Bible Corner      
Weekly Commentary by Lois Tverberg, Ph.D.

The year 2002 was the "Year of the Bible" for many Christians who committed themselves to reading through it from beginning to end. At one church, Christ Memorial Reformed Church, in Holland, Michigan, several hundred people took part in the "Encountering God: Reading Thru His Word 2002" program, using the "Year of the Bible" book written by James E. Davidson, published by Bridge Resources, Louisville, KT.

The En-Gedi Resource Center provided resources here to support that program. We wrote a weekly commentary/devotional based on the text that was sent out by email, and now is available in the following index to an archive on this site. For more information about copyrights and usage, see below.
