While many Christians are aware of and even adhere to the church calendar, few understand how it can enrich the way they read the Bible. Realizing this widespread need, respected preacher and scholar John Stott has assembled a new book that will guide readers through the Bible according to the church calendar. Seeking to renew a Trinitarian approach to Scripture, Stott divides these daily reflections into three sections. From September to December, Stott focuses on how God the Father revealed himself in the Old Testament. From January through Pentecost, he focuses on the life of Christ in and through the Gospels. And between May and August, Stott looks at the Holy Spirit in Acts, the epistles, and Revelation. Any Christian seeking to better understand the correlation between the calendar structure and the biblical story will be greatly enriched by this new material.

"I can't think of anyone who has been more effective in introducing so many people to a biblical worldview. He represents a touchstone of authentic biblical scholarship that, in my opinion, has scarcely been paralleled since the days of the 16th century European Reformers."-Billy Graham in Time magazine John Stott is without question one of the most beloved and significant pastors and authors of the last fifty years. Named by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the world's 100 most influential people and as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America, Stott commands a huge following that defies his quiet demeanor. Now, in Through the Bible, Through the Year, Stott offers original, never-before-published reflections on the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. These daily readings take you through the Scriptures with an emphasis on both the "big picture" of the story of God and the nature of God as Trinity. Christians seeking a stronger, holistic grasp on the Bible will treasure this work that overflows with wisdom gleaned from a life of study and reflection by an internationally beloved pastor and scholar. John Stott is an internationally acclaimed preacher and scholar. He is the author of many works, including Basic Christianity and What Christ Thinks of the Church. He lives in London, England.About the Author:
