We want to experience God through the Bible. . . . We really do!
But our good intentions fall flat when reading the Bible just doesn’t seem to make that happen. What should feel dynamic and important and alive often feels confusing and boring and irrelevant. But it doesn’t have to.
In Help! My Bible is Alive!, pastor and Bible teacher Nicole Unice brings life back to reading the Bible by helping you personally encounter God through his Word.
With Help! My Bible is Alive!, you’ll learn to . . .
find the meaning of any portion of Scripture;
apply four key questions to every passage;
create valuable habits by workshopping key verses; and
find practical principles as you read parables, poetry, narratives, ancient letters, and wisdom literature.
Take this 30-day challenge and develop habits that will sustain a vibrant spiritual life where the Word of God is alive and active for you.

The Bible is not alive if it’s not alive for you! The tool you’re holding in your hand will lead you to a life-transforming relationship with the Bible and its Author. Go for it!
by Roy L. Peterson, president and CEO of American Bible Society
Nicole brings to bear her remarkable skills as a communicator to address the most fundamental question of Christian living: How can I hear, experience, and understand God through reading the Bible? As you read Help! My Bible Is Alive!, you will think to yourself, Surely some accomplished Bible teacher has already undertaken this crucial project—and you will be wrong, because no one has. It’s odd, but no one thought to tell us, in practical detail, how to meet with God through the Scriptures and how to approach the Bible with a posture of faith-seeking understanding.
by Rick James, PhD, director of Cru publishing and author of Watch and A Million Ways to Die
A lifetime in ministry with a passion for helping new believers learn how to grow in Christ has convinced me that there is nothing more important in the life of a Christ follower than time spent regularly in Scripture. Nicole knows how to help Bible readers turn the key. I have personally sat in groups as she taught this material and have witnessed its effectiveness. It is an indispensable tool for those desiring to grow in their relationship with Christ.

Help! My Bible Is Alive! Like a zombie, the once-perceived-dead compilation of Scripture is brought back to life for readers by Nicole’s fun (yes, fun) and practical application for individual reading. No longer is Bible reading for the few: With Nicole’s latest book, it’s for you more than ever. This is the book I’ve been needing for the countless people in my church plant who are scared—but hungry—to engage with this beautiful compilation we call the Bible.
by Stephen Poore, MDiv, visionary pastor of Center Church
The frustrations my students (and the rest of us) often experience when trying to understand the Bible can suggest that Scripture is at best boring, at worst irrelevant—and unknowable regardless. What lies these are! And what a gift we have found in Nicole’s book, which allows anyone willing to jump in to see for themselves that the Bible—when faithfully engaged on its own terms—is unsettlingly powerful, scandalously relevant, beautiful beyond belief, and very much alive.
by Rev. Rachel Toone, dean of spiritual formation at Montreat College
