As our culture drifts from its Judeo-Christian roots, the need to understand the Bible as a whole text—the complete and inspired history of redemption, as well as the revelation of God and His character—is critical. This 365-day devotional, with a complete Bible-reading plan, is for those who recognize this need. It will open the Bible to those who desire to understand Scripture in its context, to know the God of the Bible, and to realize how He works in the lives of real people.

In a world that views absolute truth, right and wrong, and divine judgment as being either outdated or subject to each person's definition, the Bible's absolute statements, direct warnings, and fantastic stories seem more out of touch with each passing year. But it is not God's Word that has changed; indeed, its relevancy and its power to transform lives are still intact. What has changed is the number of people who consult it. Even the impact of His holy Word is dulled if we neglect to open our Bibles and seek Him there.

Now more than ever, the need to read the Bible, to understand the big picture of its storyline, and to grasp the relevance this has for your life is critical.

“So here is a lesson: false or improper application of genuine truth may be heartless and cruel—and, as here, it may say false things about God.” (Page 63)

“The lesson of these radically different experiences is one that we must learn again and again: God’s servants do not have the same gifts, the same tasks, the same success, or the same degree of divine intervention. It is partly a matter of gifts and calling; it is partly a matter of where we fit into God’s unfolding redemptive purposes. Has he placed us in times of declension, for example, or of revival; of persecution, or of major advance? Let God be God; let all his servants be faithful.” (Page 38)

“Ezra devoted himself to the study of the Law. There is no long-range effective teaching of the Bible that is not accompanied by long hours of ongoing study of the Bible. Effectiveness in teaching the Bible is purchased at the price of much study, some of it lonely, all of it tiring. If you are not a student of the Word, you are not called to be a teacher of the Word.” (Page 33)

“Some sins have such complex tentacles that it is not surprising if solutions undertaken by repentant sinners are messy as well.” (Page 36)

“The deep tension between faithfulness to God and alienation from one’s own people is an unvarying constant in the ministry of faithful preachers assigned to a declining culture.” (Page 226)

    Concise yet theologically rich. If you follow the M'Cheyne Bible reading plan, this is a must have along with vol. 1.
