Many Christians feel guilty when they think of reading the Bible. Though they want to love reading Scripture, they rarely have time for more than a few verses on the run. But the Bible is not meant to be a burden. It is the story of God's passionate love for His children. It is also not a book of mystical incantations. It is a best friend offering counsel and companionship. And it is not a distant relic, but something very near. Near enough, in fact, to be every reader's story. So how do Christians delight in this story rather than see it as a source of failure? The founder of the immensely popular Daily Audio Bible, Brian Hardin shows readers how reading through the Bible in a year will change their life and the lives of others. Passages shows readers how to read the Bible and offers practical ideas for immersing themselves in God's life-giving words. Here readers will discover that reading the Bible can be a breathtaking adventure.
I really liked this book! I have trouble with reading my Bible everyday, even though I always seem to find time to read my devotionals. This book made me realize I'm just avoiding it. It gives good concepts on how to approach Bible reading, and to slowly increase the time you read it each day.

One thing that really excited me was there was a quote from someone in Dallas, Oregon! That may not seem like such a big deal, but Dallas isn't that big so I was very excited to actually see it mentioned in a book.

This book will be staying on my shelves for ears to come, and I'm sure I will be referencing it in those times where Bible reading becomes a chore!

I received this book free for review from LitFuse Blog Tours. I was not required to post an positive review, simply an honest one.
