"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge." --Psalm 19:1-2
gettingtoknowmybible.com is  designed to encourage and guide anyone who wants to get to know the Bible better or for the first time. It is not for teaching, per se, but to help you find out for yourself what the Bible actually says.

The philosophy here is not a complex one.  The Bible has been preserved through the ages so that mankind can know about God.  The Bible CAN be understood.  The first step in gaining knowledge is to desire it.  The second step is to seek it.  Read the Bible.  Search its pages for knowledge.
There is no one here to tell you what you must believe, no one but the Scriptures themselves.  No one will come to your door, call you or even e-mail to see what you believe or ask you to join a church.  God has provided the Bible.  You have the intelligence He gave you to help you find out what the Bible really has to say to you.

How Does This Program Work?

Questions for each chapter of various books of the Bible will be featured here simply to assist  in reviewing the content of what has been read .  The first set of questions pertain to the book of Acts.The emphasis of these questions is content, not doctrine.  The questions are carefully worded, attempting to use only the information given in each of the verses cited in parenthesis at the end of each question.  This is to help you  investigate  the meaning of a passage for yourself. 
The Answers for each question are also available for checking what has been retained from reading.  Each chapter will have approximately 10 questions, but more if the chapter is very long.  All questions will be answered by choosing from multiple choice.  There are no essay questions.  Simply choose a chapter, preferably in sequence, read it in your own Bible or online, then answer the questions for that chapter.  Afterwords,  check the answer key provided to see how much you learned on your own.   *The text of the Bible is not recorded here, but a short list of websites where one can read it is.

Which Books of the Bible?
The first set of questions cover the entire book of the Acts, also known as the Acts of the Apostles.  If you read one chapter per day and answer the corresponding questions, you will be able to read and study the entire book of Acts in less than a month!  That would be a great beginning to understanding the Bible!  Questions over other books of the Bible will be added periodically, so be sure to return after you finish each book study.

A Little Help
For those new to studying the Bible, a page of Helps has been provided.  It contains useful information, such as a detailed description of what the Bible is, the usefulness of certain popular study tools, and how to cite Scripture references properly, etc.  *If you need a place to read the Bible online, go to the Helps page for a list of websites where several versions of the Bible can be read free of charge.  The Helps page also contains several suggestions to help you in getting the most out of your Bible study.
