Do you long to read God’s Word? To study it? But starting at Genesis 1:1 and going through until Revelation 22:21 seems rather daunting?
Begin with “Deeper Waters” by Denise J. Hughes. No, she won’t give you a synopsis/ Cliff Notes of each book of the Bible and tell you so much that you think you can do without reading The Bible for yourself. You will still need to do that on your own. But she leads you on paths that make it manageable reading. She encourages you with the whys of studying and reading God’s Word as well as some methods.
In “Deeper Waters” she takes a different path than her usual Word Writer Series. She tells of her own struggles not just in reading God’s Word but with her own struggles with God himself. Of her struggles to begin (reading the Bible) and beginning again. As well as the reasons in between and the beauty that can be found in the pages of God’s Word.
It’s her story, and encouragement to read His story.
I will be going back through this book and gleaning from all my underlines and sticky note flags, for myself, as well as using in my own teachings.
I was blessed to be a part of this launch team. I was given a copy of the book in exchange for a unbiased review.
