This book is a personal exploration of how Christianity makes sense of life and how the Bible can point the way to a quality of existence that may surpass expectations. The author writes, "In this book, I hope to encourage others (as well as myself) to receive what we believe God wants to give us. Through reading the Bible and entering into what is there, we may find ourselves drawn closer to the mysterious being called God. Out from the words in the Bible, meanings and associations run in all sorts of directions, linked with people, events and ideas. Different themes have stirred me, they have chosen me as much as I have chosen them. Tracing directions from the Bible is something anyone could do; I would like to think others may find fresh possibilities in this approach."Keith Jones writes with an engaging accessibility, an educated voice and a reflective tone. He draws on his experience both as an individual and as a member of the wider Christian church, now immersed in Cathedral life. He does not ignore other writers on the Bible, particularly those whose influence is known in history, but draws them into his reflections. He looks at what has influenced him in his appreciation of Scripture and of God - be it music, books or the events of his life.Convinced that to immerse oneself in the stories and ideas of Scripture not only brings one closer to God, but also enriches and fulfills life as it is lived every day, he is a persuasive advocate of the ongoing relevance of the Bible to modern life.
