of whom shall I be afraid?

Passages Book Review

How Reading The Bible In A Year 
Will Change Everything For You

SUMMARY:  How a few passages a day will change your whole life.
     Many of us would love to read the Bible more often, but we rarely make time for more than a few verses on the run.
     But the Bible was never meant to be read in short segments here and there when you can fit it in.  The Bible is meant to be experienced in sizeable chunks - in passages - and read daily.  It is not a book of mystical incantations, but the story of God's passionate love - for you.  It is not a distant relic, but a best friend offering counsel and companionship - for today.
     Through his own remarkable story, Brian Hardin shows you how reading through the Bible in a year changed his life and how it will change yours too.  Passages goes beyond exploring how the Bible was meant to be read, providing three distinct Bible reading plans to help you get started doing it right now.
     Hardin, whose daily podcast has more than a million listeners a month, guarantees you a life revolution, if you will only commit to a few minutes a day to read through the Bible in a year.
     As you rediscover the joy of reading the Bible, visit and join a community of fellow readers to share your thoughts on your new adventure.

REVIEW: All throughout this book, Brian Hardin encourages you to step out and read the bible.  He tells his personal history, of his own time reading it and how he has grown.  Also included are letters from listeners of his podcast who have been touched and have grown listening to his recordings and reading the bible on their own.  Three different reading plans are listed in the back to give you some options if you are just getting started.  Brian suggests instead of reading one verse at a time to read a couple of chapters together to get a better understanding of what is going on in the passage and see what God is saying to you personally.  It doesn't matter when you get started but that you do.  He suggests reading it out loud or listen to it being read to get a better feel of what the passage is saying.

     This is a good book if you are just getting started reading your bible no matter how long you have been a Christian.  It will give you some good helps and directions on how to get started.
