Transform Your Quiet Time
Today’s world is all about now—a fast-moving, high-speed, on-demand lifestyle. But has this pace changed how we study the Bible?

Our relationship with God is a journey, a walk where we grow closer to him each day. So it makes sense that reading and understanding scripture is a continual experience, not just a moment.

This innovative devotional is designed to change how you interact with God’s Word. The Message: Solo revolves around lectio divina, or “divine reading,” an ancient approach to exploring Scripture updated for today’s readers. Each devotion delivers a unique, contemplative study that will encourage you to:
  • Read: Uncover biblical wisdom and revelations as you learn to read without the typical limitations that often hinder Bible reading.
  • Think: Immerse yourself in the passages as you place yourself in the story or meditate on words and phrases.
  • Pray: Connect with him through listening prayer and praise as you encounter new ways to communicate with God.
  • Live: Rest, reflect, or act as you discover how to take the Word with you throughout the day.
Features include:
  • An introduction to the lectio divina style of study
  • Guided devotions with a day for reflection every week
  • A topical index for finding issues that impact your life
  • Numbered devotions so you can start anytime and never fall behind

I got this for my daughter's Easter Basket. It has a great message and it's easy to read. She won't tell me if she enjoys it but I read through it & felt like it was really down to earth and easy to follow. It allows you to go as deep into the passage as you want. It makes the Bible really accessible for young ones! It gives them plenty to read for a while if they read it daily. I feel like if I put it out there hopefully she will pick it up and get something from it even if she won't let me know about it. This is a great product for that and who knows maybe one day I'll catch her reading it!:)

I was on a simple bible devotional book hunt, when I locked my eyes on Solo. It is geared for younger adults, however I am young at heart and while I love my NIV bible study bible..I needed more organization in my studies, less confusion and some direction...Along with church, fellowship and my NIV bible. The book is a great starting point and does simplify it...My suggestion is that you read it with the NIV bible or bible of your choice.. Reading the full scripture after using solo...then take time not so much for you. But for God...I believe that whatever works for you , go for it. If it means creating a closer relationship with God, that is what he loves, and it's all he ever wants from us. Just remember not to make the study and try not to concentrate on just YOU.. it is not really a solo experience, Its about knowing God and what his plan is for you, and being still, listening to the words, and how he shows you in your daily life , how to apply the lessons to daily living. Matthew 7:7 Ask, Seek, Knock.

a good approach to daily devotion, study, and prayer -- 4-step process that guides readers through reading, thinking critically about, and meditating on the passage, as well as steps to take or things to think about to apply the lesson to daily life just as a matter of preference -- Solo is based on a very contemporary translation (the Message), which I found to be a bit too casual or colloquial for my taste, almost making it seem like an overly simplistic translation -- I ended up referring to my own NIV Bible for the passages, rather than reading the excerpt in the book

For those of you that do not like to read the Bible or just starting to read the Bible. This book is an excellent resource to get you started. The Message translation is so easy to read and helps one to understand the meaning of the writer. The application portion Read, Think, Pray Live; very well set up. Since starting this study God has been very present in my everyday life.

I've just started my Christian journey and wanted to pick up a Bible. I popped into Barnes and Noble today and couldn't stop looking at Solo, so I picked it up...and eventually purchased it. Having read several of the entries so far, I'm really excited about it. For the first time, I feel like I'll be really developing a relationship with God and already I feel one step closer.
