In a world that views absolute truth, right and wrong, and salvation as being subject to individual interpretation, the Bible's unwavering proclamations and miraculous stories seem obsolete in modern times. But it is not God's Word that has changed. Indeed, its relevancy and its power to transform lives are intact. What has changed is the number of people who consult it. Now more than ever the need to read the Bible, to understand the big picture of its storyline, and to grasp the relevance this has for your life is critical.
As with its companion volume, For the Love of God-Volume 2, this devotional contains a systematic 365-day plan, based on the M'Cheyne Bible-reading schedule, that will in the course of a year guide you through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the rest of the Old Testament once.
In an effort to help preserve biblical thinking and living, D. A. Carson has also written thought-provoking comments and reflections regarding each day's scriptural passages. And, most uniquely, he offers you perspective that places each reading into the larger framework of history and God's eternal plan to deepen your understanding of his sovereignty-and the unity and power of his Word.
Domnal5 Stars Out Of 5February 3, 2011DomnalThis is vol. 1 of 2. Both are excellent. Carson is highly readable and understandable and applies his vast insights both as an academic and as a mature Christian to daily scripture readings to give believers a better understanding of the meaning and application of Scripture. Follows the McCheyne Bible reading plan.
Mary Menez4 Stars Out Of 5January 21, 2010Mary MenezOur church is doing a 2 year program of reading through the entire Bible using this book. The book is designed as a companion devotional as you read through the daily selected portions of the Bible. The book is designed to help keep the "big picture" in mind as you read through the entire Bible but can get confused as to the purpose of certain passages. It's already been very helpful.
Leonard Castaneda5 Stars Out Of 5March 16, 2008Leonard CastanedaI'm not the type of person who usually bothers to endorse devotional books, but I have had the opportunity to read FOR THE LOVE OF GOD (vols. 1 and 2) by D.A. Carson and consequently, I've been endorsing it to Christians from all walks who take their relationship with God very seriously. These devotionals attempt to return the focus back to Scripture, not the comments of the devotional writers. It also attempts to give the reader the "bigger picture" of Scripture (i.e. the whole counsel of God), so that one's vision would not be constrained to passages and verses, something that might give the impression that the Bible talks about many unrelated things. This approach clearly sets it apart from many devotionals.
