Allberry and Keller ask great questions and draw excellent practical implications from each daily devotional. It is recommended by the author's that you take notes and record the following for all 90 studies: (1) Record the highlight of the passage - the truth about God that most struck you; (2) Record the questions you have about what you have read and your best attempts at answering them; (3) Record the way/s you want to change on the basis of how the Holy Spirit is prompting you to change your attitudes and actions on regard to what you have read from Scripture; (4) After you have finished the study, record one sentence summing up how God has spoken to you through His Word; and lastly (5) Pray a short prayer in response to what you have been instructed to believe and do.
I highly recommend this devotional - especially for new Bible students. It will guide you into becoming a "doer of the Word" as James 1:22 instructs.
Keller tackles Romans and Allberry takes John and James.
These devotions originally appeared in Explore Quarterly 66, 67, & 72 and are very brief.
In the Introduction, Carl Laferton explains that these devotions are to be “open Bible” (7) – that is, the reader is to have his Bible open and apply the devotional reading – one to two pages – to the Bible – and respond on the final page of each devotional, where one has an entire page to write thoughts and questions.
Laferton suggests reading the text for each devotion and then record what struck you in the passage, questions you have, how you ought to change in response to the text, a one sentence summary, and a reflective prayer (8), but one could proceed through it in other manners.
The devotions are Socratic – statements and then questions to prompt the reader’s response. And they are well done.
My one complain with this beautiful hard-cover volume with bookmark is that the text of the Scripture is not printed in the devotion.
Despite the composition of the devotions, it is too easy for a faithless and lazy generation to read the devotion and skip the Scripture. With it before the reader, it would be more likely that these devotions would accomplish their purpose with the average reader.
That being said, this is a worthwhile volume by faithful men, and I look forward to future volumes in the series.
