Light Bites by Major Peter Mylechreest
The Bible is relevant to just about every subject under the sun and this book illustrates it. In 100 bite-size chapters, Light Bites connects scripture with science, literature, history, film, television, the natural world and many other areas.
From aviation to zoology and from Shakespeare to sport, the author draws on his wide range of knowledge and interests to show that the Bible has something to say and something to show us about them all.
With quotations and examples from the Bible at their core, these reflections emphasise that Gods word speaks about everything we experience and everything we enjoy, whether it is extraordinary or mundane. They also offer challenges, suggestions and encouragement for our faith journey.
Light Bites is not intended as a deeply devotional work nor a theological treatise, but a reminder that the Bible has links with everyday life in any era. It is a book to dip into for intriguing insights and anecdotes, food for thought and, above all, spiritual nourishment.
