After Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor of the Moody Church, and his wife, Rebecca, realized that memorizing Scripture has nearly become a lost pursuit today, they decided to create this practical, relevant resource filled with powerful verses and insightful explanations to help stimulate a spiritual hunger in readers own lives. With more than 35 topics and questions for reflection and further study, readers will discover how God s Word will:
- sustain them in times of need
- comfort them in seasons of sorrow
- strengthen their hearts in times and areas of weakness
- direct their steps and decisions toward God s will
These handpicked verses provide a foundation of wisdom and hope to show readers who God is and what He has done for them, as well as who they are and how they can successfully live the Christian life.
Rebecca Lutzer, an RN, has used her gifts of hospitality, mercy, and teaching to minister to many women. She and Erwin coauthored Jesus, Lover of a Woman's Soul. Erwin and Rebecca have been married more than 40 years, are the parents of three married daughters, and have seven grandchildren.
Early on, they state that the "purpose of this book is to bring about real change in your life the kind that happens when you take the time to both memorize Scripture passages and grow in your understanding of the basic doctrines and teachings of the Bible." They encourage readers not only to read every chapter, but also to memorize the key verses and hide them in their hearts to help keep them from sin, encourage faithfulness, and to sustain, comfort, direct, and strengthen them in their daily walk with the Lord.
The verses they chose for the book came out of answering two questions: "What topics would be most appropriate for critical aspects of Christian living?" and "What are the summary verses that encapsulate the heart of these scriptural teachings?"
The chapters are too short for a thorough study, especially on more than one point at a time. This is a good book to read in addition to a regular Bible study. The Lutzers direct readers to Hebrews 4:12 and Joshua 1:8 as biblical encouragement to memorize and meditate on the Scriptures. The topics and points they address are pertinent and thought-producing. The book is not meant to be read in a hurry, but should be pondered and discussed. Each chapter is about four pages, addresses one topic, and provides one or two key verses to accompany it at the beginning. After the key verses, the Lutzers give a devotional on the topic with supportive anecdotes, and then they end each chapter with a few discussion questions. At the end of the book they provide 25 pages of additional memory verses for the topics.
Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer and his wife Rebecca have been married for more than 40 years. Erwin has been the senior pastor of the Moody Church since 1980 and is an award-winning author of more than 20 books, including One Minute After You Die. He is also an internationally renowned conference speaker and is a featured speaker on three radio programs heard worldwide. Rebecca is an RN and co-authored Jesus, Lover of a Womans Soul with Erwin. This new book that theyve written together is sure to help those searching for an insightful and easy to use devotional. Stephanie Warner, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
