Whatever you do it is essential you read the Word of God
After years as the face of Agatha Christie’s beloved Belgian detective Poirot, actor David Suchet finally realised his dream.
But it wasn’t awards or special recognition, it was to record the entire Bible as an audio book.
The project absorbed months of study and in-depth analysis plus 250 hours in the studio, and you might be forgiven for wondering why.
Suchet, who became a Christian at the age of 40, says there is a desperate need for the Bible to return to central focus in 21st century Britain.
“People died to get this book into our language,” he says.
And believers are still risking everything to get the Word into people’s hands today, including smuggling Bibles into countries where Christianity remains illegal.
Reading the Bible has a power all of its own. When staunch atheist and science professor Holly Ordway overcame her prejudices and actually read the Book, her life was transformed.
The truth had a similar effect on Satanist Danny Mcilhiney, who initially had only studied about Jesus and the disciples in order to be able to argue against Christianity.
He certainly got more than he bargained for!
You might be like Elaina Skuce who loves to read her Bible while she has her breakfast, or you might have a completely different approach.
But whatever you do it is essential you read the Word of God.
In Devotion this month J.John agrees.
“Whatever the style or type of revival,” he argues, “the real thing always shows itself in a new desire to know God through his written word, the Bible.”
The reality is that in Britain we might not truly understand how blessed we are to have the Bible and Christian literature freely available until it is taken away.
