Through the ages, the church year has been ordered according to God's story found in the Bible. With every new season, believers have immersed themselves in the Scriptures, growing closer to God through his Word. In Through the Bible, Through the Year, beloved pastor John Stott takes readers through the whole biblical story, one day at a time. Each of the 365 devotions is based on a key Scripture passage and includes biblical passages for further reading.
From September until Christmas, readers experience the Old Testament story from the creation until the coming of Christ. From January through April, they explore the story of Jesus in the Gospels. And from May through August they relive the story of Acts through Revelation, including God's power for living now and his pledge of our final inheritance when Christ returns. With each reading, readers will grow closer to God and grow in their understanding of his Word.
John Stott (1921-2011) was an internationally acclaimed London-based preacher and scholar. His many works include Basic Christianity and What Christ Thinks of the Church.
