This book was written in response to a call from the Lord to develop a guide to assist lay people in reading through the Bible. If there are any errors, they are totally mine. I pray you will read these lessons with an open heart to God's voice through the reading of His word. Along the way, many people provided encouragement and guidance. About 100 people participated in the original Bible study conducted through the mail and Internet. Those participants greatly encouraged me during the process of the intense study and development of the written lessons. Many provided funds for the mailings and prayer for my strength to endure the rigorous one-year process. Above all, my parents, Garner and Jean Baker, provided the most support in love and dedication to my vision for the lessons. Thomas Baker, my son, assisted with some of the typing and drawings. Letha Coleman, my daughter, prayed for me and listened patiently to my complaints and words of exhaustion. My eternal thanks to my family and friends who stayed the course and made this book possible.
My husband wrote about 35 of the lessons so that I could attend to family emergencies and the lessons could proceed to the Bible study participants on time. Hopefully, these lessons will be a blessing to you.
