Reviews - What do customers think about Teach Us To Number Our Days?
This is a book that I will read, over and over again. Aug 24, 2009
All of David Roper's books are excellent, but I believe this to be one of his best. In "Teach Us to Number Our Days," he clearly communicates the Word of God and the words of the Spirit using both his immense Biblical knowledge and his personal, experiential wisdom. The rich, concise writings in the book are filled with Biblical references, poems, personal narratives and lasting practical application.
The tenor of this book tends to speak to those that are in their advanced years. However, I am entering the "mid-life" era of life and I found this book to be an extremely rich resource for my spiritual journey. There are things in this book that I needed to hear so that the "number of my days," honor God and are fruit bearing for the Lord.
I read this book as I would a devotional reader--one chapter a day. The content of each chapter was so rich I found myself reflecting and meditating upon its precepts throughout the day. This book served as a significant instrument in my personal journey of spiritual formation in Christ.
Personally, I think that David Roper's books will stand the test of time and take their place in the genre of significant and classic Christian writing. This most recent book, "Teach Us to Number Our Days," is definitely a God established work of his hands.
Wonderful quiet reflection on life and God's love Apr 24, 2009
This book, consistent with others by David Roper, is broken into daily devotional sized chunks. This particular one strikes a responsive chord in my life as I approach retirement and look beyond the daily activity that so consumes our mental energy. It is very much a fireside chat with David Roper each morning -- time well spent.
