You have probably seen daily devotional books that deal with Psalms, Proverbs or the Gospels. But I doubt you have seen one inspired by the Torah, that is, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. How should Christians reads those texts? How do you find spiritual meaning and direction from the description of the high priest’s garment? Well, Mark Lanier, founder of the Lanier Theological Library, has shown us how to do just that in 366 Scripture readings taken directly from Torah. He stopped by to talk with me on “The Stone Chapel” about his newest book, published by 1845 Books, a division of Baylor University Press. It is an amazing book. I recommend it to you as you consider the new year.

    1. Thanks staciec74, it is a great devotional book. The Lanier Theological Library has a lot of great resources. Listen to our podcasts, “Exegetically Speaking” and “The Stone Chapel.” They have lots of great content. Also you might want to listen in to, which has Mark’s teaching. He is a master teacher.
