NOT YOUR AVERAGE BOOK
It's the world's best-selling book and yet it is generally the least read in any household. Written several thousand years ago, it could certainly seem irrelevant at first glance. The fact that it is a tome can also be an enormously daunting prospect, especially when you are time-poor.
But the Bible isn't just your average book. It's a love letter, storybook, history lesson, self-help guide and collection of inspirational quotes all rolled into one.
Research done by Baylor University found that Christians who read the Bible are more likely to actively seek social and economic justice; believe it's important to consume or use fewer goods; and are less likely to view religion and science as incompatible, among other moral and political issues.
Then there's another study published in the Mental Health, Religion and Culture journal, which showed that "Bible reading makes a small but unique contribution to promoting a sense of purpose in life among [13-15-year-olds]."
And yet, those aren't the main reasons why Adventists study the Bible.

In a nutshell, Adventists study the Bible because they are in love with the Word, "and the Word was God" (John 1:1).
That all members and visitors receive access to biblical instruction, especially to the three angels messages and to prophetic understanding and relevance of the times in relation to God’s eternal plan of salvation for humanity.
