An Explore subscription will provide you with four issues of our daily Bible reading notes (one sent every three months). Each issue contains three months of daily readings with ideas for prayer and application, to help you understand clearly the message & challenge of God's word.
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.
Each daily Explore study uses questions and explanatory comments to get you digging into the passage. And it features three mini-sections:
• Apply, helping you think about the difference God’s word will make to your life
• Pray Thru, encouraging you to speak to the God who’s been speaking to you
• Time Out, linking to a different part of the Bible, or raising an interesting thought to reflect on.
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.

Explore has daily readings that are:
• Reliable; clearly applied Bible teaching covering Old and New Testaments
• Manageable; a suggested 15 minutes per study with optional cross references for further reading
• Flexible; dated and numbered readings so you can go at your own pace
• Incisive; not a 'thought for the day' approach, but clear and careful teaching within the context of the whole of the Bible's revelation.
An inter-denominational team of contributors includes Tim Chester, Marcus Nodder, Tim Keller, Ray Ortlund Jr and Tim Thornborough.
Reading the Bible daily is an integral part of growing as Christians, and these notes are practical and insightful. Many in our congregation have been greatly blessed through their daily use.
A resource like Explore needs to be highly disseminated. Sundays are not enough, we need God's Word everyday. Explore satisfies that need.
A trustworthy and convenient tool for helping people to dig into the Scriptures themselves.
I have used various daily reading helps over the years, have recently finished Search the Scriptures, and chose Explore after looking around at what was available. I am really enjoying it and looking forward to each new episode! Explore is very well put together and very helpful in helping you to ask questions of the passage - what it means and what the Lord is saying through it. Highly recommended.
Explore is our daily reading guide, we read together each morning, (my husband and I) - it challenges us in our faith and practical living - is searching as to our long held views and hopefully will help us to be more like Jesus.
Great insight into God's word giving guidance, encouragement and challenge for the day ahead!
The Explore notes are such a great way to read the Bible each day. The authors are top quality and the notes have a good balance of questions to make you think, and explanatory notes. They engage your mind and your heart.
I've used many devotional material over the years, and the one I find myself coming back to (and hunting down - even after moving away from the UK!) is this. This is the most helpful resource for bible study - it breaks things down, makes you think, and apply. I find the length of the study + accompanying questions just right. Thank you for Explore - it has enriched my walk with our God. :)
My husband and I felt that we needed to re-vitalise our quiet time, which had become somewhat sporadic. We were eager to find something that would both stimulate us, and rejuvenate our love for spending time with the Lord. "Explore" has done just that, and we now look forward to digging further into the scriptures each day, discussing the points raised, particularly the application, and learning more about our wonderful creator. Thank you Explore! We initially ordered just three months to see how we got on, but will definitely be ordering an annual subscription from now on.
Thoughtful and inspiring. Made me rethink the scriptures in a new way
Easy to read layout, manageable daily studies. I've found it very encouraging.
If you need help or a plan to get into God's word daily, then look NO farther. Get a subscription right now and never me disappointed that you did because the contributors are excellent and the Holy Spirit is working through them as they prepare. Go ahead and take the challenge because it will only benefit you and your faith!
I've used the online version of explore for a year, but wanted to move to the paper based version. Good points - the main one is it makes me think about what God is saying through his word. It doesn't spoon feed me or give me some trite anecdote but makes me study and meditate. It offers a 'balanced diet' looking at the more unfamiliar books of the bible as well as the more familiar.
Bad points - not necessarily a bad point as I recognise the need to spend serious time in a book, but sometimes more variety in a month might be more helpful.
