"I've read the Bible. I've rushed through the Bible. But the best Bible intake involves meditation and application. God wants us to slow down and think about what He has said. Dr. Barnett helps the faithful Bible reader achieve both."
Dr. C. Stewart Holloway, Pastor, FBC Pineville
"In What Now?, Kris Barnett provides a much needed tool to help Christians pursue a growing relationship with God by learning to apply the truth of His Word to everyday life."
Dr. Fred Stone, Pastor, Pickens First Baptist Church, Pickens SC
Past President of the South Carolina Baptist Convention
From the Author
Unlike most writers, I did not set out to write a book. In fact, I had finished half or it before I realized what was taking shape. This book started as a pastoral project, directed toward a need I sensed in my own congregation.
As 2010 approached, I sensed the Lord leading me to challenge my congregation to read through the Bible in a year. I researched different reading plans. I looked for something that would challenge Christians who read the Bible regularly, yet be accessible to Christians unfamiliar with the Bible. The reading plan, included in this book, that offered selections each day from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs seemed to offer the diversity I sought.
After selecting the reading plan, I looked for resources to assist the members of my congregation who accepted the challenge to read through the Bible in a year. From personal experience and observation, I knew that most approached Bible reading for information rather than transformation. I wanted my congregation to move beyond simply reading the word of God and experience the joy of living out the word of God. The search for application based resources yielded little fruit.
Disappointed in the meager results of my search, I decided that I might be able to provide something for my congregation. So, the last week of December in 2009, I started writing application oriented questions for publication in our church bulletin. Throughout 2010, I continued writing these questions for the upcoming week's Bible reading. Those questions provided the foundation for What Now?
So, What Now? comes to you as a simple project, born from pastoral ministry and designed for practical application. Hebrews 4:12 reveals, "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." I hope and pray that What Now? opens your soul and spirit to the Word of God, enabling the Surgeon's scalpel to rearrange your life according to His desire.

Each day there are between 3 and 6 questions that seek to apply to readings to your life. Literally answering the question: What Now?
Having used many Bible reading plans over the last few years that read large chunks of the Bible each day, I appreciate that it is very easy to read through the passages and then move on to something else, without ever having let the Word of God transform you.
I also have used Bible reading plans that contain questions alongside the plan, but usually these questions are more directed towards gaining information from the passages than transformation in your life. This is what sets What Now? apart.
I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
