If you are new to the Bible, it certainly can be an intimidating effort to read and understand such a large volume of information. There are many different writing styles, strange names, unfamiliar figures and events from history, stories that are hard to relate to, customs and practices that are so different from our modern times. In short, it is an enormous undertaking.
To make this process some what easier for you, we recommend the Collegeville Bible Commentary. The Collegeville Bible commentary offers verse by verse explanations of Bible passages. We hope you will take advantage of this resource, a perfect compliment to Bible readings.
