How to Read the Bible So It Changes Your Life by Aletha Hinthorn

My Pastor's wife (Thanks Mary!) always has a new book in her hands and one day last fall, she had this one - How to Read the Bible So It Changes Your Life by Aletha Hinthorne. I checked our public library to find out if they had it in their collection, but they didn't so I requested that they purchase it and they did!

Its an easy to read, yet challenging book.

The back cover says:

Is God's Word Changing your life? or...

* Are you having trouble developing the discipline to get into His Word regularly?

* Are demands on your time squeezing out the time you spend with Him?

* Have you been ignoring God's still, small voice calling your to fellowship with Him?

In How to Read the Bible So It Changes Your Life, Aletha Hinthorn teaches you to read the Bible so that your daily life is impacted. Her insights bring God's Word to life in the mundane, everyday world you live in.

Whether you're on the mountaintop or in the valley, you can learn to turn to God along every step of life's journey.

How to Read the Bible So It Changes Your Life gives you the solid foundation you need to discern what God has to say to you today!


At the end of the book there is a two year Daily Lectionary that is arranged according to the church year so you are reading about the birth of Christ at Christmas and the crucifixion at Easter, etc. I recommend to this book to anyone who wants to get more out of their Bible reading time.

I'm going to check this one out - it looks wonderful.

If you are ever interested, I'd love to have you come do a book review for me at abookloversjournal.blogspot.com.
I love to read, and I enjoy keeping a book journal. Recently I decided to try it online. I've had one other guest "post-er" and the more the merrier! Just let me know anytime.

Thanks for the tip - and I am looking forward to reading more of your blogs soon.

Hi Jennifer,

I'm glad you stopped by - it would be fun to write a book review sometime for your blog. Do you have any books in mind or just one that moves me? I'm reading a pretty heavy book right now - Tortured for Christ by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand and yesterday I finished Justice in the Burbs by Will and Lisa Samson. I'm reading a few others a little at a time for maximum absorbtion :)
