For the Love of God, Vol 1: Daily Companion for Discovering the Riches of God's Word
Publisher Review: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, 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 so doing, D. A. Carson completes the work he began in the first book.
In an effort to help preserve biblical thinking and living, he has also written though-provoking comments and reflections regarding each day's scriptural passages. And, most uniquely, he offers 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.
More than a devotional guide, For the Love of God, Volume 2 will open the Bible to anyone who wants to:
These daily insights will help you view the Bible for all that it is--both the inspired history of redemption, and the revelation of God and His character. In addition, this book's through-the-Bible-in-a-year reading plan will renew your urgency not only to delve deeply into God's Word, but to study it daily so that your mind will be shaped and informed by what God Himself says.

"Carson's breadth and depth of scripture knowledge is stunning. Exegetically solid and devotionally warm, these volumes are a fantastic companion for those following M'Cheyne's calendar of bible readings. For someone who normally dislikes devotionals, this was a rare find."
