How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible By Keith Ferrin

I think everyone has struggled with reading their Bible at one time or another. I know I have. When I do I feel guilty. This is God’s love letter to me, shouldn’t I be enjoying it? What is wrong with me? Even though I know I should be doing it in obedience to Him, I hate finding myself reading “just because I am supposed to.”
This book is perfect to overcome those “blah” times in the Word.
Ferrin gives 10 helps that will not only make your time in the Scripture more of a pleasure but also more profitable without making it a chore. It is short, well written, plus very easy to read and implement the ideas!
The author brings out two very important truths we tend to forget. 1. Bible reading is God talking to me. 2. Prayer is me talking to God. In other words it is you spending time with the most important person in your life (or should be), your Heavenly Father. Bible reading isn’t an item on your to-do list to check off but building a close relationship with the Lord.
I was so inspired and encouraged by these ideas! I see how there have been areas I have failed in my quite time. I was present (sort of) with the Lord but not truly a participant. No wonder those times were stale and I seemed to walk away with little.
There are study guides, further scriptures to pursue, prayers, Bible reading plans and even challenges! I am so excited to start reading God’s Word with a fresh start! If I ever slip back to my old habits I can just refer back to this book! It is becoming a permanent fixture in my library!
This little book is a treasure chest! It is great for new believers, old believers, young and old people alike! I think every Christian should read this! You will be glad you did!
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
