We recently redesigned the Bibles for America Blog to make all our posts much easier for you to find and read.
For instance, we now have a dark gray bar at the top of the blog. From wherever you are on the blog, clicking on “Blog Home” brings you to the blog stream, where you can see all the posts in chronological order, starting with the most recent posts.
But scrolling through hundreds of posts to find that particular thing you’re looking for isn’t so convenient. So today we especially want to point out three helpful tools that make exploring all of our available content a lot easier: topics, search, and related posts.
Click on “Topics” in the gray bar and a drop-down menu appears with various subjects, such as “How to Contact God,” “Reading and Understanding God’s Word,” and so on.
We’ve sorted the hundreds of posts on our blog into topics so you can quickly find posts on a particular subject.
For instance, say you want to read about prayer. Clicking on “Prayer” takes you to a page listing all our posts on prayer. You’ll see posts like How to Pray by Talking to God and Lessons on How to Pray to God from Matthew 20. Now you won’t have to scroll through the entire blog stream in order to find posts on prayer. By using Topics, you can find them collected in one place.
We encourage you to explore all the topics, even ones you may be less familiar with.
If you’re interested in a particular subject and don’t see it listed under Topics, click on “Search” and simply type in the term or phrase you’re looking for.
Your search can be as broad or as narrow as you like. For example, if you search for “love,” you’ll see many posts listed about love.
Or maybe you have a more specific question related to love. You can type in, “How do I love God?” and the search results for your inquiry will show the post What Does It Mean to Love God with All Your Heart? and other posts along that line.

Besides being able to view all the posts by using the Topics or Search tools, at the end of each post, you’ll see titles of related posts.
For example, let’s say you searched for “How to understand the Bible” which brought up the post The First Step in Understanding the Bible. Posts related to this one are listed at the end such as Do You Need Help Understanding the Bible? You can read any or all of the related posts. If you’re just starting out, you can read 7 Ways to Build up a Daily Bible Reading Habit to help you begin regularly reading the Bible and to be encouraged to read through the entire Bible.
We hope you’ll visit the blog today and use these new tools to discover all of our hundreds of posts on the Christian life and the Bible. May the Lord encourage you as you pursue Christ and the understanding of God’s Word in your Christian life.
