    I have recently found Scripture Union and have been following the Essential path to Bethlehem for my Advent readings. As a pastor, your vision and my vision are on the same path, desiring for believers to develop a life changing relationship with the Living Word through the disciplines of the Written Word. I have recently written a book that is much along the same lines (Word of God Speak). Thanks for your resources, as I continue to pass along links to them to members in my church.

    While the common thread in your projects uses the word essential to emphasise what I can only deam to be importance of teh biblical fact of the Bible. I left a bit perplexed why use do not realize while itemizing what you choose to be importance it is likely that other ” important elements, facts or insights of scripture will go unknowed by the followers of the essential bible blog.
    Needless to say I belive the bible should be read by all in its entirity and not selected summarized passages. A absolute rethink of concept is need by you.
