    This is one of three books I use daily Somehow, John Stott has the gift of describing what is going on in various portions of Scripture in a way which enables the reader to almost BE there, on the scene Whether the church year calendar is in the Gospels, where I nearly feel the dust in my sandals as I listen to the Messiah instruct, rebuke, commend, or just love or in the Great Throne Room of Revelation 4 and 5, where I am overcome with awe Mr Stott makes it very real, and very well, rec This is one of three books I use daily Somehow, John Stott has the gift of describing what is going on in various portions of Scripture in a way which enables the reader to almost BE there, on the scene Whether the church year calendar is in the Gospels, where I nearly feel the dust in my sandals as I listen to the Messiah instruct, rebuke, commend, or just love or in the Great Throne Room of Revelation 4 and 5, where I am overcome with awe Mr Stott makes it very real, and very well, recognizable, as impossible as that should be for the twenty first century reader I cannot recommend this book highly enough, for the believer who truly wants to walk through the Scriptures and dothan just observe, but really LIVE them

    Whew We made it through this one Dr John Stott provides lots of history in each daily reading also, he uses, BIG words, which makes one stumble through the reading dig into one s memory to recall the meanings of these words.It s a challenge, for sure, not one we particularly enjoyed It was, however, enlightening in many ways got us through the Bible in a year as promised.We wouldn t choose this one, again, but all in all it was OK BTW, totally different cover on the one we got from Whew We made it through this one Dr John Stott provides lots of history in each daily reading also, he uses, BIG words, which makes one stumble through the reading dig into one s memory to recall the meanings of these words.It s a challenge, for sure, not one we particularly enjoyed It was, however, enlightening in many ways got us through the Bible in a year as promised.We wouldn t choose this one, again, but all in all it was OK BTW, totally different cover on the one we got fromthan the one shown above

    It s a little bit like doing your Bible reading with a famous theologian, reading this book daily This is a great devotional book to follow for someone who is already familiar with the Bible and wants to have the Bible speak daily into their life.

    I ve tried to read this when i was in high school, and failed it miserably, i m not sure if i had actually read the whole thing And i m using read very loosely here If i did, it would ve been literally getting through the words on the page, grasping nothing Initially i read it two pages at a time one spread but eventually i slowed it down to just one page at a time to prevent myself from wanting to give up altogether.Now that i m older i thought i d go through it again, and the problem i I ve tried to read this when i was in high school, and failed it miserably, i m not sure if i had actually read the whole thing And i m using read very loosely here If i did, it would ve been literally getting through the words on the page, grasping nothing Initially i read it two pages at a time one spread but eventually i slowed it down to just one page at a time to prevent myself from wanting to give up altogether.Now that i m older i thought i d go through it again, and the problem i had with it began to surface quickly It may very well just be me not liking the writing style or the way the message was sent across But i found it very difficult to stomach It wasn t as if it had the wrong doctrine, or that it was going off tangent to the gospel of Christ Perhaps it was just written in a way that i didn t enjoy For which it is not the author s fault, but me, the recipients However, i have gotten through the whole thing from beginning to end possibly again I am glad that it went by a lot faster than going through the Bible currently on 2 Chronicles , it really made me look forward to the rest of the Bible This book is a great summary for a Christian to go through as a companion to the Bible It covers all the major events in the bible, and spread out indetails for some as well It covers context and themes, which is quite helpful for new Christians, or Christians who still have questions The most memorable part of this book was of course, due to my sappiness the first time i read this interpretation of why Eve was taken from Adam s rib, it was along the lines of She was not taken from his head to lord over him,nor from his foot to be trampled by him,but from his side to be equal,close to his heart to be loved,and under his arm to be protected Let me just fangirl for a moment, and then find you the proper quote from the book on page 27, which was a quote from another book called The Book of Sentences by Peter Lombard, and expanded on by Matthew Henry Matthew Henry said that Eve wasnot made out of his head to top him, not out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be belovedsqueal

    My next big spiritual study goal completed This is a great devotional that goes a lot deeper than just a feel good biblical message I actually learned things from this, rather than just having a positive thought for the day like a lot of devotionals can be.

  8. says:

    Very good, comprehensive look at the Bible and its meaning Great way to get an overview of the Bible through daily Scripture and meditation readings Only takes a year
