People of the Book

One of the young men (43) where I worship offered a devotional last night that I thought was outstanding…but it greatly disturbed me. He spoke on the necessity to really “know the Word.” We used to be “People of the Book.” Why do so many of us no longer know Book, Chapter and Verse? Why do so many of us no longer know why we are unique? Or even what we claim to stand for? He was absolutely correct: We all need to devote more time to study so that once again we may be “People of the Book.”
