your religion or learn the Bible, uh, reading it really seems the most logical.
