We know the Bible is important, but many of us struggle with it. We're not biblical experts-though we may have started enough reading plans to be really familiar with Genesis. If we're honest, the Bible often intimidates us, confuses us, and reading it doesn't always thrill us. And yet, the Bible is where God reveals his loving character and incredible plan of redemption. In a practical and engaging manner, Matt Smethurst-managing editor of The Gospel Coalition-presents nine heart postures that will prepare you to unpack all that's awaiting you in God's Word. Although there are many great resources on how to read and study Scripture, hardly any focus exclusively on how to approach it in the first place. That's what Smethurst provides in this unique "prelude" to opening your Bible. For without the right heart postures, we're not yet ready to start reading. Review "Matt Smethurst is brilliant and creative. But more than that he is what every Bible teacher should be, and that is faithful. In Before You Open Your Bible, Matt reminds us of the significance of God's Word by focusing on the way we approach it as readers. This book will help you read Scripture in a deeper, more meaningful way." --Russell Moore, president, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention"If you tend to grab your Bible, flip it open, and mumble a quick request for Holy Spirit-help, you are setting yourself up for something less than spectacular. But if you wish to hear the Spirit of Jesus speak life-altering words to you, it will mean laying aside your agenda, rallying your sensibilities, and remembering the majesty of the One who has words for you. Matt Smethurst has written a stellar little book on this rare but important subject. If you desire to approach your Bible as God wants you to, read this and be renewed." --Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center"In our culture of productivity and efficiency, we desperately need to slow down and think about God's Word. This timely book by my friend Matt Smethurst teaches us how to humble ourselves and approach Scripture the right way. Before You Open Your Bible is filled with great wisdom about how you can reconnect with the power of the Christian life: God's Word. After reading this book, get alone with God and his Word, and be amazed at the grace that you find." --Rick Warren, founding pastor of Saddleback Church; author of The Purpose Driven Life About the Author Matt Smethurst is managing editor of The Gospel Coalition, planting pastor of River City Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia, and author of several books. He is married to Maghan and they have three children.
