Author(s): John R. W. Stott
Using the church calendar as a framework, Through the Bible Through the Year explores in 365 days the whole biblical story from creation to the end times. The readings are broken up into weekly themes, and accord with the seasons of the church year. Here is every essential Christian teaching in a single volume. Each devotion is based on a key passage of Scripture, and includes biblical references for further reading. - September to December covers the period from creation to Christ: an overview of the Old Testament. - January to April provides an overview of the Gospels. - May to August provides an overview of Acts, the Letters, and Revelation.
"I can't think of anyone who has been more effective than John Stott in introducing so many people to a biblical world view. He represents a touchstone of authentic biblical scholarship." -- Billy Graham 20060101 "Stott's mission is to pierce through all the encrustations and share direct contact with Jesus." -- New York Times 20060101
