He began pairing Bible verses and prayers on posters for people to walk around and ponder during worship. The response to those posters led to this Bible. "Pray the Scriptures Bible" shows that the entire Word of God teaches us how to pray. "Pray the Scriptures Bible" is God's Word Translation which works to translate the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek texts to their closest natural English equivalent. Responsive prayers flow down the outside of every page covering every stretch of Scripture. Every Book of The Bible has an introduction that alerts you to the setting and overarching theme of a book to help you enter into the situation that drives your responsive prayers. Each introduction also highlights what you can expect to gain by praying a specific Bible book. This a wonderful version of The Bible that we will use constantly. Pastor Johnson has done a truly magnificent job with it. Not only can we use it but we can give it as gifts to our friends and family.
