Reading the Bible Aloud (Course)

Reading the Bible Aloud (Course)

Product Review (submitted on 12 September 2016):

I've written elsewhere that to qualify for reading the Bible out loud in front of church you must be…

1. One who trusts that the Bible is the authoritative, inspired Word of God. Only if you appreciate the author will you read with the attitude needed to pass on a message from God. We’re not reading shopping lists or Facebook posts. We’re communicating the very words of God.

2. One who reads the Bible regularly for your own instruction, edification, comfort, encouragement, or rebuke. We mustn’t cause one another to stumble in hypocrisy by asking them to do something in public that they don’t do in private. Let’s get our own house in order before calling on others to do the same.

3. One who understands the meaning and implications of the Scripture you are reading. This will require studying the passages of Scripture beforehand. If we don’t understand what we are reading, then we won’t communicate the message clearly or faithfully to others. We might need to look up a commentary or spend time with the preacher in advance to help us fully grasp the meaning. The key to good communication is understanding what you are saying.

4. One who prayerfully seeks to apply the message to your life. This will require us to read over the text well before reading in public so that we can meditate upon it, pray about it, and determine what difference it should make to our life.

This DVD and workbook course will help Bible readers to appreciate the significance of what they are reading and to build their skills in doing so. It will assist novice as well as experienced readers.I'd recommend working through this course with others, in groups or teams, so that you can encourage each other to read well.
