Description

We live in a fast-paced world, and our minds are working in overdrive. Mindfulness promises a method of tuning out the voices for a few minutes to live in the moment. Biblical meditation offers something better: an opportunity to be transformed by God's voice of truth.

Psalm 1 says that the person who delights in God’s word and meditates on it day and night is like a “tree planted by streams of water”. Linda Allcock gives us a framework to help us slow down and dwell deeply on God’s word so that it clears our minds and fills our hearts, making a real difference to the way we live.

This book will help Christians who feel overwhelmed by their thought life, as well as those who want to go deeper in their devotional life.

Full of down-to-earth anecdotes and practical advice, this warm and accessible book is designed to help make biblical meditation part of your everyday life.

Linda Allcock has provided us with a great tool for Bible meditation! With humility and clarity, she teaches us how we can fill our hearts with Scripture and ask questions to help the truth saturate our souls. You will not set down this book pessimistic about another spiritual task to accomplish, but you will be encouraged, instructed, and pointed to the grace of the gospel, which permeates Linda’s chapters. I will be recommending this to many.

All of us could do with slowing down. That’s true for life in general and for our time in God’s word in particular. We all want to make progress with Jesus, of course, but paradoxically it is by going slower with his word that we will make the fastest progress with him. Linda’s book is a searching and timely call to meditate on God’s word, explaining clearly and carefully what that means and offering up a practical framework to do it well. She is honest about the struggles of finding time for the Scriptures but ambitious about the delight we can discover there. Don’t rush past this one.

Gabrielle Samuel

her.conference and London City Mission missionary

Linda has written a book that makes you want to put down her book and pick up your Bible—there’s not much higher praise to give than that. I laughed (out loud and publicly), paused, prayed, highlighted and jotted my way through this book. Linda warmly instils a sense of expectation and joy at the privilege of mediating on Gods word.

"Full of encouragement and hope"

Bethany Davidson, September 17th 2020

Deeper Still addresses the importance of dwelling on Scripture in the midst of daily life, and does so in a way that is accessible both to people like me and to those who are new to the concept.... continue reading

 

"a wonderful gift"

Catherine Brooks, September 20th 2020

I do think this book is really accessible and not at all intimidating, so I’d also recommend it to younger Christians, even if they’ve never read the Bible on their own. In a way it would be perfect for them because it would start them off reading the Bible in a healthy way, rather than just thinking of it as a chore or something to tick off a list... continue reading

 

"warm, relational and heart-changing"

Elinor Magowan, September 24th 2020

As I struggle with the restrictions in fellowship and church life during lockdown, I was refreshed and motivated to read my Bible more, to discover Christ in all the Scriptures, and to look forward to heaven and live a life that holds me fast... continue reading

“Absolute gem of a book.”

I was stopped in my tracks, listening to a message. (Tozer). I had to throw my reading plan away (agony) and start meditating on a verse or paragraph. Lost. Then I read the review for this book, and it was the right book at the right time for me. I devoured it, so practical and easy to understand. The author did a great job in explaining how easy it is to skim read and therefore miss so much. So I have embarked on an entirely different plan, I am led to the passage, and I stay there and clean the bones of a verse. I explain it back to myself, and will ask questions. I engage pen and paper and really enjoy my new way of reading scripture. God speaks through the Word, I have to listen carefully. Feel his heartbeat, which I kept missing before. Tozer on meditation got my attention this book helped me put it into practice. No more rushed reading followed by indigestion but a choice three course meal. A gem of a book and I am so thankful. Enjoyable read and well written.

“Great resource and teaching”

(Review written for 'Deeper Still')

A short, refreshing book with ideas for the busy woman who wants to meditate on the Word more completely. The author teaches us why we need to meditate, but basically the book is full of practical aspects and strategies to meditate.

What I enjoyed most about this book is how practical it is, complete with questions to guide, examples of using those questions with two passages, and ideas to ponder so that you can set your mind on God, His son's redemptive plan, and the impact the Holy Spirit has in our hearts and minds when we CHOOSE to invite Him in.

It's a great teaching tool for an individual, a parent, or a small group to navigate through and improve or learn how to focus on God's Word. I highly recommend it.
