by Sandy Kirby Quandt
In her book, God’s Call to a Deeper LIfe, Nancy Taylor works her way through the Bible in a year’s worth of Scripture a day. She paraphrases a passage, presents her interpretation of how God might be speaking to the reader through that Scripture, and offers suggestions for the reader to meditate on for further reflection. Just as the author paraphrased each scripture in her devotions, she suggests the reader do the same to personalize the passage and make it their own.
One of her stated goals in this book is for each of us to listen to God’s voice in Scripture. She suggests we read familiar passages in the Bible with fresh eyes; to hear God’s voice in new ways.
Beginning with the Psalms and ending with Revelation, the book touches on Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Isaiah, Jeremiah, several Minor Prophets, the four Gospels, and the letters of Paul, James and Peter.

Tyndale provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
