Our mission at Matthias Media is basically to produce resources of all kinds that equip Christians to pursue God’s agenda in their lives—to grow to maturity in Christ, and to minister to others to see them grow to maturity in Christ as well. Below are listed some of our most popular and useful resources that can help you in pursuing God’s agenda.

For more details about these resources and many others, visit our website.

Resources for growth

The Daily Reading Bible

Included in the iPhone/iPad app version of this Bible Overview you’ve been looking at is the full series of the Daily Reading Bible. If you don’t have access to that app, the printed version of The Daily Reading Bible is an all-in-one resource that helps you set your mind every day on God’s word in the Bible. Each volume contains around 60 undated readings. Each reading is designed to take around 15-20 minutes, and contains:

  • the full text of the Bible passage for that reading
  • some questions to get you thinking
  • some ‘points to ponder’
  • some ideas to get you started in prayer.

It’s all in one booklet that you can take with you anywhere—on the train, on the bus, to the park at lunchtime, or to your favourite armchair.

Bible studies

We have two main series of Bible studies:

Both series are designed mainly for small groups, although the Pathway series is also very suitable for one-to-one Bible study.

Although pitched at slightly different levels, both series focus closely on the passage of Scripture rather than bouncing too quickly into discussion or application; both seek to read the passage in its context; and both maintain a balance between providing input and direction, and allowing plenty of room for exploration and discovery.

One-to-One Bible Reading: a simple guide for every Christian

Imagine if there was a way that people could grow in their knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ—a way that returned gospel growth to the everyday fabric of personal relationship, rather than relying on church-run programs. That guided people in a deeper, more meaningful way than an event, program or class could possibly do—guided on an individual basis by someone who cared for them personally.

What is this way? What is this activity that is so simple and so universal that it meets the discipleship needs of very different people at very different stages of discipleship, even non-Christians?

We call it reading the Bible one-to-one.

But what exactly is reading the Bible one-to-one? Why should we do it? Who is it for?

In One-to-One Bible Reading: a simple guide for every Christian, David Helm answers these important questions.

Guidebooks for Life

This is a series of straightforward, practical books that deal with the important nuts-and-bolts topics that Christians need to know about as we walk each day with our Master. Some Christian books are all theory and no practical application; others are all stories and tips with no substance. The Guidebooks for Life aim to achieve a vital balance—that is, to dig into the Bible and discover what God is telling us there, as well as apply that truth to our daily lives.

Key titles in the series include:

  • A Sinner’s Guide to Holiness, by John Chapman
  • Guidance and the Voice of God, by Phillip Jensen and Tony Payne
  • Encouragement: How words change lives, by Gordon Cheng
