A daily devotional that provides an accessible way into the whole Bible story.

Many of us have favourite Bible verses that we draw comfort from, but we don't always know their context or understand how they fit into the main story arc of the Bible. Tracing the big picture of God's story through the key themes and events from Genesis to Revelation allows us to see the abundant riches in the word of God.

As you read the unfolding story day by day, you can encounter God in all his glorious holiness and faithfulness and lift your eyes again to his plans and purposes for the world and be reminded that Jesus is indeed the hope of the world. If you have ever struggled to read the Bible from cover to cover, then this devotional will help you find a way in to God's big story and help you fall in love with Jesus all over again.

Q&A with Naomi Reed

Why did you decide to write A Time to Hope?
Twelve years ago, I read the Bible all the way through, from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. It was wonderful! I loved seeing all the connections. The Bible is God's vast, sweeping story about his plan for his world. And in the Bible, we see his character - his goodness and faithfulness and justice and patience and plan, through the Lord Jesus. I found it so helpful to read the Bible quickly, as a single narrative, and notice all of it pointing to Jesus. So then I thought it would be great to be able to capture the sweep of the Bible in an easy-to-read devotional book.

What makes this book different from other devotions?
Most other devotional books seem to be structured around themes or ideas, using Bible verses in support of those themes. A Time to Hope is unique in that the 365 daily devotions work systematically through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, and they cover every book and theme in the Bible. God's Word is an ancient, complex text, so it's important to stop and consider who is speaking to whom, and when and why. We need to remember that this is God's long story, rather than treating it as a self-help manual, or reducing it to being all about us. I also think that in society, nowadays, we tend to be time poor and scattered, so our tendency is to reduce complex ideas and concepts to tiny memes or slogans or quotes. In doing so, we can miss the context of God's plan throughout history. A Time to Hope reminds us of the weight of God's long story, and our need for Jesus, to redeem and transform.

And what do you think being a missionary in another culture has brought to your understanding of the Bible for A Time to Hope?
Serving for six years in Nepal changed me. It helped me to read the Bible through different eyes and within a different language and worldview. It helped me to see how limited my own experiences and understanding of God had been.

What do you hope readers will most get out of reading this book?
I hope they will be drawn back to the plan and promises of God, through the Lord Jesus, in a wonderful, life-changing way. I hope they will profoundly know the deep hope we share in Christ.

In summary, how would you describe A Time to Hope?
A Time to Hope is a daily devotional book that draws people back to the whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, reminding the reader of God's long story and ongoing plans and purposes in Christ. It's a profound, immersive experience of reading the Bible, and letting the Bible read us.
