Overview

A Year of Thinking Deeply about the Good Book provides an introduction and guide for readers contemplating the challenge of reading and studying the Bible over the course of a year. Each chapter highlights the main messages of the books of the Bible and guides readers through commentaries on each of those books. Author John Ash begins each chapter with a key Bible verse, uses his photographs as illustrations, and shares guidance in an approachable manner.

On occasion, the chapters pull together surprising references, bringing an eclectic array of voices into the conversation. The introduction to the gospel of John, for example, moves from Phil Collins, the rock singer and drummer, to Abraham J. Heschel, the Jewish scholar, and then to N. T. Wright, Anglican theologian. This conversation helps to draw readers into a deeper exploration of what the Bible meant in the days of its authors and what its message is for believers in today’s world.

If you find yourself mulling over life’s big questions—wondering how we came to be together in this life, what does God call us to do, why we face a world bent on violence, and what hope can we offer one another—then A Year of Thinking Deeply about the Good Book can take you along a yearlong path of reading the Bible and seeking God’s answers to those big questions.
