I have always enjoyed reading my Bible (note, I said “my” Bible because it has always been a personal experience for me).In choosing to review HOW TO ENJOY READING YOUR BIBLE by Keith Ferrin my goal was to see if he agreed with me; failure to do so would result in a bad review.
I am pleased to say I enjoyed reading this book, Keith Ferrin put in writing, and then some, what I share with people as encourage them to take their time and study God’s word. HOW TO ENJOY READING YOUR BIBLE delivers exactly what the title implies. There are 10 tips that are very helpful and easy to implement when reading the Bible.
More than just a book on how to read a Bible HOW TO ENJOY READING YOUR BIBLE (emphasis on your)takes away the negative feelings, apprehensions and perhaps even fear many people may associate with reading the Bible. Reading God’s Word no longer becomes a chore but becomes a time of fellowship with God.
I particularly appreciated Tip #2 “Set Your Expectations Really High” often I think we approach Bible reading in reverse. Other people may appreciate Tip 9 “Go On A 60 Day Adventure.” But it is good to know there are choices as Tip #7 “Read Alone” and Tim #9 “Don’t Read Alone” point out.
Because each tip “Study Guide Tips” questions that can be used as part of a group HOW TO ENJOY READING YOUR BIBLE is great as a Bible Study tool for people who have never read the Bible. It can also be used for people who have tried to read it but gave up or people who read it all the way through once and have yet to do it again. There are so many people who read the Bible in a year as part of their routine but don’t really enjoy the process, this is an excellent book for them.
I recommend this book.
