There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.

A Table before me: The Meditating Christian reveals God as the Living God who has spoken to His people definitively through Jesus Christ and who continues to speak daily through His Word. God prepares a table before us each day, where He sits with us and feeds us His Word. The secret of meditation is that we do not have to force our entry into God's Word. God delights to speak to all who will listen. He only requires that we listen, by opening ourselves to Him as He speaks, by focusing on the words that we read, and by allowing His Spirit to plant those words in our innermost being, just as a farmer plants seeds in the springtime. The result will be a transformed prayer life, deeper communion with God and a new joy in participating in God's redeeming work throughout the world. The Korean edition of this book is a best seller in Korea, and translation has begun on the Chinese edition. David and Ellen Ross are Presbyterians who have served as missionaries to the Korean people for over forty-five years. Co-founders of Youth With A Mission Korea, and The Antioch Institute for International Ministries, their present ministry includes teaching and writing, providing pastoral care for long-term, cross-cultural missionaries, and ministry to North Korea. David is the author of two books on North Korea as well as numerous Bible study manuals.

In John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, the pilgrims cannot reach the Celestial City without passing through Vanity Fair, where everything is bought and sold. In recent years there has been much analysis of commerce and consumption in Britain during the long eighteenth century, and of the dramatic expansion of popular publishing. Similarly, much has been written on the extraordinary effects of the evangelical revivals of the eighteenth century in Britain, Europe, and North America. But how did popular religious culture and the world of print interact? It is now known that religious works formed the greater part of the publishing market for most of the century. What religious books were read, and how? Who chose them? How did they get into people's hands? Vanity Fair and the Celestial City is the first book to answer these questions in detail. It explores the works written, edited, abridged, and promoted by evangelical dissenters, Methodists both Arminian and Calvinist, and Church of England evangelicals in the period 1720 to 1800. Isabel Rivers also looks back to earlier sources and forward to the continued republication of many of these works well into the nineteenth century. The first part is concerned with the publishing and distribution of religious books by commercial booksellers and not-for-profit religious societies, and the means by which readers obtained them and how they responded to what they read. The second part shows that some of the most important publications were new versions of earlier nonconformist, episcopalian, Roman Catholic, and North American works. The third part explores the main literary kinds, including annotated bibles, devotional guides, exemplary lives, and hymns. Building on many years' research into the religious literature of the period, Rivers discusses over two hundred writers and provides detailed case studies of popular and influential works.
