Is this book a commentary for those who are not clergy? Is it a help for Sunday school teachers - when they feel a bit 'dry'. Is it a book of daily readings? If so, perhaps it's a bit more wordy than usual. It might be a good going-away gift for your son or daughter, a niece or nephew, who is going off to University for the first time - or the one who will be staying at home. A young Christian couple might appreciate it as a Wedding Gift. It might even cheer up the minister himself on a Saturday night, betimes This book can be whatever you want it to be, so long as it meets a need in your life. It has a thousand uses. Home study groups and suchlike will find a lot of the work has been done for them.
