My Review:

I have been a Christian since the age of 13, and grew up in a Christian home all my life. However, that does not mean it has always been easy to sit down and read my Bible. Sometimes it has been easy for sure, but other times (particularly when I "had" to read it as a textbook in Bible college) it has been almost a chore (especially, honestly those geneologies and mega long names). So how can one really enjoy reading God's word and apply it to our everyday lives? 

Author Keith Ferrin does a fantastic job sharing 10 tips to make reading God's word more enjoyable than most find it to be. My favorite part of the book was the 60 Day journey you can do. I am in the process of doing it with the Book of Philippians and its been so life changing!

If you are a student of the Bible, whether its a new thing for you or you have read the Bible for years, this is a fantastic resource that every Christian needs to read. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
