Recently a youngish person asked how to go about reading the Bible. I replied that some like to start with the Book of John, but it didn't matter where one starts. Just read it all, and when you finish, do it over again.
I've recently been quite disappointed with the quality of books available to us on tape, and the answer to that, of course, is to read The Book. It's entertaining,uplifting, thought-provoking, and a good idea.
I'm convicted, now, thinking of my answer to that question. When I asked a gym buddy how people in her denomination deal with adversity, she replied, "They stick their nose in The Book."
