Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ know it: There is no substitute for the Word of God in our daily lives! Still, many find that the formation of a satisfying, fulfilling discipline in reading and studying God's Word is not easy. In contrast, many fall into a merely regimented or legalistic habit that eventually withers for lack of the Holy Spirit's breath upon it. Others have difficulty finding direction or maintaining focus; besides, we all need help to keep us moving forward through the Word. Bible Book-a-Month #3.
