BREAD OF HEAVEN helps the reader to have a greater understanding of the timeless truths of Scripture and a deeper appreciation of the grandeur of God. It offers meditations on selected Scriptures which will draw the reader's attention upwards to the Savior. Kieran Beville's daily devotional combines down-to-earth, unstuffy humanity in today's world with a biblical and God-centered approach, and draws on rich theology in a thoroughly accessible way. He addresses not just the intellect and the will, but gets to the heart, our motivational center, through the mind. If your Christian life could benefit from a short, well-written daily blast of Christ's comfort and challenge, get this book and use it!
These short Bible-based meditations are fresh and contemporary. Beville gives to the twenty-first-century reader what earlier authors have given to theirs. Here is practical wisdom that is a helpful guide to stimulate worship and set you thinking as you begin each day with God. For each day of the year, the author has provided the reader with (1) a biblical thought, (2) a daily text, (3) a substantive paragraph, as well as (4) a daily schedule for Bible reading. All of which can be consumed in but a moment yet be considered and meditated on throughout the day. The paragraph for each daily text gives the reader the meaning of the Scripture as well as how it can be applied in our Christian lives. Beville recommends that the reader takes the necessary time to read and meditate on this spiritual food each day.
