Old Testament Treasures: Reflections and Prayers on Favorite Bible Passages
While the entire Bible is important, certain verses capture our imagination or speak to us in a way that few others can begin to. Who can forget the words of the 23rd psalm, the parables of Jesus, or the wonderful teaching of Paul in 1 Corinthians on the gift of love? These are just some of the countless passages to have encouraged, comforted, strengthened, and inspired Christians across the centuries. In this selection of readings, reflections, and prayers, Nick Fawcett highlights some of the most unforgettable passages from the Old Testament. Drawn from his book Daily Prayer and from three of his Fawcett Bible Studies, here are readings to encourage, renew, and inspire.

About the Author
Brought up in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, Nick Fawcett served as a Baptist minister for 13 years, and as a chaplain with TocH for 3, before deciding to focuson writing and editing, which he continues with today, despite wrestling with myeloma, an incurable cancer of the blood. He lives in Wellington, Somerset, with his wife, Deborah, and - when they are at home from university - his two children, Samuel and Kate. Delighting in the beauty of the West Country, Nick and Deborah love nothing more than walking stretches of the South West coast path at weekends, and Nick - as well as finding time for online games of chess and Scrabble alongside his many editing commitments - finds constant inspiration for his numerous books in the lanes and footpaths near his house. His aim, increasingly, is to write material free of religious jargon that reaches out to people of all faiths and none.
