I am eager and pleased to introduce a our very first Bible Book Club. Many of us at one time or another have been apart of a book club. Generally I love to read romance, drama, thriller or suspense novels but I think that Bible stories are just as interesting. Anyone who study their Bible knows that there are tons of amazing stories. The only problem is that over the years we may neglect or shy away from continual reading with the thought that “Oh, I’ve read that story before”. The actual fact of the matter is the more you grow spiritually the more understanding you receive each and every time you reread any Bible story.

Let’s be clear, I am not the type of person to read something just to say “Yea, I read that already.” But, I think that learning and reading collectively for a greater cause is a great idea. The goal of this Bible Book Club is for myself and others to stay engaged in the Bible & it’s related books. It makes it more interesting when you can talk and share your excitement for great stories and lessons that are learned in these books. I would love to see if others die laughing or become in total shock with the stories that we can totally relate to in modern day even though it happened thousands of years ago.

 

The first book of the BBC  (Bible Book Club) will be The Book of Jasher. I have heard of the great stories and tales in this amazing book. Maybe about a year or two ago I had actually started to read the book but I didn’t get that far for whatever reason. There is no better time to start than now to get my read on with my sistah’s. I look forward to sharing thoughts and pivotal moments throughout the book so that I will stay engaged and encouraged to finish.

 

This month’s reading The Book of Jasher will last for 30 days starting Sunday March 9th through Monday April 10th. There are 91 chapters in the book therefore the goal is to read at least 3 chapters a day. We will be scheduled to meet up and review the previous chapters every Sunday and Thursday. The first review day will start next Thursday covering chapters 1-12.

I hope that many of you will join along even if you have read this book already. Fellowship and reading collectively can definitely open your eyes to points you may have missed the first, second or third time around.

Also, we are taking suggestions for  next month’s Bible Book Club reading.

Y’all stay blessed.

    Hey Yail! I think this is a great idea for the sisters! I remember the first time I picked up The Book of Jasher, I literally couldn’t put it down! This was about 5 years ago. I was working AND still finished in less than 4 days! It’s a real page turner! I’d love to join you ladies but I am currently working on a 30 day work out plan along while trying to read the bible (including the book of Josephus) chronologically. I’m half way through my 30 day work out plan and just finished the OT a few months ago! (All Praises to Ahayah!!!!). I hope the best for ya’ll and will try to tune in to see how all is going! Shalawam everyone!

    Count me in for the BBC! This is right on time. I am just finishing the 66 books (it took me about 2 years, but I finally made it! – hang in there Dez!), so now I want to venture out into other books and the book of Jasher is one I haven’t read before. Let me know what time the Sunday/Thursday meetings will take place!

      Hey Sis,
      I am so glad you are joining in! I think I will post about the first 3 chapters tomorrow because it seems like there may be a lot of information just in those few chapters. So check back tomorrow and MH willing there will be something by the evening.

    I believe I will be apart of the BBC…I’am currently trying to read the bible from front to back and it has been challenging to say the least(this being my fourth attempt)but I feel that 3 chapters of Jasher are doable along with my other reading..now that I’m working I have found more time than ever to read…I catch a bus and my commute is rather lengthy so I take that time to read and it has been rather fulfilling.Praise the Most High for small favors lol…I look forward to sharing my discoveries of this word and also hearing all yall’s findings as well.. :)
