5.0 out of 5 stars My Very Favorite Commentary 20 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I like this book so much it's my favorite gift to give graduates - and they always come back to me and tell me how useful it is. There are so many different ways it can be used. I've used it as a reference for teaching Sunday School on certain subjects or on certain passages. For my personal study, the short devotional sections are perfect for morning, then I do the longer study on the same passage as my evening or weekend study when I have more time. The many different "reading" plans included in the front provide different ways of reading through the Bible each year. Plus, the Personal Application and Quotable sections for each day are great summations of the text and short enough to stick with you for the day. Richards' definitely has a God-given knack for getting right to the meaning without wasting a lot of words doing it. This is just the perfect tool for both study and devotions - and heavy on the most important part - application!

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal and challenging commentary 8 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Have used this nearly every morning for about a year. I like Lawrence's style and it makes a good change from formal study books with a lot of questions (which I have been doing for 10 years!). The emphasis is on devotional rather than intellectual bible knowledge. Warning: Some mornings, it's a lot to read in a short time.

5.0 out of 5 stars "A seminary education made as user-friendly as a devotional" 5 Aug 2001
By Jerry Parks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As a teacher, I have always encouraged that everyone should experience a study-trip through the WHOLE Bible at least once in their lifetime. Of course, the excuses were usually a 'flat tire' in II Chronicles, a 'brain-fuse blown' in Leviticus, or the dreaded 'TID (terminal interest deficiency) syndrome' somewhere down in Numbers! Now Larry Richards has made every excuse against WHOLE Bible study obsolete!
In fifteen minutes or less a day, one can learn (not read) the entire Bible in a year...and actually enjoy it! Richards is not only evangelical and solid in his theology (yes, there IS theology in this 'devotional'!) but includes helpful maps, drawings, overviews, key words, practical application....WOW, this is just a great book for the hungry Christian, who, with just a little discipline will reap a plethora of learning!
There are also alternative reading plans, theme studies, insightful wisdom from Proverbs, archaeological notes, timelines, as well as nutshell summary-blocks.
Although not every text of scripture is (or could be) included, no chapter is omitted. This book is not to be confused with merely READING the Bible in a year. Here, you STUDY the Bible in a year!! The difficult part is stopping each day!
Having studied the Bible for decades, and earning a seminary doctorate, I can say that I have never come across a 'devotional commentary' this thorough or well organized. Truly, if your goal is to LEARN the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, you will find a seminary education here, made as user-friendly as a devotional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and understand and often profound! 14 Dec 1999
By Socalmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This combination devotional and commentary is excellently written. Richards' scholarship is reliable, and his insights are very often profound. I strongly recommend this book to all Christians, whether you are brand new in your relationship with God or have been walking with Him for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars An in depth but non academic commentary with a personal devotional section for every Christian. 3 Jan 2013
By K. C. Lam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The insights in spiritual life you find in the 365 Day Devotional Commentary took the author a life time to collect.

On the date of my young wife's death, the author, in this Commentary, explains about why God allows the good die young. (Isiah 57:1-2) It helped me to travel through the most grievous portion of my life.

"....Here Isaiah observed that the premature death of a righteous man may well be a loving gift given by the Lord. What a powerful pair of verses to recall or to share when someone we know dies young. What assurance, here in the Old Testament, that upon dying those who walk uprightly 'enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death....' " 365 Day Devotional Commentary,Richards, Page 432.

The author has had his share in life. But he is optimistic,joyful and caring; and you would not know that he is in fact a genius in literature and authorship. In the 1970-80s, I tried to purchase every new book Dr. Richards had published. Soon, I could not keep up. He has published more than 250 books over a decade ago. He is still publishing. Now I have enough of his books in my own library so that I have yet failed to find any adequate Biblical reference information I searched for. My study of his Devotional Commentary and some other ones of his books has indeed helped me BECOME more and more like Jesus in the last 40 years.

A conscientious student of the 365 Day Devotional Commentary would not fail to experience a visible harvest through out life.

Dr. Ken Lam, MD (Age 80)
