Bible Reading Plan

Reading the Bible is one of the greatest ways to grow in your faith and understanding. Here are two websites that provide various plans to help you build the habit of reading God's Word daily. Whether you desire to read the entire Bible in a year, read the New Testament in a year, or simply get started with reading 5 minutes a day, these resources are a great tool to help you reach your goals.

Henry Blackaby's modern classic Experiencing God has sold millions of copies and has been translated into dozens of languages. The profound truths of that book have had a life-changing impact on countless individuals around the world.

Henry's two oldest grandsons, Mike and Daniel, along with Henry's son Tom, have teamed up to share those truths with a new generation of young people. In this book, the authors take the famous "7 Realities" of Experiencing God and re-package them to speak into the lives of teens and young adults.

Our Media-driven world puts enormous pressure on young Christians to abandon their faith in favour of a secular worldview. Writing to a teenage and young adult audience, brothers Mike and Daniel Blackaby explore three common responses this tension.

A person can "Cave-In," conforming to the world around them or abandoning their faith altogether. Another option is to become a "Cave Dweller" by seeking to insulate themselves away from secular influences and living a sheltered life. Finally, one can choose to be a "Collider" who holds on to their faith while also effectively engaging in the world around them.

This book is Mike and Daniel's case for becoming a "Collider." Packed with humourous stories, cultural engagement, and biblical wisdom, the Blackabys provide plenty of practical application for young people to face the inevitable collisions of life.

When you open this book you’ll find that you aren’t just reading; you are being remade, reoriented, and restored—captured not by a concept but by your Creator. Experiencing God has already impacted millions of people, and this revision written by Mike and Daniel Blackaby, grandsons of the original author, is ready to lead you again—or for the first time—into an experience with God. Carefully listening to His voice will anchor you in His plan and set you free to live it with boldness and freedom.

God has offered you a standing invitation to an intimate love relationship with Him—a relationship that will enable you to…

  • hear when God is speaking to you,
  • find out where God is working and join Him,
  • discover that God pursues a love relationship with you that is real and personal,
  • face crises of belief as you join God where He’s working, and 
  • experience God doing through you what only God can do.

This landmark volume returns with eight new sessions as well as many new and true stories from people who, through this book, have experienced God.
