I began a series in our Sunday evening service February 15 about the Bible. In the opening message, I identified the following questions we will address:
Has God spoken?
What has He said?
Do we have His Word?
If so, in what form?
How do we know?
I also outlined the subjects we would cover concerning God’s Word including:
How it came from God: Revelation, Inspiration, Canonization
How it came to us: Preservation, Transmission, Translation
How it profits us: Illumination, Interpretation, Application
We covered the first step, Revelation, in the first two messages. You can download the audio and outlines of these messages here.
I asked last night for your help in suggesting a title for this series. I welcome your input. Click on Comments below and give me your ideas. I will take them into consideration and hopefully together we can produce a good title.
Every idea will be considered. Obviously I can’t use every one, and may end up with a combination of several of the ideas that are submitted. I hope that you will be blessed and will benefit from thinking about and discussing the topics above in order to share your ideas. Thank you!

Just so that you see results of your quest for a title, I am responding to let you know that I am thinking about it. So far I have only come up with silly sounding acronyms using the word Bible. For example: Boldly Illuminated Believable Life Expectations. Other ideas include the well used: The Bible: What does it mean today? Based on the Share Jesus Without Fear video, you could also call it Big Boomer Speaks.
Ideas for title:
“How God speaks.”
“The Precious Words of God.”
“The Bible: Where there is no revelation the people perish.”
Thanks for the ideas – keep em coming!
