Best-selling author Richard Foster, along with the foremost names in Christian spirituality and biblical scholarship come together to provide a unique Bible that rediscovers Scripture as living text, rich with insights into how to live our lives more intimately with God.
If you have struggled to learn what it means to live your life <i>with</i> God or if you have been looking for a fresh way to read the Bible, <i>The Life with God Bible</i> will help you rediscover Scripture as living text, rich with insights into how to live your life more intimately with the Creator.
Spearheaded by bestselling authors Richard J. Foster (<i>Celebration of Discipline</i>) and Dallas Willard (<i>The Divine Conspiracy</i>), along-side the foremost names in Christian spirituality and biblical scholarship, <i>The Life with God Bible</i> introduces the concept of the "with-God life," a model for seeing the whole of Scripture as the unfolding story of God's plan for our loving relationship with God. This theme weaves throughout the essays and study notes, while the concrete practices and Spiritual Disciplines, such as prayer, worship, fasting, and celebration, will help you discover a deeper relationship with God and transform you into the likeness and character of Jesus.
Combining the depth of a study Bible with the warmth of a devotional Bible, <i>The Life with God Bible</i> makes Scripture come alive as you learn to read the text in a fresh way, not as something to be mastered, but as a story to enter and a lifestyle to pursue.
