The have been a book of devotion and inspiration to all ages, and through the ages. The Rev. Dr. John Calvin Reid, pastor of the Mt. Lebanon Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, chooses 118 of the most meaningful verses, one to a page, and follows each with an original personal prayer which amplifies the meaning of the verse and makes the response to God which appropriates the depth, breadth and height of God's word to man, or the original experience of the who cries out to God in his human need. These verses and prayers encompass the whole range of life's experience, and are meant to be prayed, not merely read. The book is small, the printing large, making it useful for young and old alike. It would make an admirable bed-side companion.
