Have you ever wanted to read the Bible from cover to cover but found yourself daunted by its sheer volume? Then The Bible Through the Seasons: A Three-Year Journey with the Bible
will help you begin your voyage. By using a structured and relaxed plan over the course of three years, you will be able to read the entire Bible one passage per day.
Author Nicholas J. Connolly introduces every daily reading with a "Firestarter"-a one-minute message designed to ignite the creative imagination. Each day of the week is dedicated to a part of the Bible-the Psalms, the Gospels, etc. The program follows the ancient Jewish lectionary of dividing Genesis to Deuteronomy-known as the Torah-into fifty-four portions read yearly on the Sabbath. The Bible readings are sensitive to solar and sacred seasons.
An appendix provides background material for understanding the Church Year. The Bible Through the Seasons will reveal God's word at a pace comfortable for you.
"For the Christian who intends to grow in faith and ministry, there is no more important resource than reading, studying, and internalizing the biblical message. Nick Connolly's guide helps us do just that "
