Editorial Reviews for this title:
Many Christians hunger for a consistent devotional life but also want their time with God to be one of study in which they further their knowledge and understanding of God's Word. Now they can have both in one engaging book. Written by a popular father-son team, Red Letters is a book of Bible study devotionals based on some of the most memorable words of Jesus, such as "follow me", "not by bread alone," and the Lord's Prayer. With more than fifty-two devotionals, including a special section for Holy Week, readers can choose to read Red Letters in daily or weekly formats. Each devotional also has special sections and sidebars, like Greek Peek, Quotes to Note, and Dare to Compare, that give readers further nuggets of knowledge.
Jesus had quite a way with words. A man on a journey, a shepherd with his flock, a woman sweeping a floor-each of these characters took on new meaning as Jesus spoke of them. Whether he was sharing colorful stories, asking pointed questions, or serving up short sayings rich with insight and understanding, people from all over would flock to his side to hear him speak. Even today people find encouragement, hope, and faith in Jesus' enduring, memorable words. Red Letters is an inventive twist on studying the Bible; it's a devotional with a difference. With more than 50 sections covering nearly 150 of Jesus' sayings, the authors make the narratives and characters come alive. Questions, ideas for meaningful reflection, and dozens of interactive sidebars will help you hear these words again and in a whole new way. Whether you read this book daily, two or three times a week, or even once a week with a small group, you're sure to gain a new appreciation, a new friend, and perhaps a new Lord. William J. Petersen and his son Randy Petersen have each authored and coauthored more than thirty books, including 100 Amazing Answers to Prayer and 100 Bible Verses That Changed the World.
