A (typically) brilliant blog article by Dr. Michael S. Heiser on why most churches don't teach much Bible content. For more from Dr. Heiser, be sure to visit his website at drmsh.com, although if you are the type who likes the lack of Bible content in church, his blogs may be a bit meaty for you!

A great article by the leader (at the time) of a church I attended while at university in South Africa (in the 1980s), with an equally great follow-up by one of the other members of that church at that time.

By Pastor Anton Bosch *
An excellent article by Pastor Anton Bosch, published here with his permission, that urges caution when reading books and articles that describe Satan and the demons in ways that the Bible does not support.

A couple of weeks ago, while advertising an upcoming Bible study to my local church, I referred to the old analogy of the word of God being like the ocean, with us never venturing deeper than paddling in the shallows. How accurate is this analogy? I believe that it gives most Christians far too much credit... most prefer to not even get their feet wet! Are we in the age predicted by Amos (Amos 8:11-12)? Are we staggering about searching for the word of the Lord and not finding it? Perhaps we need a sea-change (excuse the pun!)

Is there a "best practice" for reading the Bible?
I often tell people, especially those in the Bible study classes that I teach, that they should read a book of the Bible in one sitting (if short) or straight through, as they would a novel, and ignore the chapters and verses. Why is this important?
