Welcome to Immerse. Imagine if your whole church was regularly immersed in the Bible—reading at length without distractions and discovering God’s Story together. Immerse: The Bible Reading Experience is designed to take churches through the whole Bible together, using a new reading Bible format supported by fresh “book club” conversations. It’s not a Bible study. It’s ultimately an invitation to a vibrant, transformative relationship with God and with each other through his Word.
- 1. A Bible Made for Reading
- 2. Unmediated Discussions
- 3. Continuous Rhythm
1. Bible Made for Reading
Immerse: The Reading Bible is a six-volume Bible created with one goal in mind: to provide the best reading experience possible. The text is laid out in a beautiful single-column setting with chapters, verses, section headings, and footnotes removed, and with the content of each book displayed according to its literary genre.
This unique reading Bible will serve as the basis for your church’s journey through the Scriptures. Your church will use it to read through large portions of the Bible—the New Testament or the Torah, for example—in eight weeks.
2. Unmediated Discussions
As your church reads through this new Bible, they’re invited to talk about it in a new way. Once a week, community groups will engage in “book club” discussions, simply talking about what they’ve read in honest, unmediated conversations.
It’s intentionally uncomplicated. There are no right or wrong answers and no workbooks. Instead, your church will talk through questions like, “What stood out to you this week?” or “Was there anything confusing or troubling?”
3. Continuous Rhythm
This isn’t meant to be a one-time experience. Rather, Immerse enables your church to follow a regular communal Bible reading rhythm. By reading together twice a year, your church can read through all six volumes—the entire Bible—in three years . . .
. . . and then begin again. You can make regular immersion in the Scriptures a central piece of your church’s identity. Invite your church to get swept up in the story together so they can be transformed together.
