Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

In one simple paragraph, what is "Walk with the Word" about?

Walk with the Word provides weekly Bible studies synchronized to a reading plan that covers the entire Bible every 3.3 years. It is applicable as an individual study guide, small group ministry, or churchwide application where coordination of the study of Scripture is desired amongst more than one ministry.

Why are you using the NASB™ version for all the Bible studies?

The primary and simple answer is personal preference. It's what we use in live teaching and personal study.

Is it OK to join the reading plan in the middle? In other words, should I wait for, say, the reading plan to come back to the beginning of the Old or New Testament?

Friend, that's Satan sitting on your shoulder trying to infect you with the procrastination virus. Just start today and the reading plan "wheel" will eventually take you through everything. There's no special benefit by exclusively starting with Genesis or Matthew.

Why doesn't the reading plan follow the books of the Bible as they appear left to right in a printed Bible?

We've actually done that and are considering — in the future — offering that option; there are some very real benefits in doing it that way. However, a significant issue is that most people don't seem to know the "context", or the historical order and background from which the books came out or the fact that some of them overlap the same time period. For instance, while the northern kingdom of Israel was being taken away (covered by portions of 1 and 2 Kings and 1 and 2 Chronicles), Isaiah was alive and ministering. Adopting a "semi-chronological" approach — aligning things in chronological order yet still keeping it coherent — helps us to better understand the times in which God's Word is spoken, the conditions being experienced by the audience, and which things apply to that very hour or for a time yet to come.

Why are there references to "LogosWalk" in page footers and at various places throughout the web site?

The core materials were originally published under the "Walk with the Word" moniker but later brought to the Web and published as "LogosWalk". When we were given sole possession of "Walk with the Word" we transferred everything here. In other words, they're really one and the same thing.
