What better way to start the year than a trip back to the beginning, back to Genesis. While it’s true that most ‘read the Bible in one year’ plans start in Genesis, this might be the most I feel like I’ve got out of reading Genesis – it felt like a joy rather than a chore, which it has sometimes felt in the past when I’ve been just thinking about how much I need to read and not what I’m reading.
Having the time to really reflect on each day’s readings and the additional extras that are interspersed through the book really helped me to absorb what I was reading and think about how it connects to life now.
And of course, the book was beautiful inside and out. The SRT books always feel really thoughtfully laid out and put together, to really give focus to the words that you’re reading, but to make that reading as focused as possible.
