Gentle Rain on Tender Grass

Sharon James

Gentle Rain on Tender Grass

Sharon James

$17.99

Paperback

When Moses came to bid farewell to the people of Israel, he summarized God's message to them in a song, opening with the words: 'May my teaching drop as the rain like gentle rain upon the tender grass.' Grass needs regular rainfall, not just the occasional torrent. And so it is with us. 'Gentle rain on tender grass' is a lovely picture of continual, persevering study of the Word of God. There is no substitute for exposing ourselves daily to God's own infallible, authoritative Word.

In a series of readings designed for daily devotions, Sharon James takes the reader through the first five books of the Bible. These five books are foundational to understanding the story of salvation as taught in the rest of the Bible. All the major themes are highlighted and at the end of each day's reading a verse of Scripture has been selected to help focus our thoughts on a particular truth throughout the day.

'What do we want from a book of daily devotions? For one thing, an uncomplicated, easy, well-focused style. And then, can we have biblical teaching in a digestible form? Plus, may we please have encouragement and challenge? A tall order, but Sharon James serves it in abundance - and with a major bonus. Anyone using Gentle Rain on Tender Grass (the title is supplied by Moses) will - almost without noticing it - have been treated to a careful and wise study of the first five books of the Bible. By the final page you may be asking when the next volume will be available!'
- Sinclair Ferguson, Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina, USA; Professor of Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Dallas, Texas, USA

Author information:
Sharon James is a British conference speaker and author. She has degrees in history (Cambridge University) and theology (Toronto Baptist Seminary). She has taught history in the UK and in Malawi. Her husband Bill is pastor of Emmanuel Evangelical Church, Leamington Spa, and they have two children.

When Moses came to bid farewell to the people of Israel, he summarized Gods message to them in a Song, opening with the words: May my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distill as the dew, like gentle rain upon the tender grass. (Deuteronomy 32:2-3). Grass needs regular rainfall, not just the occasional torrent. And so it is with us. Saying I dont have time to study the Bible each day is saying I dont want to listen to the voice of God. When we hear the Word preached it can be like a torrent, drenching our spiritual lives. But gentle rain on tender grass is continual, steady, non-dramatic and refreshing. It is a lovely picture of continual, steady, persevering study of the Word of God. There is no substitute for exposing ourselves daily to Gods own infallible, authoritative Word.
