Christians throughout history have framed their understanding of the Bible within the context of their own culture - but the world of Jesus is not our world.
A Pilgrim's Journey by Marc Turnage will help you explore the people, places, and events of the Bible in their real-world, historical contexts. This 30-day devotional can open the door to the time and culture of God's revelation, enabling Him to speak to you in new and fresh ways.
As you read the Bible through this lens, its message will bridge across time and space to transform how you live in the twenty-first century.
