Billy Graham meets Norman Vincent Peal . . . in a good way!  Many times when reading scripture, we don’t take the time to figure out where the rubber meets the road.  We’re so busy with our own agendas (and I’m speaking for myself, as well) that we see Bible reading / Bible study as something to get through as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Priceless Stones forces the reader to slow down; to really contemplate the truths that are being communicated through the Hebrew words that are under consideration.  Author James Revoir tackles one word in each “chapter,” provides insight and analysis as to the importance of that word, and then invites the reader to respond to the Lord by means of Prayer, and by means of Dedication.

The Prayers and Dedications are written out, and demonstrate to the reader points of real-life application that can be put into practice immediately.  The Dedications, especially, are a breath of fresh air for the tired believer.  The ramifications of the word under consideration are fully realized, and the impact that it ought to have on the believer are practically spelled out.  Many times, they remind me of the Apostle Paul’s pedagogy; “On the basis of these truths, how should we then live?”

Following the Prayer and the Dedication, there are a number of Study Guide questions that would be excellent for small-group discussion

Whether for small-group Bible study, or personal devotions, Priceless Stones will bring the Hebrew language to life.  And you don’t have to know Hebrew to benefit from this excellent resource.
