For centuries, the Bible was called "the Good Book," a moral and religious text that guides us into a relationship with God and shows us the right way to live. Today, however, some people argue the Bible is outdated and harmful, with many Christians unaware of some of the odd and disturbing things the Bible says.

Whether you are a Christian, a doubter, or someone exploring the Bible for the first time, in this six-session video study bestselling author Dan Kimball guides you step-by-step in how to make sense of the most misunderstood, difficult, and disturbing Bible passages related to women, science, violence, slavery, and world religions. Filled with stories, visual illustrations, and memes reflecting popular cultural objections, How (Not) to Read the Bible is a lifeline for individuals who are confused or discouraged with questions about the Bible. This study can be done in youth groups, single's groups, small groups, Sunday classes, and by individuals.

Sessions include:

  • Never Read a Bible Verse
  • Stranger Things
  • Boys' Club Christianity
  • Jesus Riding a Dinosaur
  • My God Can Beat Up Your God
  • Rated NC-17

Designed for use with How (Not) to Read the Bible Study Guide plus Streaming Video (sold separately).
