When Painter introduces someone to the Bible, he invites them to start with the book of John, then re-read it six times. To him, God’s Word never gets old and he continues to discover new details each time he reviews the familiar texts. He wants his readers to stay excited about Bible study and continue to discover new “nuggets” of truth.
“So often when we study the Word of God,…we continue to revisit those familiar passages, drama, and portrayals that we have become accustomed to over the years. While it is good to repeat them it also subjects us to taking them for granted,” said Painter.
Over more than 50 years as a believer, Dr. Dewey E. Painter, Sr. has served as a pastor, missionary, Christian university and seminary chancellor and professor, and USAF/CAP chaplain, Bible teacher and layman during 20+ years of military service.
