Research shows that the life of a person who engages with the Bible at least four times a week is significantly different from the life of a person who doesn’t. Bible reading and engagement is critical to our spiritual growth.
But Bible reading is on the decline, with studies showing that 58% of churchgoers don’t read the Bible or only read it a few times a year, and among Bible readers, only 11% have read all of it. And in 2020, Bible readership declined dramatically due to the pandemic—the latest Barna/American Bible Society study on Bible engagement shows that during the pandemic, daily Bible readership dropped from 14% to 9%.
Accessibility to the Word of God doesn’t seem to be the problem—we have unprecedented access to the Bible as well as countless Bible studies and other resources. So how can we grow spiritually if we don’t engage with Scripture?
What if there was an event that would make the Bible come alive in a fun and creative way that would inspire people to read it every day?
At Walk Thru the Bible, we help people everywhere live God’s Word. Through our otLIVE event, we unpack the big-picture story of the Bible, tell the larger narrative of the Bible, and connect the dots of the Old Testament. Unforgettable, fun, interactive, energetic, biblical, solid—these are just a few of the words people use to describe Walk Thru the Bible’s unforgettable Bible experience.
And after the event, more than 75% of the attendees commit to reading the Bible every day. When people engage with Scripture, lives are changed, families are healed, communities are impacted. Because the Bible changes everything!
