One Author, One Story
Though the Bible compiles the voices and writings of many individuals, it is, in fact, one story—written by God. Through the historical accounts in the Old Testament to the miracles and parables recorded in the New Testament, from Genesis to Revelation, the Bible tells this one story.
The introduction of the ESV New Christian’s Bible says that the message of the Bible is that:
We are sinners, enslaved to selfishness. But God sent his Son to take the punishment we deserve so that we can be restored to a right relationship with our Creator.
Start the One-Month Reading Plan
Over the course of a month, follow along with a reading plan adapted from the ESV New Christian’s Bible comprised of twenty-eight readings, offering a selection of passages that follow the broad narrative of Scripture. This plan stretches from Genesis to Revelation, making important stops along the way.
