From the Back Cover

"I can't think of anyone who has been more effective in introducing so many people to a biblical worldview. He represents a touchstone of authentic biblical scholarship that, in my opinion, has scarcely been paralleled since the days of the 16th century European Reformers."-Billy Graham in Time magazine John Stott is without question one of the most beloved and significant pastors and authors of the last fifty years. Named by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the world's 100 most influential people and as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America, Stott commands a huge following that defies his quiet demeanor. Now, in Through the Bible, Through the Year, Stott offers original, never-before-published reflections on the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. These daily readings take you through the Scriptures with an emphasis on both the "big picture" of the story of God and the nature of God as Trinity. Christians seeking a stronger, holistic grasp on the Bible will treasure this work that overflows with wisdom gleaned from a life of study and reflection by an internationally beloved pastor and scholar. John Stott is an internationally acclaimed preacher and scholar. He is the author of many works, including Basic Christianity and What Christ Thinks of the Church. He lives in London, England. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

For a heart-rending journey, I recommend this book.

Start with just reading a page a day -- once this becomes a habit, you can breaking out your bible and reading the passage referenced as well as the devotional.

This is one of the best devotional books I've ever used.

While the Bible is central to the Christian faith, polls and surveys have repeatedly shown how little people know about the holy book and how rarely they read it. With John Stott's new book, any Christian can be given a guided tour of the Bible in short doses throughout the year.

The majority of devotional Bible reading books starts in January, but this one is different. While you can pick it up anytime, if you want to start at the beginning and follow to the end, the readings begin the first week of September. Organized in 52-week segments, the readings follow the liturgical church calendar, which divides into three periods, each containing four months. From September to December, Stott focuses on how God the Father revealed himself in the Old Testament. From January through Pentecost, he focuses on the life of Christ in and through the Gospels. And between May and August, Stott looks at the Holy Spirit in Acts, the epistles, and Revelation.

Each day includes an achievable one-page reading with a Bible verse, a brief devotional thought and some further Bible reading with a reference to between three and five verses. Each devotional is a simple yet inspirational focus on a different portion of the Bible from Stott, who has spent a lifetime creating commentaries on various books of the Bible. For each reading, an individual gains an experienced mentor through the difficult and story sections of the Bible with insight from this theologian.

As an example, consider his look into 2 Corinthians during week 44 in the book's third section. The Sunday devotion titled "Power through Weakness" begins, "The lust for power has been a characteristic of the human story ever since Adam and Eve were offered power in exchange for disobedience.

Daily devotionals come in many varieties -- from simple one paragraph reminders of the fundamentals of the Christian faith, to several pages of relatively in-depth bible study on a short passage. Stott's book falls into the latter category. With one page per day, it's not too much to read when time is short, but the thoughts recorded within are clear, concise, and well worth thinking about for the rest of the day.

If you're having trouble spending time in God's word daily (as I was), then I definitely recommend this devotional. Start with just reading a page a day -- once this becomes a habit, you can breaking out your bible and reading the passage referenced as well as the devotional. Regardless though, reading a page from this devotional and spending time discussing it with God is an excellent way to draw nearer to Him.

What if you could read through the Bible shoulder to shoulder with a Bible scholar? Wouldn't the experience keep you motivated and give you an "edge" to keep going? It's what you get with THROUGH THE BIBLE, THROUGH THE YEAR.

Dr. John Stott, best-known for his BASIC CHRISTIANITY gives a fresh, devotional look at the Scriptures. Each day is loaded with spiritual insight and highly recommended.

This book is not exactly what I thought it would be--it is better. I was expecting a Bible reading plan that began on the first day of January with Genesis 1:1 and would conclude on New Years Eve with Revelation 22:21. While providing reflections and devotions for each day of the year, this book provides a refreshing seasonal reading plan. From September until Christmas this book takes the reader on a journey through the Old Testament from the story of creation until the coming of Jesus the promised messiah. From January through April the reader re-discovers the life of Christ through reading and reflecting upon the Gospels. In the months of May through August the reader re-lives the exciting and challenging history of the first Christ-followers as documented in the book of Acts and then continues to read through the rest of the New Testament. This book is written in such an accommodating manner that you can begin reading it at any time during the year (not just in the month of September). Just look up the appropriate day of the year in the book (remember the week numbers in the book begin with the first week in September as Week 1) and begin reading. I have recommended this book to all of my family and friends who visit my website at andrewduarte.com and I recommend it to you as well. You will find yourself drawn closer to God, experiencing a greater understanding of His Word, and encouraged in the faith as you read this book.

Format: Hardcover
From the pen of John Stott, life-long New Testament scholar, Anglican pastor, and evangelical advocate for biblical training of pastor/teachers around the world, comes a very readable book for daily use. Dividing the year according to the Christian Calendar, the author guides the reader through an overview of the Bible, and concludes each page with personal reflection and application. Scripture references are provided for further reading. Superb!!!

John Stott takes you through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation with a concise review of the revelation of God through His Word and the prophecy of the coming Messiah through the entire Old Testament and the fulfillment of the prophecy through His incarnation, life of teaching and healing ministries, His crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and promised return as depicted in Revelation.

Can't find a better study for those seeking to understand the Bible and God's plan for forgiveness of sin, the Spirit-filled life and blessed hope through Him for eternal life.
