My small group is going through Donald Miller's "Blue Like Jazz". In chapter four, he tells the story of how his friend, Penny, became a Christian. Penny started reading the Bible with her Christian friend, Nadine.
"Yes. We would eat chocolates and smoke cigarettes and read the Bible, which is the only way to do it, if you ask me. Don, the Bible is so good with chocolate. I always thought the Bible was more of a salad thing, you know, but it isn't. It is a chocolate thing."
The current online SPS group is going through Proverbs. In one of their recent IM chats someone said,
"Well ladies I must say this is the most unique context in which I've done Bible study...sitting in bed, with my laptop, 2 dogs, and a husband who just brought me a glass of wine."
My Bible goes well with a superb coffee crumb cake and a smooth cappuccino. It's easy to manage and taken in with small bites slowly over what seems like an endless amount of time. It has a constant underlying sweetness with mements of bitter.
So, what does your Bible go good with?
