If you’d like to dive deeper into the practice of reading Scripture this way with someone else, here’s three excellent resources to help you!
David Helm’s One to One Bible Reading
In this book, David Helm argues for the practice of reading the Bible together and for a culture of such mentorship in the church, and gives practical teaching on how to do it. He explores several different ways to read through Bible passages with another believer. After you’ve gotten started with Gathering One2One, we highly recommend you use this book, especially as Helm offers other resources for reading different kinds of Biblical writings.
Several outline studies with Bible study questions from the back of Helm’s book can be downloaded here.
It’s not enough just to read the Bible; you also need to interpret it properly. The late Reformed theologian R.C. Sproul’s book, recently released in a new edition, is one of the best beginners’ introductions to the interpretation of the Bible.
The Word One-To-One
A series of booklets by Richard Borgonon and William Taylor that take two people through the Gospel of John as they meet one-to-one. Available in hard-copy twin-packs or as free PDF downloads here.
