from The Baptist Standard, 2016 - "Most people who train to complete a long race try not to do it alone. The miles pass more amiably if they run with a friend. A fellow runner provides accountability and companionship, both vital to completing the challenge.
That’s sort of how Lyn Robbins’ new book, Grace Always Comes, works. It’s a 366-day partner for someone who wants to read the Bible cover-to-cover in a year. Robbins provides a plan—a four-chapter-per-day reading guide. He also offers a bonus—a single 250-word devotional inspired by each day’s text.
Robbins’ book comes alongside the reader like a faithful running buddy who whispers, “Don’t give up; we can do this.” He read the Bible through and wrote his daily essays in exactly one year. So, if you think you don’t have time, get tired or maybe find yourself a little bored by Numbers, Robbins is right beside you. Only, since he also wrote each of those devotionals, it’s kind of like he’s running beside you backwards.
Robbins is a creative, thoughtful Bible student and teacher. He amplifies truth from across the pages of God’s word—sometimes elaborating on the expected; sometimes mining scriptural surprises. He’s also a committed disciple. Just like a great companion aids a runner-in-training, he’ll help you grow in your faith."
