Walk with the Word is a Bible study tool emphasizing personal application of God's Word in your life. Beginning with the individual, this can be applied to every level and size of organization from small groups, to teaching ministries, to an entire church. The following highlights are intended to orient you to the overall format of the web site and the available resources.
The drop-down menu below the main graphic across the top of this page is resident on nearly every page in this site. It's a very "flat" system, meaning that it will show all the sub-menus and their pages simply by moving your mouse over them. The Site Map shows an overall representation of the entire web site allowing you to click and go directly to nearly any page.
Most pages have a mini-menu near the top of its respective side column that navigates to the main sections associated with that page. (Such as the one on this page in the upper right corner.)
These are the common denominators that will be mentioned repeated throughout the web site.
The Scripture Reading Plan is the key component to every level of Bible study espoused at Walk with the Word. It's simply a weekly schedule to encourage reading of the Bible, a few chapters each week. Following this plan will take you through the entire Bible every 3.3 years. This is a reasonable pace that doesn't place too much pressure to do each week's reading while allowing the time necessary to actually apply the lessons of that Scripture personally. This is not a "race" to read through the whole Bible—it's about allowing God's Word to change our heart.
The Overview of Walk with the Word is the first in what can be described as an 11 chapter book that covers the need for God's Word in the Believer's life in general, and then how to apply it as a personal study guide, leading a small group ministry, or even incorporating a coordinated Bible-study program synchronized to every age- and ministry-level within the local church. At the top of each new page is a summary of that chapter so you can choose what to read in depth or simply become familiar with before moving on. You'll find links to download all 11 chapters as a single book as well.
The following are also available on Walk with the Word:
- Bible Studies Bible studies are available any time directly from the web site and are added as we go through each week's reading. They are generally organized as Old Testament or New Testament studies. These are good examples of putting the Inductive Bible Study method into practice and are designed to show how to facilitate a group study.
- Study Aids You can see all the documents available on the web site in a single glance at the Documents Library. But here are some of the resources available:
