For more than three decades Glen A. Huff has led adult Bible studies and lectured on Bible topics. As a practicing trail attorney, he brings an organized analytical approach to understanding scripture while seeking application of God's Word in everyday living. This book, Daily Devotional, grew from a weekly e-mail column which was published for more than seven years. Readers of the weekly message often forwarded the text to others. The messages thereby traveled through cyberspace to readers around the world. Daily Devotional is designed to provide a structured approach to the daily discipline of seeking God at work in scripture and in the world. The faith walk of a Christian requires daily study and reflection. This book assigns a daily reading, followed by a brief meditation. Glen A. Huff lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia with his wife Linda. Their son, Jeremy Huff, practices law in Beijing, China and their daughter, Laura Mack, lives in Virginia Beach where she teaches kindergarten class at Stratford Preschool.
The Tao Te Ching is the most widely traslated book in world literature, after the Bible. Yet the gemlike lucidity of the original has eluded most previous translations, and they have obscured some of its central ideas. Now the Tao Te ching has been rendered into English by the eminent scholar and traslator Stephen Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell's Dropping Ashes on the Buddha is a modern Zen classic, and his translations of Rilke and of the Book of Job have already been called definitive for our time.
The BBC has looked back through its rich archive of recordings to produce a poll of the most asked for and most broadcast pieces ever: it is those poems that this anthology brings together here. A showcase, in effect, for the nation's favourite verse, Poetry Please is a treasure trove for our most requested and most listened to poems of all time. It is a compelling invitation for readers of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate the verse that we care so much about: from new readers to old, from schools to reading groups, this a book for giving, a book for cherishing.
