Insights on the Bible

Spending time with Christ and His Word is the most important routine you can cultivate in life. Preferably, every day! Like Pastor Chuck Swindoll has said in Good Morning, Lord, "I’m a real believer in spending some time every day doing what’s important rather than doing what’s urgent. I’ve made that a priority in my life."

But it’s easy to let the urgent shove aside the important, isn’t it? That’s why creating a routine of reading God’s Word requires sustained effort, discipline, and . . . help! To that end, Pastor Chuck and Insight for Living Ministries is committed to helping you in this most important life-long journey. Consistently reading through the Bible is truly a journey that is worth beginning right now if you haven’t already.

And here are just the tools you need! We are updating this page, and each Bible book’s overview page, throughout 2024. Important tools for the journey include:
