All in Delight in the Word
Timothy George is a wonderful Church historian. In a recent post on the First Things website, George offers fascinating insights into the role of printing in the Reformation. Since I touched on the subject a week ago, I thought I would share this very good article with you.
A couple of years ago I was introduced by a friend to THE BIBLE PROJECT, and I want you as my readers to be familiar with them too. The brainchild of Dr. Timothy Mackie and Jonathan Collins, THE BIBLE PROJECT communicates solid, engaging, biblical training in a beautifully done video format. These guys are passionate about people reading and knowing the story of the Bible, and I love what they are offering the church!
Friday evening our family received a wonderful gift from dear friends, Daniel and Regina Lynn—the original printing of a book that contained the poem "Christmas Bells" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
. . . to “get” what is going on as the gospels tell about the birth of Jesus, we need to read more carefully, folding a deeper hearing of the story into our experiences of Christmas.
Over the past twenty-five years, studies have demonstrated conclusively the correlation between reading the Bible on a daily basis and personal spiritual health. In fact, according to such studies, no other practice of the Christian life serves as such an accurate predictor of whether a person is thriving spiritually. God’s Word nourishes us, encourages us, leads us, teaches us, equips, and corrects us (1 Pet. 2:2; 2 Tim. 3:16). It offers us words to pray, a language for intimate community with other believers, and a Story for understanding our place in the universe.
