Taking Bible passages about John the Baptist verse by verse, and making observations concerning what he says, what the text meant when first written and how it applies today, you are invited to study this last of the Old Testament prophets within the pages of the New Testament, over one month (31 days) and so to better get to know the Lord Jesus.
Frank Sellar has been ministering in Ireland and Northern Ireland for the last three decades. He and his wife Claire have three children.
Sellar takes readers through a series of daily reflections filled with biblical, theological, and practical insight that not only give John his due but, more importantly, are right in line with John’s life and calling as a prophet pointing to Jesus who came to take away the sin of the world.

Engaging, thoughtful and wise, Frank Sellar’s 31–day devotional brings fresh eyes to a familiar story. The great gift of this book is to encourage and challenge both our head and heart. It will bless all those who read it.

His careful reflections come from a lifetime of ministry that has been biblical, pastoral and practical. Consequently, Frank’s insights into the Baptist’s character and ministry are applied with a deceptive simplicity that can veil the wisdom of these brief expositions.

Here is a beautifully crafted introduction to a much neglected Biblical hero. It is rich in pastoral encouragement for believers under pressure, full of wise biblical insight for disciples living in an egocentric culture, and focused on prayerful application day by day. A devotional gem!
