I have always enjoyed reading my Bible, but this book gave me a whole new appreciation for really looking at my time in the Word as spending time really getting to know the Lord on a more intimate level.
Relationship is what Keith emphasizes in this excellent book. The two things that really stuck with me through the whole book is how we should treat our relationship with the Lord like we would a good friend and that, while it's important to be instructed from the Bible, it's more important to really cultivate our relationship with God.
Another thing I really liked was all the study tips at the end of each chapter, the questions at the end of the chapters and the Scriptures he suggests we meditate on to soak into our hearts. I found all this to be extremely encouraging and helpful in really putting into practice what the book teaches.
I learned so much and saw so many ways in which reading the Bible could be enjoyable. It's so true that the Bible really is a great story and we have the tendency to forget that. I love that the author really helps us to see the Bible for what it is - the greatest story of all time written by an almighty God who wants to know us and whom wants to be known intimately.
I can't say enough good about this book. If you really want to enjoy reading your Bible and get into a deeper relationship with the Lord, this is the perfect book! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it for everyone!
