Review 1 for Day by Day With J.B. Phillips: Selected Readings for Daily Reflection
Date:August 8, 2008
This highly credentialed high church Anglican pastor is no stuffy intellectual. His faithfulness to historical orthodoxy, his intelligence, compassion, practicality, humanity, his startling glimpses of the realm of the spirit, and his great gift for the written word make this daily devotional a timeless classic. Based on years of scholarship and practical experience as an Anglican priest counseling parishioners, teaching a young adult Bible class during the Blitz of World War 2, translating the New Testament from Koina Greek into contemporary English, and some surprising personal encounters, J.B. Phillips inspires, comforts, and encourages, reminding us that the God of the Bible is real and accessible today, and always.
