What if People Actually Studied Their Bibles?

how to study the bible

Imagine what would happen if thousands of Christians actually did what we all sort of feel like we’re supposed to do, especially at the New Year: imagine that we all read the Bible.

If you’ve been part of our 30-day Bible study challenge since it began on January 1, congratulations! You’ve now made it halfway! If you haven’t, it’s not too late to sign up.

Over 10,000 people are digging into Matthew 4 as the new year dawns. If you thought melding Bible study and a little Logos training into a free course was a good idea, so did plenty of others.

One participant (C.P.) was so grateful that he put the Logos Pro Team on his prayer list (thanks!). Another (D.C.) is learning “things that [she] didn’t even know Logos could do,” and grasped precisely the purpose of the 30-day training course:

Already for day one I have learned two new things, and I like the idea of doing this along with practical Scripture usage. It makes me want to study each day, and now I can’t wait for the next lesson to show up. :)

Challenge your friends

The Internet and social media are full of causes, some célèbre and others not so much, some worthy and others nothing short of diabolical. We want as many people as possible to join a cause that cannot fail to be worthwhile: we want more and more people to read and study their Bibles.

And you can help make that happen. Help us help the church study Scripture. Challenge your friends so they can benefit from what you’ve enjoyed. Telling your friends is easy: just click the link below to issue the call.

Challenge your friends on Facebook.

Study in community

We want to help everyone who starts the course to finish it. That’s why we created the 30-Day Challenge Faithlife Group. Join the group to stay sharp and encourage your fellow Bible students. And if you get stuck in your Bible study, the Logos Pros will jump in and lend you a hand.


If you haven’t yet signed up for the challenge, do it now. Let’s commit to Bible study together—sign up below or learn more about the challenge.
