While there are many excellent daily devotional books available for instruction and encouragement for daily life, Opening the Word is unique in many ways. First, it is written from a Wesleyan perspective. Our writers agree that the victorious life is possible for the committed Christian. Secondly, our writers are not professional writers. Most are involved in ministry, and are writing as fellow travelers in the Christian life. Third, our devotionals are written fresh for each quarter. None of our devotionals are reprints. Finally, our devotionals are taken from our Sunday School curriculum, called The Way, Truth, and Life curriculum. Thus our devotionals are designed to assist the reader in their preparation for classroom discussions on Sunday.
Opening the Word was the fulfillment of a dream of the late Ray Crooks, editor of Herald and Banner Press from 1991-1997. Since its first printing in 1992, this daily devotional guide has been a constant companion for many growing Christians. These devotionals are now being aired daily at https://www.chbonline.org/.
We believe these devotionals can be a blessing to your life as well.
