We are in need of truth more now than ever before. In their book, 90 Days in John 14-17, Romans, James, Timothy Keller & Sam Allberry deliver just that – truth in small snippets for the reader to take in and ruminate.
“It is a magnificent thing, in a world which is used to mistakes, to deceit, and to confusion, to be able to read flawless, pure, refined words. And that is what you do each time you open your Bible. God does not make errors in anything he says. He does not obscure truth, by accident or by design. He does not fail to do anything he has said he will do.”
(from page 9)
The authors write in a style that comes alongside the reader, provoking one to look at the Scriptures for oneself. Each day’s reading is easy to understand, written as a devotional and not as a commentary. Yet each day provides enriching and illuminating exposition on the passage selection.
Included in each day, along with the Scriptures, are questions which help to apply the Scriptures in a practical and manageable way. There is space to record one’s observations, applications, and prayer daily.
This is a wonderful devotional and study book for anyone and especially for those newer to the Scriptures. The format helps in keeping one organized and the study method is very effective and enjoyable. For those who are familiar with Scripture, the readings will be a breath of fresh air, sort of like CPR, they will bring life to a devotional time that may have become more rote and stale.
“What we dwell on in our minds will shape the way we live our lives. What you set your mind on shapes your character and behavior.
Wherever your mind goes most naturally and freely when there is nothing else to distract it – that is what you are really living for.” (page 260)
May our minds always turn to God’s Word – the only flawless words.
