In his entertaining and engaging style, Mark Hart (also known as "The Bible Geek") shows readers why Scripture should be central to our life with the Lord. When we become immersed in Scripture, he says, we allow it—not the secular culture—to form our minds and hearts. In the story of the Bible, we find our own story as we discover how much God loves us and desires to save us and dwell among us. This book also considers the place of Scripture in the liturgy, introduces the practice of lectio divina, the prayerful reading of Scripture, and shows how the Scriptures connect to the sacraments.
