Review: Before You Open Your Bible by Matt Smethurst

What do you do before you open the Bible? What do you think to yourself?

In this short book, Matt Smethurst challenges us to ask those questions of ourselves. And in doing so, he gives 9 reminders and correctives to help us approach God’s word. Each one packs a weighty punch, and does not take long to read.

I found the author’s chapter on prayer particularly useful. As Smethurst mentions, even he did not think to add this chapter till the end. Prayer is so important to rightly handling God’s word, and something we regularly forget to do.

I used this book for 9 days consecutively and found it a helpful challenge and MOT to my Bible reading. Highly recommended, and one I will be going back to regularly.

Big thanks to 10ofThose for providing me a complimentary copy to review!
