In Christian literature, many devotionals are a dime a dozen, with little or no substance or any true difference between them. This is not the case with the newer series titled Explore By The Book produced by The Good Book Company. Explore By The Book takes a unique approach which is truly a breath of fresh air when it comes to daily devotionals. This approach is called termed the “Open Bible” technique, meaning that a person needs to have their own Bible open for the whole devotional since the scripture text is not printed in the text. This method is needed in a society that devalues personal interaction with the Word of God. This in combination with an inductive method of Bible study makes the Explore By The Book series a must add to your Bible reading plans. Furthermore the 90 day format is a habit forming tactic which will aid the reader in committing to a new Bible study regimen.
One of the newest entries into the series is titled Judges, Galatians, and Ephesians with Timothy Keller and Richard Coekin authoring the study. They have split the writing duties with Keller providing the study on Judges and Galatians and Coekin writing the study on Ephesians. Both of these men are renowned authors and theologians making this study one in the can’t miss category. Keller is also no stranger to the Good Book Company having authored the Galatians for You devotional commentary for the For You series, and Coekin has author the Ephesians commentary in the same series. Needless to say this devotional is theological faithful to orthodox Christianity and practical in its application.
With regard to the devotional itself, the most notable part is the subject matter. The book of Judges is not normally a book of the Bible which is taught on or written about in devotional works, yet the pastoral care and wisdom that Keller writes with in the Judges section makes this devotion not only a must read but one that every Christian should be flocking to. Lastly this commentary is not only for the seasoned saint nor is it primarily for the new Christian, this is a devotional which a Christian anywhere in their walk with Christ will find helpful for their sanctification.
