Many millions of people have never read the Bible or have only heard about Bibe but don’t know where to start. There are printed book titles like “Quick Start Guide to the Bible”, “Beginner’s Bible”, and “Introduction to the Bible” but for people living a digital lifestyle, what is available online on the Internet where anyone anywhere can read a great introduction to the Bible? Here are several that we’ve found:

Introduction to the Bible (by Randy A. Brown at studiesinscripture.com) is a nice one-page read that introduces the Bible.

American Bible Society has produced this 7-day reading plan titled “Bible Introduction” that works with the Bible App (free.bible). This reading plan’s description: “The best-selling book of all time is also the least read. God’s Word will speak to you… if you take the time to listen.”
The Bible Project at jointhebibleproject.com goes about introducing the Bible one book at a time by producing 5-minute animated videos to present an overview of every book of the Bible. And also in the works are free videos and resources that explore the narrative of the Bible as one complete story. Watch this video overview about The Bible Project.
