Do you want a daily devotional book that delivers riches every day? Do you want to read something profound, something life-changing?
Mary Werner has produced a delightful daily devotional made up of quotations selected from the last twenty centuries of Christian experience. These allow us to benefit from the wealth of wisdom of past pilgrims on the road to enlightenment.
Each day opens with a passage of the Bible that is then illuminated from the writings of Great Christian figures and authors. These gems come from a wide variety of sources, early Christians like Cyprian and Iranaeus; then Jerome, Anselm or Francis of Assissi; Thomas a Kempis; Martin Luther and Jonathan Edwards pop up; as do John Donne; Blaise Pascal and John Wesley; also included are more contemporary figures such as Frances Ridley Havergal, George Macdonald - and many more from each and every century of thought.
Refined by the passage of time, these ideas remain as relevant today as when they were written. They will enrich your times of meditation with a freshness and clarity that sets you up for the day.
Whether you use it for a few moments before the daily rush gets under way, on the train or bus, or as you wind down at night, 'Inspirational Gold' will provide the ideal companion.
