Philippians – the Epistle of Joy – and this shines through in this book, even from the very front cover – what joy!
Philippians is a book of the Bible that I thought I knew quite well – it’s very quotable and has lots of verses which can be a huge encouragement.
But I don’t think I’ve ever read the book as a whole – as it was intended – a letter. So I really appreciated having a couple of weeks to really get into this book. With thoughtful questions at the end of each day’s reading, it really helped me to think more deeply about what was written.
The other fantastic thing was the inclusion of the little pamphlet with the book written in letter format. Removing the verse numbers and altering the formatting really made a difference to how it felt to read. I’d really recommend reading the book at least once like this.
