This book reminds us of how good God is, and how we can learn more about Him by reading His book.
Many in Western society today seems to think they know God, understand what He's like and how He wants us to live, without consulting the only written document we have that provides us all the basic information we need: the Bible. That is why I recommend this book by Wayne Davies. Just as you wouldn't consult a cookbook to repair a computer, the author has not consulted our culture and society's norms to help us understand God. Instead, he's gone straight to the source many people call The Word of God. He then shares his story of discovery in "Top Ten Reasons to Read the Bible Today: The Life Changing Benefits of Daily Bible Reading" because what he experienced changed him. He shares with his reader his love/hate relationship with God. Wayne Davies begins his book by explaining why he wrote it and who should read it. His story is interesting to me because I can see some of my own life story in his. When he talked about different types of people groups who may need this book, I identified with at least two of the groups. The remaining pages are divided into ten short chapters representing the reasons and benefits for reading the Bible. I enjoyed reading this book for many reasons. The first reason I like it is that Mr. Davies uses language that is straight forward and authoritative. He does use some "religious language", but he explains the meaning of most of the terms very well. He was able to avoid, as much as is possible, loaded vocabulary that have vague or ambiguous definitions. His explanations are simple and clear of most cultural nuances. It's nearly impossible to write a book of this nature without reflecting some cultural preferences. But it was obvious to me that his source of information is the Bible. Period. The second reason I like this book is how it reflects the passion and heart the author poured into it. His excitement about the topic is the result of the journey he experienced and explained in the opening preface. There is no doubt for me that Wayne Davies wrote it out of a genuine desire to share what he discovered with his reading audience. I believe in his earnestness. Finally, I can see many ways the short book could be useful for discipleship. Years ago I learned an acrostic applied to the letters that spell BIBLE: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. The Bible is essential to our knowledge of God, biblical history, God's laws, the life of Jesus, and the early days of Christianity. This booklet is like a primer for young Christians or those who want a little more than a cursory explanation of foundational beliefs. Do you know someone seeking information on the basics of Christianity? Give them a copy of this book. Are you acquainted with some young believers who need a short, concise introduction to the basics about God? This would be a good book for them to read. Another way this work could be helpful is to aid in meditation on the foundations of what the Bible teaches us. Many Christians need that once in awhile. It serves as a plumb line to determine how far we may have drifted from the core issues of Christianity. I also feel this book is a good source of encouragement for young and mature Christians both. For all these reasons and more, I highly recommend this book. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary review copy of this book from the author, Wayne Davies. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in ac
