Though I was raised in a Christian home and attended private Christian college, I don’t know that I’ve ever just sat down and read the Bible.
I read along in church: Our sermons tended to be absolutely filled with references to the Bible, and we were all to follow along with our own.
In college, I took several courses on theology and the Bible, including Old Testament Survey and New Testament Survey. I was supposed to read the Bible for that class; I skimmed.
And so now, I’ve decided to sit down and read — in fact, examine — one book of the Bible. I’ve chosen the Gospel of Luke.
