Description

New Daylight offers four months of daily Bible reading and reflection for everybody who wants to go deeper with God. It is ideal for those looking for a fresh approach to regular Bible study, and offers a talented team of contributors who present a Bible passage (text included), helpful comment and a prayer or thought for the day ahead.

The Editor writes...

One of my tasks as editor of New Daylight is to read through the entire issue just before I send it to BRF for further editing and proofreading. Usually I end up with my head reeling with hundreds of new ideas, reflections and insights, and it takes me a few days to return to 'normal'. This issue is no exception - for the next few months you will experience a wide range of writers, subjects and approaches, some of which will challenge, some comfort and others entertain you. All, I hope, will inform your spiritual life.

Amy Boucher Pye bravely tackles Judges, a difficult and challenging book, which seems concerned mostly with recording the many ways in which God's people turn away from him and towards other gods. However, Amy finds pockets of hope in the stories of Deborah and Gideon, and useful lessons for us all in the way that God never loses faith in his people, even when they lose faith in him. She demonstrates the way in which the Old Testament can provide depth and new dimensions to our understanding of God and of the redemption of his promises in the person of Christ.

Penelope Wilcock's reflections challenge us in a different way. Through her examination of the roles of women in the New Testament, she helps us to see that our task is to assist with the 'restoration of equality' for men and women, away from attitudes of 'dominance and subjugation', which have their roots, she asserts, as far back as the fall. She declares, however, that our challenge is to ensure that such restoration takes place 'quietly, gently, gracefully and with propriety, as befits the Christian way'.

Finally, Paul Gravelle's reflections on harvest are particularly interesting, since they come to us from the other side of the world - New Zealand. Harvest is both a universal theme and a highly place-specific phenomenon, and Paul helps us to explore both physical and spiritual harvest times.

All the reflections in this issue are written by enthusiastic and thoughtful people, whose heart for the gospel is such that they share it in the best way they can, to everyone possible. I wish you good reading!
