This is a book review that I posted on Amazon.com of David Roper's book: Teach Us to Number Our Days.
All of David Roper’s books are excellent, but I believe this
to be one of his best. In “Teach
Us to Number Our Days,” he clearly communicates the Word of God and the words
of the Spirit using both his immense Biblical knowledge and his personal,
experiential wisdom. The rich,
concise writings in the book are filled with Biblical references, poems,
personal narratives and lasting practical application.
The tenor of this book tends to speak to those that are in
their advanced years. However, I
am entering the “mid-life” era of life and I found this book to be an extremely
rich resource for my spiritual journey.
There are things in this book that I needed to hear so that the “number
of my days,” honor God and are fruit bearing for the Lord.
I read this book as I would a devotional reader—one chapter
a day. The content of each chapter
was so rich I found myself reflecting and meditating upon its precepts
throughout the day. This book
served as a significant instrument in my personal journey of spiritual
formation in Christ.
Personally, I think that David Roper’s books will stand the
test of time and take their place in the genre of significant and classic
Christian writing. This most
recent book, “Teach Us to Number Our Days,” is definitely a God established
work of his hands.
