Review:
I don't know about most of you but I've always found reading the Bible to be somewhat of a chore, an item I do just to check it off the list. It's not that I didn't want to read the Bible but I never could enjoy it as I knew I should. This book, How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible is so helpful and if anyone is struggling with the same things I am I would recommend that you read it too.

Keith Ferrin, the author of this book, was a Christian for about twenty years before he actually started enjoying his Bible. And it all began with hearing a man recite one of the gospels with such passion that the stories came alive. Because of one man, Keith's life was changed forever and because of that change we now have a book that will inspire and influence many more.

In How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible you will learn numerous tips for Bible reading. There are Bible reading plans, study outlines, and so much more that will help you get started on this incredible journey.

I've read many testimonies of people who came to really enjoy reading their Bible but none of them made me want to dig into my Bible as much as this book. I'm one of those people who likes to have clear directions and steps before I undertake a project and I think that's what many of the books were lacking. After reading this book I felt like it was a feasible mission and definitely a worth while one!
