No other time-honored spiritual practice is as immediate, raw, and
engaged with Scripture as writing--responding to God--in the margins of
the Bible. Composers like Bach to theologians like Barth, botanists and
saints--all have written their thoughts directly in their Bibles. In
doing so they engaged their fullest selves with our most significant

Some people have lived with Scripture all their lives and yet feel
estranged from it. This book inspires a new encounter with “the living
Word”--and jump-starts a deep, creative, and hands-on approach to
reading Scripture.

As you sit, with pencil, pen, crayon, or marker in hand and Bible in
lap, at whatever edges of life you are living within, now that
invitation is yours. The creative practice of writing in the margins
creates a divine conversation that transforms and guides. Meet God in
the margins. Let God shape your character from the living interaction on
the pages of your Bible.

Writing in the Margins is a book about making connections on
the pages of your Bible--and introduces a devotional and scriptural path
of engagement that is life-changing.
