Author Art Toalston felt that "divine nudge" that made him wonder what verses Leestma--and other highly motivated successful, and visible Christian role models--might cite as most pivotal to their lives. Devoted Christians countrywide--entertainers, politicians, pastors, sports figures, and more--responded to his simple inquiry; the result is a remarkable collection of devotional messages to fill the whole year with the daily wisdom and counsel of Scripture.
Each day features a new verse, with a brief introduction to its contributor and to his or her personal story. In their own voices, these extraordinary people illuminate the special relevance of the verses that have guided and changed their lives: former president Jimmy Carter finds in Ephesians 4:32 the message of forgiving love and kindness that has supported him in his worldwide peacekeeping efforts; Olympians Jennifer Azzi and Kim Oden gather strength, inspiration, and comfort from the passages dearest to them; Mary Kay Ash, of Mary Kay Cosmetics, looks to Psalm 56:3 for guidance in crisis; and Fred Rogers, of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, finds inspiration in Corinthians 1:25 when showing and sharing god's love with the smallest of children.
Revealing key moments of trial and transformation in their lives, these luminaries share their person experience of Scripture and show how their favorite verses have brought them into a more genuine, authentic relationship with God. Illuminating the deep relevance of the Bile to our own experience, Lamp Unto My Feet shines with insight to encourage and inspire everyone-every day of the year.From the Back Cover:

From Billy Graham, international evangelist:
John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
"Someone has called (my favorite verse) a miniature Bible. The word 'whosoever' in this verse means the whole world. Whatever the color of a person's skin, whatever language he speaks, God loves him and is willing to save him."
From Barbara Mandrell, Grammy-winning country singer:
Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
"If there's a decision to be made, I simply put it in God's hands and things just begin to fall into place."
