Over the last three decades, millions of people around the world have been introduced to Christianity through Alpha, a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith pioneered by Nicky Gumbel. Through the simple format of a shared meal, a short talk and a group discussion on particular aspects of faith, many participants have encountered Jesus, accepted him as their saviour and become part of the church family.
As Alpha grew, so did the need to disciple new Christians in reading the Bible. Sensing this need, Nicky and Pippa Gumbel began to share their reflections on each passage of the NIV Bible in One Year with the church via email. The insightful daily commentary, which draws out applicable truths from each day’s New Testament, Old Testament and Psalms or Proverbs reading, quenched the thirst of many who were searching for an easy and accessible way to understand the Bible. The daily email became an app which now reaches millions of subscribers worldwide and is now available in print alongside the Bible passages for the first time. It’s perfect for anyone looking for extra guidance in applying the wisdom of the Bible to life in the twenty-first century.
Previous print editions of The Bible in One Year – A Commentary (in both hardback and paperback) contain Nicky’s commentary but don’t include the Bible passages.
The Bible in One Year is a popular and effective daily Bible reading programme which makes reading through the whole Bible easier than ever. It takes readers through the entirety of Scripture in one year. The psalms and proverbs begin each day; their concise and poetic nature makes them a good starting point for reflection. Then the vivid stories and inspiring teaching of the New Testament set the scene for understanding the Old Testament, placing both in the context of God's overarching plan for his people. You can begin reading the programme at any time of year.
