Publisher's Description

  • The Bible is God's Word.
  • The Bible teaches us how we should live.
  • The Bible is something we should read every day.
  • The Bible is something we should enjoy reading.

Most of us agree with these statements. At least in theory. But what's our reality?

Sometimes reading the Bible is a delight. But if we’re honest, many times reading the Bible feels like hard work and we read out of a sense of obligation. Some of us have given up entirely.

Tim Chester reminds us that every time we read the Bible we hear the voice of God. The One who spoke and brought the universe into existence, whose voice thundered from Mount Sinai, and whose words healed the sick is who speaks to us today. So as we read the Bible we don’t merely learn information about God—we hear his voice and encounter his presence.

Including a study guide for group use, this book helps us approach reading the Bible with an eager anticipation, expecting to hear God’s voice and meet him in his Word.
