Beeke, Joel R.
In the Bible, milk and honey speaks of God’s bountiful provision and symbolizes our basic need for solid spiritual food and sweet communion with the triune God through Christ. With that in mind, this devotional book dwells on God’s sustaining grace revealed throughout Scripture.
Unlike some daily devotional books that are an assortment of meditations with no thematic structure, Milk and Honey provides brief devotional thoughts that cover the major contours of Scripture in the course of a year. Bible books are divided among twelve pastors so that each month covers a particular portion of Scripture. The result is a devotional survey of the Bible by able expositors of God’s Word.

"The next best thing to being wise oneself,' someone once said, 'is to surround yourself with those who are.' To begin or end each day with these judicious devotional sound bites will accomplish just that--they will teach you the way of wisdom. Issuing as it does from a trusted source, "Milk and Honey is, as they say, a sure thing. Insightful and experiential, these daily readings provide an ideal accompaniment to personal or family devotions." - Derek W.H. Thomas, Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
"I am confident that Milk and Honey will meet the needs of those readers who are looking for a daily spiritual resource that offers more than most devotionals available today. Here we gave the product of not one, but twelve like-minded ministers from different denominations who have taken up the task of providing wholesome food for people with various spiritual needs. I am impressed with the vast array of subjects that the authors have covered and the competent way in which they deal with some very sensitive spiritual matters." - Cornelis Pronk, Emeritus Pastor of the Free Reformed Church of Brantford, Ontario
"Here, in this new and most excellent book of readings written by various able and highly respected men of the Reformed persuasion, we have perceptive and helpful comments on numerous biblical texts covering a whole range of revealed truth...I commend it to all who wish to go forth and gather the heavenly manna and quench their thirst with the spiritual waters of life and salvation." - Malcolm H. Watts, Minister of Emmanuel Church, Salisbury, England
