The Bible is not exactly the easiest book to read, understand, analyze and live by its rules. It's probably the most scripted and complicated book ever written, but since its the basis of Christianity, by all logic every Christian should read it and study it; after all, there's no time limit as to when should you be done studying. The thing is, Christianity as a religion should be accepted and the Bible should be introduced to people in their earliest ages, as in childhood. It's most logical that people will best accept the principles of Christianity when they're still in their best learning ages and “tabula rasa” or blank board, which means they're able to learn and accept anything. That's the point of the Alpha course; it consists of several lectures that have the sole purpose of introducing Christianity and the Holy Bible to new believers.
