The Bible Challenge

Read The Bible in a Year

edited Marek Zabriskie


Price: £19.99
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
Published:25 October 2012
It's called The Bible Challenge, but really that's a misnomer because with this book it won't be a challenge, it will be a joy to read the Bible in a year. 365 days of readings from the Old and New Testaments, as well as the Psalms, a couple of questions and a prayer are there, but what sets this book apart and makes it so good to my mind, is the commentary included for each day. Each commentary section comes from one of just over 100 outstanding theologians or church leaders from within the Anglican Communion, many of whom you will be familiar with and a few you won't because they are from all over the globe. What they all have in common, other than being Anglican, is the clearness, depth (if one can use that for a commentary section that is usually less than 500 words) and insight that they offer on the passages. A really fresh book well worth considering for daily use, especially if you are an Anglican, but not only if you are an Anglican!
