Finding Joy in Reading God’s Word
When it comes to the Bible, most of us talk about two things: Is it true? And how should it impact our lives? But you may be missing something vitally important: Do you “like” the Bible? If you don’t, consistency will always be a struggle, and the Bible will be less likely to transform you.
Keith Ferrin has been talking to churches about enjoying the Bible for years, and now he’s compiled his most helpful tips. Written in a friendly, conversational tone, Ferrin teaches you how to develop a relational mindset and to approach the Bible in a way that lines up with the way your brain learns best. “How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible” will help you genuinely love the Bible more, read it more consistently, and apply God’s Word to your everyday life.
This is a simple to read book that really emphasises reading your Bible rather than spending hours or weeks learning how. I really appreciate that this book is so down to earth, has recommended scripture readings and each “chapter” is called a “Tip”. As someone who studies the Bible daily I know how easy it can become a chore and at times that has caused separation between me and the Word. This book came at the right time (God has good timing, perfect actually) and I read it just as I was beginning to slide into that slump. I am so excited to have received this book for review from Bethany House Publishers because I don’t think I would have bought it on my own. Now, it is a treasure that I will read again and again and I have already recommended to others!
If you are only going to buy one book this year about studying the Bible then this should be it! Definitely five stars!
