Book Review

In this book of daily readings for 183 days (six months), David Bugden has achieved his aim to ‘lay a good foundation’ for ‘new converts and those young in the faith’. But mature believers would also benefit from these well-written and attractively presented Bible notes.

The notes are based on the NKJV but could easily be used with another Bible version. Each day there is a question to which readers are invited to write their answer. There are also suggested evening readings, without explanations, taken from Psalms, Proverbs, Philippians and 1 Peter.

Week 1 covers different passages – such as John 1 and Hebrews 1 – to focus on the Lord Jesus Christ, who he is and what he has done. Then follow readings and comments from the Gospel of John; Genesis 1-11; the providence of God in the lives of Ruth, Jonah and Haggai; the Acts of the Apostles; and 1 Thessalonians.

The author mentions various Bible reading schemes for use after the reader has completed this six-month introductory course. I would encourage the author to write further daily Bible notes!

Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock

These three punchy books address pressing issues: what the Bible teaches about lust (on desire), about homosexuality (on Biblical sexuality) and about transgenderism (on identity). The trilogy approach keeps each book short and focused while dovetailing effectively. Each book has…

Who Am I? Human Identity and the Gospel in a Confusing World
Thomas Fretwell

In today’s secular society, religion is often regarded as without rational or scientific basis, and therefore irrelevant to life in the modern world and all areas of public engagement. If that is our social context, then it is no wonder…
