Our TYB Schedule takes you through the Bible book-by-book, jumping in and out of the Old and New Testament to give you a solid foundation of each Testament. If you're just starting out, be sure to read the introduction!
the orderly accounts
Luke-Acts are two books but one volume, and these orderly accounts satisfy any logical systematic thinker. Luke, having investigated everything from the beginning, presents his gospel of what Jesus did and said.
THE BOOK OF POWER
Luke-Acts are two books but one volume. Luke continues in Acts presenting an account what the disciples did and said.
IN THE BEGINNING
Get to know Adam, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph – the fathers of our faith, and build a strong, solid foundation of knowledge on who we are and where we came from.
THE GREAT ESCAPE
From Egypt and out again; this book takes the people of God from slavery in Egypt to the other side of the Red Sea.
the book of joy
This book will restore your joy – not a lying-on-a-beach-in-the-Bahamas joy, but a joy in the midst of adversity. Paul writes this letter while in prison and teaches us how to be content in all circumstances.
identity before warfare
Need some power and help to understand your identity? Ephesians is all about knowing who you are in Him. Paul is writing to the church at Ephesus and he wants them to know who they are in Christ, compared to the strongholds and temples that stand in their city.
loyalty and love
This beautiful book is set in the time of the Judges, when everyone was doing as they saw fit. In the midst of this, we have this beautiful story of a woman who chose loyalty and faithfulness over self preservation to become part of the lineage of David and Jesus.
this is how we think, the doctrinal letter
Paul wrote this letter-essay to present some of the most important doctrinal thoughts in Christianity. If you need to know what to think about salvation, justification, all Jesus did for us and how that impacts our life, than this book is for you.
With guest writer, Rev Keith Garner
time for an ad break - honest and open worship
Psalms is not a book that you read cover to cover. If you need a break from the book you are reading, jump into Psalms. Come and worship, pray and sing with these incredible hymns.
With guest writer, Ryan Smith
the book of law
This book is a list of laws that the people of the Old testament had to live by. Read this book and see what it would have been like if God didn’t send Jesus as a sacrifice for our sins.
BEFORE TAKING THE LAND
This book has it all! It begins with a census (it is called Numbers after all), and it contains the first attempt to enter the promised land, and then the beginnings of the wanderings of the wilderness for 40 years.
With guest writer, Dr Kyle Keimer
the book of signs
The most creative writer, John, presents the gospel. Not in chronological order, but by showing us the signs that point to Jesus as the fulfillment of the Messianic promises.
With guest writer, Kate Forsyth
the RUNAWAY prophet
Jonah is not running away because he doesn't want to prophesy – he is running away because he doesn't want God to forgive and save his enemies! You are going to love this book as you journey through the frustration of Jonah into the whale to see God save the people Jonah hates.
With guest writers, Ps Steve Burgess & Dr Kyle Keimer
our powerful god
Have you ever wondered if God has seen the bad things that have happened to you? This short book, the shortest in the Old Testament, will show you that God sees everything.
the LIFE OF MOSES
The continuation and final part of the five-part series called the Torah, or Pentateuch. Read Moses' final speeches to his people before he dies and they enter the promised land!
With guest writer, Dr Kyle Keimer
life in the wisdom of god
The first nine chapters of Proverbs are great to read in one hit, as it sets you up in the character of Wisdom and Folly. The rest can be taken in small doses – meditate on each scripture, like ointment it will change your thinking and give you wisdom that you need.
know your identity
These books are John on fire; he is passionate, strong and very black and white. These short letters will take you to another level in your maturity in Christ, giving us the tests of Christian living and the things we should 'know'.

Are you battling with the timing or plans of God? Habukkuk is prophesying to the people of Judah, calling them to remain faithful no matter what happens in the future.
faith needs actions
Written by the brother of Jesus, James presents his passionate plea that faith needs actions. We are called to be people who don’t just talk the talk but walk the walk – be encouraged with passion as you read the book of James.
a new hope
This apocalyptic letter is a book of hope. You are not supposed to focus on the beast but on the beauty, worship and power of God in this book. This is about God restoring everything back to its original intention; this is about the future of our world, our future and the incredible hope and choice that await us.
the book of instructions
The first book of the New Testament, Matthew is the door between the Old and New. Full of the teachings of Christ and Old Testament scripture, this Jewish natured book guides us through all that Jesus fulfilled as the promised Messiah of the Old Testament.
With guest writer, Pam Borrow
the promised fulfilled
It’s finally time to take the promised land and this book details how they did it. Joshua is a book about courage and strength, so if you need some historical might, you are going to love this book.
the prophet that changed god's mind
This powerful book shows the heart of God against pride, arrogance and corruption in His own people, and the heart of the prophet that changed God’s mind.
This incredible book is written to remind the people of Israel how faithful God was when He was their King. Learn from their mistakes as you read Judges and see God rescue them over and over again.
the new people of god
These two letters are from Peter, the disciple who never gives up. He was a part of Jesus' inner circle. He saw the miracles, he saw the resurrection, he was at the Day of Pentecost, he met Paul and now he shares his wisdom with us in two short letters that will change your life.
With guest writers, Kate Forsyth & Ps Dan Gorry
Changed people change a community
Another son of Paul, Titus, is leading a church in Crete, one of the worst cities of the 1st Century. The question Paul answers in his letter is 'how do I live in Crete and remain a Christian'?

THE FRUSTRATED PROPHET
Prophesying just before and into the exile of the people of Judah, Jeremiah is a book of lament, honesty and frustration. This prophet was called by God to a very annoying people that wouldn’t listen to him, put him in prison, beat him up and called him a traitor but he keeps going!
With guest writer, Ps Nat Taylor

better than the movies
Meet Samuel, the final Judge of Israel, Saul, the first King, and King David as he fights for his throne. Intrigue, adultery, murder, incest, sons killing sons, betrayal – television will look boring to you after you read these books.
With guest writer, Chris Justice
MENTORING SESSION FROM PAUL
Would you like to be mentored by Paul? You can be coached by him as you read 1 & 2 Timothy. These incredible letters to one of his ‘sons’ in the faith is like a mentoring and pastoral session with Paul himself.
