Overview

Writing in the Margins: Connecting with God on the Pages of Your Bible by Lisa Nichols Hickman

No other time-honored spiritual practice is as immediate, raw, and engaged with Scripture as writing--responding to God--in the margins of the Bible. Composers like Bach to theologians like Barth, botanists and saints--all have written their thoughts directly in their Bibles. In doing so they engaged their fullest selves with our most significant text.

Some people have lived with Scripture all their lives and yet feel estranged from it. This book inspires a new encounter with “the living
Word”--and jump-starts a deep, creative, and hands-on approach to reading Scripture.

As you sit, with pencil, pen, crayon, or marker in hand and Bible in lap, at whatever edges of life you are living within, now that invitation is yours. The creative practice of writing in the margins creates a divine conversation that transforms and guides. Meet God in the margins. Let God shape your character from the living interaction on the pages of your Bible.

Writing in the Margins is a book about making connections on the pages of your Bible--and introduces a devotional and scriptural path of engagement that is life-changing.

Not what I thought it would be. Not as in depth as I had hoped. Vague and suggestive - wanted specific and tecnique. Just not for me.
