Despite faithfully using daily devotionals, I was never able to successfully complete a Bible in the Year reading program until purchasing Dr. Stanley's Daily Bible. I am 3/4 of the way through reading this Daily Bible for the second year in a row. Reading the day's selection quickly became a natural part of my devotional and prayer time. Each day seems to bring the right balance of Psalms, Proverbs, the New and Old Testaments PLUS Dr. Stanley's powerful insights and study points. I am continually humbled how the Lord uses one or more of the scriptures each day from the selections to encourage, teach, or answer prayers/questions.
I have always wanted to read thru the Bible, but found it very difficult to stay on task. A friend and I challenged each other, both appreciating Dr Stanley, to read each day and meet occasionally to hold each other accountable. This Bible is wonderful because it helps you to apply God's Word with daily insights. I highly recommend it and will buy more for gifts!
