Studying the Bible is a wonderful way to begin each day, but all too often the morning does not allow for a lengthy study. Here is a monthly calendar with short devotionals that just might be the answer. Carol's "Daily Devotions from the Classics" contains 365 insightful excerpts from great Christian scholars and preachers past and present. You will be blessed by the writing of these godly men, among them Matthew Henry, Thomas Watson, Charles Spurgeon, and J. C. Ryle. The source is given at the end of each entry. Please note, however, that liberty has been taken in condensing, updating the punctuation, and slightly paraphrasing many entries, which allows for a smoother reading and clearer understanding. There has been no conscious change made in the intent of the author.

The short prayers (some slightly paraphrased) at the beginning of each day's devotional are from several classic works from the 1800s: (1) Prayers for the Use of Families by various authors (Philadelphia: John C. Clark, 1833); (2) Short Prayers for the Morning and Evening "By a Layman," vol. 1 (London: Simpkin, Marshall, & Co., 1846); and (3) Prayers for the Use of Families by William Jay (New York: M. W. Dodd, 1866).
