The author comes from a somewhat more conservative position on the literal interpretation of the Bible than I do, but that difference doesn't keep me from getting significant food for thought every day.
I highly recommend this devotional for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of what's really in the Bible without reading it from cover to cover.
