The Bible is our holy book, telling the story of God in a wonderful variety of ways. It contains history, poetry, proverbs, prophecy, letters and the story of Jesus told from four different perspectives. If you are having a bad day and want to shout at God, then take a look at the Psalms and you’ll see others have felt like that before.
God speaks to us through the Bible today and turning to it regularly through reading or hearing helps us to understand God better. Guided by the Holy Spirit, it can also help us to understand how God wants us to live in the world.
