In a world that views absolute truth, right and wrong, and divine judgment as being either outdated or subject to each person's definition, the Bible's absolute statements, direct warnings, and fantastic stories seem more out of touch with each passing year. But it is not God's Word that has changed; indeed, its relevancy and its power to transform lives are still intact. What has changed is the number of people who consult it. Even the impact of His holy Word is dulled if we neglect to open our Bibles and seek Him there.

Now more than ever, the need to read the Bible, to understand the big picture of its storyline, and to grasp the relevance this has for your life is critical.

Within these pages is a systematic 365-day plan, based on the M'Cheyne Bible-reading schedule, that will in the course of a year guide you through the New Testament and Psalms twice, and the rest of the Old Testament once. In an effort to help preserve biblical thinking and living, D. A. Carson has written edifying comments and reflections regarding each day's scriptural passages. And, most uniquely, he offers perspective that places each reading into the larger framework of history and God's eternal plan--to deepen your understanding of the unity and power of His Word.

More than a devotional guide, "For the Love of God will open the Bible to anyone who wants to: understand Scripture in its context and the larger framework of God's kingdom know the God of the Bible discover how He works in the world and the lives of those who love Him

The insights here will help you view the Bible for all that it is--as both the complete and inspired history of redemption, as well as the revelation of God and Hischaracter. And this book's through-the-Bible-in-a-year reading plan will renew your urgency not only to delve deeply into God's Word, but to study it daily so that your mind will be shaped and informed by what God Himself says and sees.
