Most of us want to know the Bible better, but few reach our goal, often because we’re too busy or we don’t know where to start. Core52 removes both barriers, offering a common-sense solution that fits into our busy lives. Respected Bible professor and teaching pastor Mark E. Moore developed this proven process from thirty-five years of helping people grow deeper in God’s Word.

Each week features a brief essay, memory verse, Bible story, trajectory verses, and practical ways to put what you’ve learned into practice. An optional “Overachiever Challenge” offers the chance to memorize the top 100 Bible verses by year’s end. If you’re looking to really grow spiritually in 2022, this is a great way to do it!

This simple approach allows you to become familiar with the big ideas of the Bible in less time and with less effort than other reading plans. In one year (for only about 15 minutes a day), you can master the core of the Bible—focusing on topics from God’s will to worry, happiness to holiness, and leadership to love. These fifty-two core passages are lenses through which you can read the rest of the Bible with clarity and confidence.

Core52 will run throughout 2022 beginning January 2.

If you would like to take a deeper dive into Core52, we encourage you to get involved with a study group. To learn more, please visit our Groups page.
