I M M E R S E : T H E R E AD ING BIBLE
Immerse Beginnings
includes the first five
books of the Bible,
known as the Torah
(meaning “instruction”).
These books describe the
origins of God’s creation,
the human rebellion, and
the family of Israel—the people God
chose to be a light to all peoples. We
follow the covenant community from
its earliest ancestors to the time it is
about to enter the Promised Land.
Immerse Kingdoms
tells the story of Israel
from the time of its
­conquest of Canaan
(Joshua) through its
struggle to settle the land
(Judges, Ruth) and the
­establishment of ­Israel’s
kingdom, which ends in a forced exile
(Samuel–Kings). The nation of Israel,
commissioned to be God’s light to the
nations, falls to division and then foreign conquest for rejecting God’s rule.
Immerse Prophets
presents the First Testament prophets in groupings that represent four
historical periods, beginning with the prophets
who spoke before the
fall of Israel’s northern
­kingdom (Jonah, Amos, Hosea, Micah,
­Isaiah), then before the fall of the
southern kingdom (Zephaniah, Nahum,
Habakkuk), around the time of Jerusalem’s destruction (Jeremiah, Obadiah,
Ezekiel), and after the return from exile
(Haggai, Zechariah, Joel, Malachi).
Immerse Poets
presents the poetical
books of the First Testament in two groupings,
dividing the books
­between songs (Psalms,
Lamentations, Song of
Songs) and wisdom
­writings (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Job).
These writings all reflect the daily,
down-to-earth faith of God’s people
as they live out their covenant
relationship with him in worship
and wise living.
Immerse Chronicles
contains the remaining
First Testament books:
Chronicles–Ezra–
Nehemiah, Esther, and
Daniel. These works were
all written after the
Jewish people fell under
the control of foreign empires and
were scattered among the nations.
They remind God’s chastened people
of their identity and calling to faithfully
represent God to the nations and that
there is still hope for the struggling
dynasty of David.
Immerse Messiah
provides a unique
guided journey through
the ­entire New Testament.
Each major section is
­anchored by one of the
­Gospels, highlighting the
richness of Scripture’s
fourfold ­witness to Jesus the Messiah.
This ­creates a fresh reading of the New
Testament centered on Christ.
