Build your Bible IQ and Christian worldview in just 15 minutes a day! Over the course of a year, Core 52 will help you master the 52 most important passages in the Bible. 

“You will gain the tools you need for living the life God has called you to.” (Kyle Idleman, pastor and author of Not a Fan

“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” (1 Timothy 4:8) 

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. Core 52 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 35 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. 

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, 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 52 core passages are lenses through which you can read the rest of the Bible with clarity and confidence.

Core 52 is simply one of the best daily guides in print to strengthen your faith. Mark Moore condenses decades of learning into a succinct and powerful book. Mark is not only brilliant, but he’s also a brilliant communicator of ideas. Core 52 will transform both your Bible IQ and your life.” (Jud Wilhite, author of Pursued and senior pastor of Central Church)

“There is no question that Bible engagement is the single greatest predictor of spiritual growth. That’s why I’m so excited about Core 52. Mark has provided not only a clear on-ramp to understanding the Bible better but also how to apply it to your real life.” (Ashley Wooldridge, senior pastor of Christ’s Church of the Valley) 

“Whether you are someone who reads the Bible on a regular basis, has never read it, or has started and stopped reading it multiple times, Core 52 is the resource for you! This is an easy-to-use and engaging tool that will strengthen your understanding of God’s Word.” (Jon Weece, lead follower at Southland Christian Church and author of Jesus Prom

Bucket List Accomplished!

I've had on my bucket list for years to really study and understand the Bible, but I never got around to doing it because I didn't know where to start. This book is literally exactly what I needed! As the author, Mark Moore points out, this book isn't so much about making you smart as it is about making you effective.

I'm also very glad this book is read by the actual author. Mark's delivery and authority with teaching the Bible is compelling. This was an excellent addition to my library of spiritual books.

a well-structured journeythrough the Bible

52 Practical weekly exercises, focused on key themes such as sin, faith, prophesy, love and God's character. I think this book meets the stated aim of helping to understanding and apply key Scriptures, Recommended. I've listened to all chapters in a few long sessions will now go back over each one in turn over the next year, and am looking forward to the journey!
