When You Walk : 365 Readings for Ordinary Followers of Jesus Who Sometimes Find the Going a Bit Tough Paperback
by Adrian Plass
When You Walk is a rich collection of warm, highly individualistic, sometimes refreshingly maverick responses to familiar and not so familiar passages, that Adrian Plass has contributed to BRF's New Daylight Bible reading notes over the years.
The material, organised by Adrian himself, includes a new and substantial preface to each of the sections in the book.
Section headings include: Getting Lost Obedience Passion Theory and Practice Reality Story power Heading for Heaven New Beginnings Laughter and tears abound in this book.
The writer offers nothing less than the fruits of his own vulnerability in the hope that we, his readers, will be equally willing to react honestly, thus transforming our relationship with the Bible, and especially with those verses that have, in a sense, become invisible, because we have never given ourselves permission to look clearly at the way they make us feel.
There is no doubt that such a process will also transform our relationship with God.
Join Adrian for the walk. We know it can be very tough, but no one has to do it alone.

Review by SueinCyprus
I've been reading this for about a year. It should have been exactly a year, I suppose, since there it consists of 365 daily Bible readings with commentary, but some days I didn't read any, and some days I read more than one. I was not consistent. <br/><br/>I have always enjoyed Adrian Plass's writing, particularly his humorous 'diaries', but very much appreciate his more serious work too. In this, a collection of readings that have appeared elsewhere, he covers a wide variety of topics, with passages from most books of the Bible appearing. The subtitle of the book (for ordinary followers of Jesus who sometimes find the going a bit tough) was enough to inspire me to buy it last year, and I've found it - overall - a rewarding read.<br/><br/>I don't suppose I've learned anything new, but I've enjoyed Adrian Plass's insights, peppered with personal anecdotes and his pithy, ironic and amusing one-liners. There's also a depth of insight which I found revealing and often helpful.<br/><br/>I don't know that I can remember anything specific from the book, but at the time I always felt it was well worth reading. Recommended to anyone who wants something of this sort. <br/>
