If you read through my blog, you might notice that the most common threads and posts are related to family ministry, biblical parenting, fatherhood and the like. One of the most critical responsibilities of any Christian man, especially a father, is to pass on the torch of faith to the next generation. The Psalmist records this in Psalm 78, Paul records this in Ephesians and Moses recorded it as a fundamental element of the covenant promises of God to Abraham through which God’s promises would be passed on from generation to generation in the daily discussions, walks and talks of father and son, and in one particular role of leadership, Israel’s Kings.
“And when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself in a book a copy of this law, approved by the Levitical priests. And it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God by keeping all the words of this law and these statutes, and doing them, that his heart may not be lifted up above his brothers, and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, either to the right hand or to the left, so that he may continue long in his kingdom, he and his children, in Israel.
(Deuteronomy 17:18-20 ESV)
Through writing a copy of the Law, The King go through the personal investment of time and effort to record God’s promises and Israel’s history, lest they forget, which sadly we see happen over and over again in redemptive history.
Enter the Journible 17:18 Series.
The 17:18 series, in particular the Acts volume that I recently received, is designed so that today’s reader’s of Scripture might take the time to carefully and prayerfully do what generations upon generations of God’s people have done before them, which is to hand write, and meditate upon the Words of God and pass that treasured investment of time and effort and prayer onto the coming generation.
These volumes hold a dear place to my heart. I pray that I am able to complete all of the volumes, and I pray that Reformation Heritage Books introduces volumes for the whole Christian canon, so that I may one day leave my son a legacy of faith in the One True God even as the world continues to turn away.
The Journible 17:18 series are beautiful bound journal volumes of archive quality paper waiting to be filled with the living words of God that will last for generations to come.
I received the copy in exchange for an honest review from Cross Focused Reviews
