Go…go now and get His Word Alone!! I honestly have to say this book is one of the best books I have ever read on this subject!! As soon as I started reading it I told my husband, “I LOVE this book already!!” It is a call to put down your Bible studies and pick up your Bible, but it is much more than that. It is a step by step guide in how to do just that.
You see the author, Summer Lacy, doesn’t just tell you that you SHOULD do this…she tells you WHY and, more importantly, she tells you HOW. Each chapter ends with an exercise for you to do, which many will find extremely helpful. It really makes you see how Bible studies, while valuable in their own way, can lead you to reading ABOUT the Bible through the lens of other people’s opinions and insights vs. what God wants to speak to YOU directly.
The Bible is a book about God but it is also how God speaks directly to YOU and you lose that intimacy with the Word when you only get fed what other people took from it. It is a call to move away from being fed the milk of the Word and starting to feed yourself from the meat of it.
I am SO in love with this book, because this has been something I have been passionate about for a long time, that I am going to sit down and read it again. I was writing notes in the margin before I ever got out of the Introduction!! The author writes beautifully and poignantly (with some humor along the way) so that it is actually a pleasure to read.
I have long been a person who goes directly to the Bible but I started off with Bible studies and I know personally the difference going directly to the Word has made in my life. God has spoken to me in so many ways because I was in His Word and He will do the same for you and this book is an excellent way to learn how if you are someone who has been intimidated by the Bible.
I am linking the book below! Please consider getting a copy for yourself or for someone you know who could benefit from it. Thank you to Summer Lacy and Rockenbaugh Mountain Revival for giving me the opportunity to review this amazing book! It was such a pleasure to read and I wish you great success with it.
