Practical Encouragement to Read the Bible Daily
on 6 April 2010
To summarize this book as "read the Bible everyday and God will mentor you" would be both accurate and unfair at the same time. Accurate because the heart of this book is that by reading and reflecting on the Bible day by day, God will mentor us, and so build us into the people He wants us to be. Unfair because this book is much more than that--it is winsomely written, inspiring, and very practical. The author outlines a simple process for reading and reflecting upon the Bible, and shows many examples of the approach. If there is a weakness, it is that the book may encourage people to jump from Observation (what the text says) to Application (what is means to me today), without first going through the crucial step of Interpretation. Overall, however, this is an encouraging and worthwhile read, and it is beautifully written.
