Glen Scrivener in Volume 2 of Reading Between the Lines takes a look at the New Testament. Over 6 months he looks at a familiar phrase every day, and links it to a New Testament bible passage. Each day has around 2-3 pages of text to read, and undoubtably points to Jesus and his saving grace. These devotions are perfect for anyone who wants to know Jesus better, whether they’ve been a Christian for 5 days or 5 decades.
Presented in a beautiful hardback format, it’s fresh and contemporary, and yet deep and insightful.
Volumes 1 and 2 together complete a full year of undated devotions.

In a page or two every morning, Glen walks you through a phrase and he unpacks it by taking you to the Bible. This book offers you 6 months of daily devotionals that are saturated with the beauty of Christ and the gospel. It offers you insights that will stir your heart to praise God and challenge your mind to ponder His majesty. I really enjoy these devotionals because they aren’t too long or too short. You won’t be overwhelmed with information or left short changed, but you will be better equipped to be a follower of Christ as you are always taken back to God’s Word. This book is a tremendous gift to give to a new Christian or a seasoned saint. Glen has done a tremendous job of connecting the Bible with people’s lives and giving good and practical short readings for people to ponder. Reading this every day will encourage you, build up your faith and make you feel better equipped to read the Bible.
I’m about 3 weeks into this and have found some interesting thoughts and insights. However, I was disappointed to read that he clearly equates meekness with weakness. Doesn’t Scrivener understand that meekness is a strength? I overlooked this at first but day after day he keeps repeating it, to the point of irritation.
