What exactly is “Bible engagement?” Ministries around the world use this phrase—or similar phrases, like “Scripture engagement” or “biblical literacy”—to describe a focus on moving from simple knowledge about the Bible to application in one’s own life about what the Bible says. Biblical engagement is about actually engaging with the Scriptures, not just reading them. If you want to increase your biblical engagement and study the Bible in new ways this year, check out some of our favorite resources:
