TRUTH IS THE PURSUIT OF A LIFETIME
That’s why Explore the Bible is designed to consistently guide people of all ages through God’s Word in a manner that is:
enough for daily application
in individual and group settings
for the entire church
“SANCTIFY THEM BY THE TRUTH: YOUR WORD IS TRUTH.”
John 17:17 CSB
WHY SHOULD YOU EXPLORE THE BIBLE?
Anyone who has tried to sort out what is true for themselves often finds conflicting information in the world around them. This even applies to studying the Bible as it is not always easy to know that you are studying God’s Word in a manner that transforms, and not just informs. We all need a guide.
Explore the Bible is a team of pastors, small group leaders, church volunteers, and creatives—who also happen to be scholars, editors, writers, and designers. Our purpose is simple: to help the adults, students, and kids in your church understand God’s Word in their context, build meaningful routines around Scripture, and grow and serve together in spiritual community.
Know God's Truth
To know God’s Truth is to know that it is true and that every book matters. Explore the Bible is designed to illuminate the historical, cultural, and biblical context of Scripture. Book by book, we help adults, students, and kids understand and apply God’s Word in a manner that is repeatable, thorough, and age-appropriate.
Love God's Truth
When you return to God’s Word again and again, it doesn’t just inform you— it transforms you. Your heart. Your mind. Your affections. Explore the Bible believes that when you study the Word, you grow in your love of it. As that love grows, it builds a holy passion for the Word that grows for a lifetime.
Invest in God's Truth
To know and love God’s truth is to live it. Explore the Bible helps adults, students, and kids to build community around God’s Word. But more than that, it equips the whole church to carry God’s truth into their schools, workplaces, communities, and around the world in pursuit of those people who do not yet know it.
What does Explore the Bible believe about Scripture?
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of the Living God, and the primary method by which He speaks to us, reveals His character, tells us what He’s done for us, and shows us how we should, in turn, live.
Does Explore the Bible adhere to any theological standards?
Explore the Bible and its team of editors, scholars, and writers adhere to Lifeway’s doctrinal guidelines.
What does book-by-book Bible study mean?
In short, we study God’s Word one book at a time. The longer answer is that God’s Word is big—really big. In an effort to both study all 66 books of Scripture and provide a balanced view of all Scripture, Explore the Bible’s study plan is designed to cover a book from each genre of biblical literature in every study cycle.

What about kids? They can't spend 13 weeks in the Minor Prophets.
We agree! But we also believe that kids can still be taught every book of the Bible. Explore the Bible: Kids has developed a unique study plan for babies through older kids that covers all 66 books of the Bible at an appropriate depth and pace.
