Bookshelf: The Grand Sweep

Is one of your New Year's resolutions to read the Bible cover to cover this year? It's a common goal and one that usually gets forgotten somewhere around those laws in Leviticus or the lists in Numbers. This year try a guided reading that takes you through the Bible a few chapters at a time with expert commentary and prayers.


The Grand Sweep

by J. Ellsworth Kalas


Read Scripture daily. Respond to Scripture daily. Pray daily.

You want to read Scripture daily; you just need some direction. The Grand Sweep guides you through Scripture so that at the end of 365 days, you will have read every book of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Daily readings include only three to four chapters a day and moves through the Bible in biblical sequence, making this devotional a positive experience even for those just beginning a spiritual discipline. Author J. Ellsworth Kalas also provides a faithful daily summary of readings, but with a devotional quality to encourage warmth of spirit as well as a knowledge of mind. The Grand Sweep also includes selected quotations from Kalas' 35 books.
