Summary

This spiritually uplifting, beautifully designed, silk-bound volume is rich with scripture, literature and meditations, and designed to provide readers of all denominations with a daily source of reassurance, inspiration and comfort.

Our Daily Bread is an enduringly lovely and eloquent source of daily inspiration or occasional comfort. Its 365 daily passages on a wide range of topics help readers navigate life's most treasured and troubling moments; special selections of scripture, literature and personal writings focus on major milestones and subjects such as family, loss, birth, renewal, love and marriage.

All biblical quotations are drawn from the New International Version (NIV). Other readings come from such renowned writers, educators, artists and thinkers as St. Augustine, Emily Brontë, Samuel Johnson, Francis Bacon, Billy Graham, Fannie Hurst--and many others.
