Unlocking the Bible

October 27, 9:45 am - 3:00 pm



This training is for all Christians who would like to know more about the Bible.

If you have ever had questions about the Bible, been puzzled by things you’ve read, wondered why the Old Testament is so long and if it’s even true, or questioned if the Bible is still relevant to the challenges we face today – then this day is for you!

The Bible is a unique book.  Learning to read and understand the Bible well, like any worthwhile skill, takes some knowledge, effort, and practice, but the benefits are life-transforming.  If you’ve ever longed to be able to ‘dig deeper’ into God’s word, ‘Unlocking the Bible’ will equip you with some of the basic tools and skills you need. The Bible is a gift for ALL God’s people, not just professional scholars and theologians.




The training will cover:

  • An Introduction to the Bible
    How can we understand the Bible
  • The grand story of the Bible
    What is the ‘big story’ that runs through the bible?
  • The library of books in the Bible
    How do we navigate through the many books of the Bible; How do we understand the different types writing?
  • The Bible’s timeline and history
    When and how was it written?  How did we get the Bible in English?
  • Dealing with tough questions
    Why are there so many translations?  Is this God’s word or man’s word?  Can I really believe it?

The course will be given by Rev. Daniel Button of the Gloucestershire Theology School (formerly with Redcliffe College).  Dan has an engaging and easily accessible teaching style which makes it a joy to learn.
