 General Description:

With persuasive instruction and personal examples, George Martin shows you how to read and understand Scripture in ways that help us hear what God is saying to us and that draw us nearer to him in prayer.

In the most extensive revision yet of his best-selling classic "Reading Scripture as the Word of God," this edition brings God's word to life for beginners through seasoned veterans of Bible study. 

--How can I get more out of reading Scripture?
--What can I do to understand Scripture more clearly?
--How can I hear what God is saying to me through Scripture?
--How should I apply the messages of the Bible to my life?

Thus, the Bible becomes a window to God, so He can speak to our hearts as well as our heads. The book begins with practical suggestions for reading Scripture in order to understand both the context and the purpose for which it was written. It goes on to discuss how God reveals himself through the words of Scripture and the role of the Holy Spirit as He speaks directly to you through the text.

Study guides at the end of each chapter, interesting sidebars and directions to Internet resources will stimulate personal reflection and also provide the basis for small group discussion of this eminently practical, yet heart-centered, approach to understanding the Scriptures.

About the Author - George Martin is the author of 10 books and hundreds of articles and meditations, primarily on Scripture. He founded God's Word Today magazine.

This item received 5 stars overall. A reminder of the treasure we have in Scripture andmust have book on the shelves of every Christian!

Reading God's Word Today, by George Martin, is a clear, thoughtful, and eminently readable book on getting the most out of spending time reading Scripture.  Though brief (less than 200 pages), it is by no means short on substance.  Though written from a Catholic perspective, it is one of the few books, besides the Bible itself, I sincerely wish I could place into the hands of every Christian, Protestant and Catholic alike!

The book is divided into two parts, the first providing a model for how to read Scripture and the second focusing on how God reveals himself to us through it.  Martin is quick to point out that Scripture is to be read in the Christian life devotionally--that is, as part of the ongoing, daily conversation between the Christian and God.  The poi Full Review...
