Some people like to think of the Bible as The Good Book -- a religious resource that provides comfort and inspiration when you need it: Psalm 23 at funerals; I Corinthians 13 at weddings; great stories for kids -- like "David and Goliath" and "Daniel in the Lions' Den." Others go beyond the nicety of The Good Book to the religion of The Holy Bible. To them The Holy Bible is an icon that symbolizes a sacred tradition, a religious institution that extends from antiquity to modernity. But Jesus, the Word of God made flesh, offers more to us. According to author Douglas D. Webster and this insightful book, our challenge is to internalize the Word of God -- not only to take it seriously, but to engage it personally and ask what God is saying to us each day through its words. When we ask the Lord to speak to us from the Bible, Webster says we are opening a dialogue with God that will bring both comfort and challenge to every area of our lives. This daily interaction with The Living Word assuredly will open to each honest seeker the relationship of a lifetime. Book jacket.
