Reading the Bible with Heart & Mindby Tremper Longman
Synopses & Reviews
WARNING: THIS BOOK COULD CHANGE THE WAY YOU READ THE BIBLE FOREVER. As God’s written Word to us, the Bible is the single most powerful agent for transforming our lives. But too often our Bible reading becomes routine and fails to engage our hearts as well as our minds. In Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind, Tremper Longman will help you discover the incredible power of the Scriptures to mold you into the character of Christ. “Even though the Bible is powerful,” writes Longman, “we don’t change just because we read it. Our minds may be engaged, but something needs to happen to our hearts as well.” If you want to rekindle your passion for God’s Word, this book will help you learn to accurately read, understand, and respond to God’s Word in ways that will develop deep intimacy with Christ and transform you into His image.
Renew your passion for Scripture and learn how it can mold you into the image of Christ by reading God's Word with your heart and your mind.

As God's written Word to us, the Bible is the single most powerful agent for transforming our lives. But too often Bible reading becomes routine.
