On 27 March, Clyde Kilough stated in “About Our Father’s Business” that the Good News Bible Reading Program (BRP) may start firing up real soon. Tom Robinson has been busy with editing booklets so they can be resized in order to conform to US Postal standards for lower cost items. The larger sized booklets are much more expensive to ship under the changes implemented last year.
The BRP has been a tremendous resource, and I’ve sorely missed it. It was started under the Church of God Christian Fellowship (CGCF). When much of that membership became associated with UCG, this was one resource that was carried forward. Due to limited time, I would forego other booklets and reading materials and concentrate on it for my main formal Bible study. If you haven’t taken a look at it, I recommend you check out the Good News BRP by UCG.
I got curious after hearing about this. How many other Church of God organizations have a reading program for the Bible? I honestly couldn’t think of any! Well, I searched on the web, not kidding, 2 – 3 hours, and I only came up with 3! One of them is from someone who calls his site Church of God Daily Bible Study, and he doesn’t even appear affiliated with COG7 or any of its descendants! If anyone knows where any others are hiding, please let me know!
Anyhow, here are the others I found (note: I have not checked these out for quality):
COG7’s Bible Advocate site has a booklet for a 2 year program. I don’t know what, if any, commentary is in it.
Church of God Daily Bible Study has an online version (HTML, no PDF for downloading).
