Meditations, by Thomas Bentley

Labels: .

Meditations is not a commentary on passages of the Word of God; it is a compilation of daily meditations of one Bible teacher, set out in ways that Thomas Bentley found helpful, when at a later date he was exercised to develop the outline he had noted. The initial purpose of Meditations is at least twofold: firstly, to ensure that the individual Christian remains familiar with the whole Bible, and not conversant only with favourite portions; and secondly, to fill the mind with particular sections of Scripture upon which further reflection is possible in any 24-hour period. Meditations presents one approach that Thomas Bentley found enriching. Certainly the purpose of its publications is to provide a model for day-to-day Bible study that is adaptable to meet the requirements of any earnest Christian.
