Item description for For the Love of God: Volume Two: A Daily Companion for Discovering the Riches of God's Word by D. A. Carson...

Overview
In a world that views absolute truth, right and wrong, and salvation as being subject to individual interpretation, the Bible's unwavering proclamations and miraculous stories seem obsolete in modern times. But it is not God's Word that has changed. Indeed, its relevancy and its power to transform lives are intact. What has changed is the number of people who consult it. Now more than ever the need to read the Bible, to understand the big picture of its storyline, and to grasp the relevance this has for your life is critical. As with its companion volume, For the Love of God-Volume 1 , this devotional contains a systematic 365-day plan, based on the M'Cheyne Bible-reading schedule, that will in the course of a year guide you through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the rest of the Old Testament once. In so doing, D. A. Carson completes the work he began in the first book. In an effort to help preserve biblical thinking and living, D. A. Carson has also written thought-provoking comments and reflections regarding each day's scriptural passages. And, most uniquely, he offers you perspective that places each reading into the larger framework of history and God's eternal plan to deepen your understanding of his sovereignty-and the unity and power of his Word.

Reviews - What do customers think about For the Love of God, Volume 2: A Daily Companion for Discovering the Riches of God's Word?

Not yet ready for Kindle  Sep 23, 2008
This is a revised review. Mine was the first review posted in the Kindle section for this book. The next day, I found several reviews for PRINTED EDITIONS of this book posted.

Nobody has refuted what I've said about the Kindle version!

---------------------------

I have the printed versions of both volumes
For the Love of God: A Daily Companion for Discovering the Riches of God's Word, Volume 1 and
For the Love of God: A Daily Companion for Discovering the Treasures of God's Word
of this wonderful series of meditations on scripture, whose schedule follows Robert Murray M'Cheyne's through the Bible in a year, and I give THEM 5 stars.

Unfortunately, the Kindle version is a technical disaster.

First, the "schedule" of readings in the front of the book consists of scanned images-- not searchable text. (Some of the images are even crooked!)

Second, each daily meditation is presented WITHOUT its date.

This means that you can't easily find the meditation for a random date. Instead, you need to look at the scanned images near the front of the book and write down the four passages (usually about a chapter each) and do a search (of your entire Kindle collection!) for "Genesis 18" (or whatever).

If the publisher would put the dates with each meditation, that would be a quantum leap forward (to 4 stars!). Give us a text-based schedule of meditations, and I'll give it 5!
 
Amazing Devotional  Aug 15, 2008
This has been one of the most inspirational devotional I have read. It is definitely a great tool to use when reading the word of God.
 
Best Devotion Book Ever  Jul 21, 2008
D.A. Carson has not reinvented the wheel, but has reminded us of a reading plan from the 1800's that guides us through reading the Bible in one year (plus NT and Psalms a second time). His commentary is rich in gaining insight to the whole Bible. I am in third year of using this reading plan and only wish I had started 40 years ago.
 
An excellent one-year devotional  Jan 4, 2008
In a day when "devotional" has come to mean lovely thoughts bearing little relationship to the biblical passage, this book challenges, encourages, and draws the reader into the text. Based on Robert Murray McCheyne's one-year reading plan, Carson brings to life one of the four passages read each day. I can't wait to get vol. 2,
 
Extremely Gratifying  Oct 17, 2007
Carson has wisdom that I was continually surprised with each new devotion. He has an amazing ability to place a chapter in its biblical context, helping the reader understand why it's important. His writing is very well crafted as he puts profound concepts in simple terms. I highly recommend this book for the spiritual edification of all believers and unbelievers alike.
