DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, THE CHURCH IS CLOSED AND THE STAFF IS WORKING REMOTELY.

AT MUNGER WE TEACH PEOPLE THE BIBLE.
WHY?

We believe that the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus.

And we believe that there is no better way to be filled with the love, wisdom, and joy of Christ than to read, learn, study, memorize, and savor the Bible.

In the words of Psalm 1, the person who “meditates day and night” on God’s law will be

like a tree

planted by streams of water

that yields its fruit in its season,

and its leaf does not wither.

In all that that person does, he or she prospers.

WHICH BIBLE TRANSLATION SHOULD I READ?

The short answer: it doesn’t really matter.

The longer answer: every translation is an interpretation, and every English translation of the Bible has strengths and weaknesses.

For example, the NIV translation is slightly more readable and colloquial as compared to the ESV translation, which is more rhythmic and faithful to the older English cadences—it sounds more “biblical” at times. Which is better? It depends on what you are wanting.

A Bible with cross-references (often called “a reference Bible”) is essential, as it will allow you to see the connections between biblical passages.

Some people find a study Bible (one which includes notes and commentary from various scholars) to be helpful—just remember that the notes are still someone’s interpretation.

Our recommendation is the Cambridge ESV Clarion Reference Black Goatskin Bible.

The ESV Study Bible is crammed full with explanatory notes, and comes in many different formats and bindings, as does the NIV Study Bible.

Visit Logos Books in Person!

Although the links above are Amazon links, we highly encourage Mungarians to check out which Bibles they like best by visiting Logos Books, an excellent, family-run Christian bookstore in Snider Plaza, University Park. They carries dozens of Bibles in stock, and only when you really open up a Bible and hold it in your hand can you tell if it’s the right fit for you.

In summary, pick whatever Bible you’ll be most likely to read, and be sure to compare and contrast bindings and sizes and formats, etc.


MUNGER AND THE BIBLE

We have seen growth and blessing since we started making the reading of scripture a priority in our church.

We first started reading the Bible together in 2017, when we distributed and then read through the One Year Bible.

In 2018, we read through the Bible again, using the Bible Project one year plan and app.

In 2019, we slowly read through the four Gospels.

In 2020, we read through Genesis, the Psalms, Ezra-Nehemiah, and Revelation.

In 2021, we are focusing on Paul and his letters.

In 2022, we have read through Ephesians, Mark, John, James, Luke, Jonah, and are currently reading a series we call King of Kings.
