Realizing this widespread need, respected preacher and scholar John Stott has assembled a new book that will guide readers through the Bible according to the church calendar.

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 ...more

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

This book is a great daily devotional that teaches through the Bible according to the Christian calendar year. Having just ended Advent at the end of 2008, it became a great way to start a new year-long devotional.

John Stott's teaching example is phenomenal: he gives a main scripture passage to focus on each day, followed by a three-fourths page reflection on that scripture lesson. Included in his commentary are great theological, church history, and practical spiritual formation concepts to re

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.

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!

Stott always has something to say that challenges us from the Word of God. This is a practical daily devotional.
