Crossway Books & Bibles For the Love of God: A Daily Companion for Discovering the Riches of God's Word - eBook

In a world that views absolute truth, right and wrong, and salvation as being subject to individual interpretation, the Bible's unwavering proclamations and miraculous stories seem obsolete in modern times. But it is not God's Word that has changed. Indeed, its relevancy and its power to transform lives are intact. What has changed is the number of people who consult it. 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.

As with its companion volume, For the Love of God: Volume 1, this devotional contains 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 so doing, D. A. Carson completes the work he began in the first book.

In an effort to help preserve biblical thinking and living, D. A. Carson has also written thought-provoking comments and reflections regarding each day's scriptural passages. And, most uniquely, he offers you perspective that places each reading into the larger framework of history and God's eternal plan to deepen your understanding of his sovereignty---and the unity and power of his Word.

D. A. Carson is Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has taught since 1978. He earned a doctorate in New Testament Studies from Cambridge University. He is an active guest lecturer, and he has written or edited more than forty books. He and his wife, Joy, have two children and live in the north suburbs of Chicago.

Volume 1 and 2 are excellent resources for anyone desiring to know more about the Scripture in an overview fashion,comparing like passages in the Old and New Testaments.

I'm not the type of person who usually bothers to endorse devotional books, but I have had the opportunity to read FOR THE LOVE OF GOD (vols. 1 and 2) by D.A. Carson and consequently, I've been endorsing it to Christians from all walks who take their relationship with God very seriously. These devotionals attempt to return the focus back to Scripture, not the comments of the devotional writers. It also attempts to give the reader the "bigger picture" of Scripture (i.e. the whole counsel of God), so that one's vision would not be constrained to passages and verses, something that might give the impression that the Bible talks about many unrelated things. This approach clearly sets it apart from many devotionals.
