Praise for the book:
"It is so easy to fall into an over-familiar reading of the Bible after many years of Bible reading. Glen's great gift is to show us what we are reading, to bring sparkle back to these wonderful Bible phrases. For those new to the Bible, it helps them to see how this book has shaped our daily language. For many people I know these studies helped them to venture out into new territory in the Bible, those parts that they didn't usually read. This is an excellent book and a great gift."
— Paul Blackham, Pastor of St Crispins, Highbury and Author of Bible Explored
"Glen Scrivener can be relied upon for brilliant insights into God’s Word, which he then turns into bang-up-to-the-minute applications. His writing is challenging, but always a pleasure, and his desire to honour Christ in all things is infectious and refreshing.”
— James Cary, writer of Death by Civilisation and The God Particle
"I love this book! Glen has a knack for looking at familiar biblical texts from unfamiliar angles, and he's done it again here. Pithy yet profound, easy to read yet deeply challenging, Reading Between the Lines uncovers a multitude of surprising ways in which the Scriptures speak about Jesus."
— Steve Jeffery, Minister of Emmanuel Church in North London, and co-author of Pierced for Our Transgressions
"Most books about the Bible leave you feeling it is a difficult book. Glen's book, however, leaves the reader feeling I really must enjoy reading my Bible more so I can see the beauty and wisdom of Jesus Christ."
— Steve Levy, Pastor of Mount Pleasant Baptist, Swansea, author of Bible Explored
"Glen has the enviable gifting of simply and beautifully showing you Jesus in all the Scriptures. This book will adjust the focus lens of your heart to see more clearly the wonder of our Saviour from beginning to end. It will make you happy in Jesus."
— Michael Luehrmann, pastor of City Evangelical Church, Leeds
“Give this book to the person you want to know Jesus better.”
— Nate Morgan-Locke, author of Soul and co-author of Life Explored
"This book stands out amidst the multitude of others in this genre because Glen actually believes that the Scriptures are about Jesus. Within a week you'll forget that you used to think that seeing Christ on every page was a challenge, and you'll be reading your Bible because you want more of Jesus and the life He brings."
— Rich Owen, Pastor of Worthing Tabernacle
“During a particularly difficult time of church ministry, these daily reflections kept me going. This book will strengthen you with gospel encouragement and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.”
— Tim Vasby-Burnie, Vicar of St George’s Church, Shrewsbury
"Glen combines a reverent focus on the Christ-filled meaning of all scripture with his world-class skill of making things clear. That is what makes these precious daily studies so enlightening and nourishing."
— Joel Virgo, Pastor, Emmanuel Church, Brighton
