First and foremost, this is a time-tested, Bible study program. Father Reid carefully takes you through the Holy Bible, chapter by chapter, over two years, adding insights, history, and Christian clarity along the way.
The Scriptures are organized in a thematic way, using the Daily Office Lectionary in the Book of Common Prayer. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship. While the Daily Office Lectionary is used by Anglican churches, it is the same Holy Bible, only organized and delivered thematically, providing a Bible study plan that ties in Old Testament, New Testament, Psalm, and Gospel readings for every day of the year.
Podcasts are also available in video format from the All Saints' Episcopal Church web page.
