Bible notes for adults

A sample back-issue of the Explore daily reading notes for evaluation purposes.

Part of the Explore series.

Also available

The sample issue provided is a back issue.

Many Christians find it difficult to regularly read the Bible. It can be quite a task to find one's way around such a large, diverse and ancient collection of writings. Some of the books in the Bible are historical, some are poetic, some are prophetic, some take the form of letters. The big question is - how does it all fit together?

The best way to find the answer is to adopt a pattern of daily Bible study and prayer. Not only does this give the reader more knowledge of the Bible, but more importantly it offers a chance to listen and hear God speaking personally to them through His strongest medium - The Word.

Explore gives you the opportunity to delve into areas of the Bible that have perhaps eluded you for years: the laws of Leviticus; the wisdom of Proverbs; the meaninglessness of Ecclesiastes; the pain and suffering of Job; the terrifying apocalyptic imagery of Revelation. Explore shows how the Old and New Testaments are linked and how God's promises of salvation for his people are fulfilled in Jesus Christ. It also challenges the reader every day to be more like Him.

“Great material”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

Having used my previous daily bible notes for years, I felt it was time for a change. I came across Explore in a christian bookshop by chance, so thought I'd give it a go. I found the questions about the readings very helpful and thought provoking. I also like the fact that there are several days/weeks of readings from the same book which gives more of an insight. So having found this "trial" study book useful I have now done a years subscription.


“Best Bible reading routine”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

These Bible notes are great. Realistic in the amount they cover each day, yet with good depth and points for reflection. God has used to get me into the best Bible reading routine I’ve ever had. 100% recommend.



(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

A well-balanced guide, with background information, apt comment, clear analysis, helpful cross-references and practical challenge.
I like the weekly rhythm of having Psalms or Proverbs on a Sunday, and appreciate having consecutive passages of the Bible, rather than themes.


“A blessing!”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

I have thoroughly appreciated Explore for some years now. Every morning I look forward to coming to God's word and reading your accompanying notes. I have found them to be such a blessing.


“A great daily touchstone with Bible prompts.”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

I look forward to my quiet time with Explore each day. It can lead to further Bible reading or just direct my thoughts and prayers.


“Helpful study notes.”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

These notes are mostly helpful in going deeper into the Bible passages and understanding what God is saying. Challenging at times!



(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

"Explore" helps me reach into the more difficult books of the Bible and to understand God's message for me today.


“A wonderful way to study God's word each day.”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

Explore provides an excellent way to get closer to God. The daily bible study is thought provoking and practical, with guidance on how we can apply the learnings in our life and where to focus our prayer. I highly recommend this resource.


“These daily readings are great!”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

I've been using these Bible readings for just over a year now, and really look forward to sitting down and working through them each day. I've been a Christian for many years, but I always get some fresh new insight each day from these notes. I like the balance of questions and commentary, and the way the readings are broken down into digestible chunks. I also like the community based around these readings on Facebook, a safe space to discuss the topics further and learn from, and share ideas with, others. I have learnt a great deal and look forward to continuing with them.


“Excellent Bible reading resource”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

I really enjoy using the Explore daily Bible reading notes. The notes are informative and challenging, and help to open up Bible passages with helpful and thought provoking explanations. They help you to dig deep into the Bible.
