A Bible Made For Reading

Welcome to Immerse

Years in the making and thousands of participants later, its clear that Immerse is a whole new Bible reading experience. We’re excited for you to try it with your Church, school, or small group and join the growing Immerse family.

Please let us know how we can help you get started.

Step 1

Get To Know Immerse

Start by learning about the incredible new Bible format, specifically created to provide the best reading experience possible.

  • 6-volumes available in print, e-reader, and audio editions
  • Beautiful single-column text optimized for zero distractions
  • Each Book’s content has been organized and displayed according to its literary genre

Is this the whole Bible (New Testament, etc.)?

Yes, it is simply the text of the Holy Bible, New Living Translation with brief introductions to each book. Nothing has been added or eliminated from the Bible text. The only alterations have been to remove all of the modern additives of chapters, verses, notes, etc.

Why the NLT? Is this available in other translations?

The NLT is regarded by many as the best reading translation available today. Immerse is not available in other translations.

Can I use the Bible I already have?

Using a different Bible would make the experience difficult, since the reading plan uses page numbers to indicate each day’s reading. It will also be difficult to follow the text in discussion groups since people reference passages by page numbers and not chapter or verse.

More importantly, the format matters to the experience. Removing the chapter and verse numbers and restoring the natural breaks and literary formats changes how you read. Presenting the text in a more familiar format, like other books we are accustomed to reading, encourages reading books as whole books, letters as entire letters, and poetry as poetry. It is what the authors originally intended.

Step 2

Put Immerse Into Action

With your volumes in hand, or in your earbud, or on your screen, it’s time to read and discuss. Immerse is an experience that’s easy to start and keep going.

  • Easy to accomplisy, accessible 8-week reading plans
  • “Book Clubs” engage in their reading together once each week
  • Intentionally uncomplicated. No DVD’s, workbooks, or homework

Why do you call Immerse a reading experience?

Every component of Immerse is designed to help people experience the Bible in a fresh new way. From the restored formatting of the Bible to the unmediated structure of the group conversations, Immerse is meant to break the mold of a typical Bible study or small group curriculum and allow the Scriptures to come alive for people, perhaps for the first time. In fact, we think it’s more accurate to refer to it as a “Book Club” rather than a Bible study.

Why is the program length eight weeks?

Eight weeks is recommended because it is not so long that groups lose momentum or so short that the reading gets to be too much. It has proven to be an optimum length to complete a significant reading plan, such as the whole New Testament. It does require a somewhat serious commitment to reading each week, but it is also only for eight weeks.

Some churches have made Immerse a 16-week experience, while others have customized it differently to fit their needs. Alternative 16-week reading plans are available under Resource Downloads on each volume’s Resource page.

What if I can’t keep up with the reading and fall behind?

That’s OK; don’t give up. If you fall too far behind, skip ahead to where the group is reading so you can continue being involved in the group discussions. You can always go back and read what you’ve missed later.

Step 3

Witness The Transformation

Now that you’ve started with Immerse, don’t be surprised when everyone around you can’t stop talking about the Bible. Thankfully, this isn’t a one-time experience!

  • Follow our tried and true communal Bible reading rhythm
  • Easily read through the Bible in 3 years
  • Notice measurable increases in Bible literacy

How is Immerse different from a Bible study?

Immerse is designed to draw people into a broad reading of the Bible, developing a familiarity and fluency with the entire text. Think of it as reading more for awareness than personal application. In this way they gain an understanding of the overarching story of the Bible. They also gain a better understanding of biblical context and see the big picture!

It is designed to engage people in community, interacting with each other and the Bible. There is no “teacher,” no workbooks or additional reading material. It’s simply reading and discussing the Scriptures together, more like a Book Club than a Bible study.

This in turn creates a desire to study the Bible more carefully. Pastors report an increased interaction with their preaching, and interest in Bible studies grows as people take time to “read big.”

Immerse is not a replacement for Bible study. In fact, it is proving to be a catalyst for more Bible study.

How is Immerse different from other Reading Bibles?

Simply stated, Immerse is much more than just a Reading Bible. It is supported by a carefully thought-out reading plan, along with free additional resources (weekly videos, a custom audio edition, Family Guides, etc.) to enhance the experience.

It’s geared to give whole churches an intentional plan to read the entire Bible together and to establish a regular rhythm of Bible reading in the life of the church. The goal is to ignite a new passion for reading the Bible together in community in churches around the world. It is more than offering a product–it’s growing a movement.

It also uses the Holy Bible, New Living Translation, a clear and faithful rendering of God’s word in contemporary English.

Can we use this for our adult Sunday School class?

Absolutely. That being said, group discussion is a vital part of the Immerse experience, and groups often talk for 60-90 minutes. Sunday School schedules can sometimes be too limited in time to really get into meaningful discussions. Also, limiting group sizes to no more than 10-12 people greatly increases participation. In larger groups it is hard to include everyone in the discussion and leaders tend to drive discussion rather than allowing a free-flowing intimate conversation. Informal gatherings create a better environment for free and open discussion.
