Community Bible Experience has everything you need to read big: print and digital editions of The Books of the Bible for each participant, daily videos, resources for kids and families, and tools to help you plan and promote your campaign.
The Books of the Bible: print + digital
Each participant gets a print copy of The Books of the Bible: New Testament, a revolutionary presentation of Scripture designed to help you read whole books. In addition, participants can download an eBook for mobile devices and an mp3 audio version with one track for each day of the campaign. They can also sign up to have each day’s reading (text and audio) delivered by email.
Participants can register to receive daily campaign videos by email. There’s a 30- to 60-second video providing some helpful context for each day’s reading, as well as a 2- to 3-minute video introduction to each book or section of books.
Resources for kids and families
Kids can participate in the New Testament reading campaign by listening to The Books of the Bible: Kids’ Audio Version. (Note: Not included with other campaigns.) Each 10- to 15-minute episode follows the Community Bible Experience reading plan. The kids’ version includes a downloadable parent’s guide, with tips for engaging kids in the New Testament, along with a full transcript for those who want to read each day’s story to their kids.
Participants get a downloadable reader’s guide with the 40-day reading plan, tips for reading, advice for making the most of small group gatherings, and more.
Leaders can download a group leader’s guide with tips for guiding a book club-style conversation, week-by-week discussion guides with notes on what to watch for in each week’s reading, and more.
