"It's so hard to make time"

Finding time for God's Word is most likely your biggest challenge right now. Once you begin, then it's hard to know how to make the most of that time.

sound familiar?

"life never seems to slow down"

No matter what you do, it feels like the pace of life never lets up enough to read

"It's so hard to stay consistent"

One time this week. Nothing last week. You feel sporadic and inconsistent at best

"My study time keeps getting pushed aside"

Even when you do set aside time, inevitably something more urgent comes along

"I'M NOT SURE where I SHOULD start"

Once you finally sit down to read, you don't have much of a plan to follow

"I wish i knew the big picture better"

You would love to know how this text fits in with the larger story of the Bible

"jUST tell me what i NEED TO KNOW"

It would help so much to have a guide or summary to use when reading

Bodie has developed the tools and an easy way to help me better understand the Bible in terms of context, history and application for my life.

How it works:

the BIble Study success path (6 essential areas)

We asked ourselves: "What are the absolute essential things someone would need to learn in order to really understand the Bible?"

The Bible Study Success Path was our answer.

gAIN THE PROPER TOOLS and Mindset for learning


How do I form a Bible Study habit? What Bible should I choose? Where should I get started reading? How can I set myself up for success?



How does the larger story of the Bible fit together? What are the most important turning point events? What themes do we see throughout?

Consider Genre, Background & Author's Intent


What are the major differences between Bible genres? What was important at the time of writing? How does this text apply to our lives today?

understand the Impact of  Jesus’ life & ministry


How does the entire Bible point to Jesus? What are the major factors we need to know about his life and ministry? How does he fulfill prophecy?

Unite and Your Life to the Savior and to the Story


How do we experience authentic inward growth and transformation?  How do become more Christlike and live like people who have been set free?

Learn How to Study Each Book with Excellence


What should we know about each of the books of the Bible? Do they all offer something unique? How are they the same or different from the others?


My name is Bodie Quirk. I was a Teaching Pastor at my church for over 20 years before stepping down to focus on building You Can Learn the Bible full time.

I did not grow up reading the Bible.

I came to faith in Christ during college and knew basically nothing about the Bible. I read. I studied. I went to countless home Bible Studies. I couldn't get enough.

Although many people taught me God's Word, nobody showed me how it all fit together. I had to figure that out on my own. Now, I want to share everything I have learned with you.

You Can Learn the Bible is my way of distilling and organizing everything I know about the Bible down to the key essentials, and then delivering them to you. I want to help maximize your growth in minimum time.

Nothing will change your life more than knowing and loving God's Word deeply, and I want to help you get there.
I truly believe you can learn, and love, the Bible.

Bodie has received some encouraging feedback about his Bible teaching, both from people he taught at his church, as well as those who found him on YouTube.

Your teaching has been extremely helpful for me! Since I discovered your YouTube channel, my Bible study has plunged to new depths, soared to new heights, and surged to new breadths. Thank you so much!

Simple and very organized technique of teaching. He teaches in plain English and makes it easier to understand. My highest recommendation. It's so much easier to learn and apply the scriptures through Pastor Bodie's style of teaching.

He combines the right amount of cross referencing, depth and passion to motivate attentiveness and the desire to learn. He works to leave no one behind. He loops back to his main points enough so the main message is not lost in the details.

He is prepared, enthusiastic, and down to earth. He’s like your favorite teacher. But instead of learning math, English, or science you are learning the wonder and mystery of God’s Word.
