Description


This book can be used as daily or weekly devotional guide. It is a perfect devotional book for those seeking to go deeper in their faith and develop Biblical literacy. Rev. Stella Burkhalter writes in an accessible, conversational style to look at not only Biblical concepts, but also the words and letters themselves. Those who enjoy the intellectual pursuit of language learning will find much to connect with.  Those who are seeking a new and different way to read and study the Bible and pray will also enjoy this book. It offers a mystical path from the heart of an artist, but stays in keeping with traditional  teachings from a trained theologian. Christians of all backgrounds and denominations, as well as those with no Christian background at all will find things to ponder in this book.
