Item Description...
The Runner's Bible is a daily spiritual respite for busy people on the run. First published by Houghtin Mifflin in 1913, with more than 60 printings since that time, this classic "prayer Bible" has been a blessing to countless individuals who seek guidance from Scripture. It was originally compiled and annotated by Nora Holm in 1910 for her "on-the-run" 17 year old daughter. Holm felt the book would be of great value to people of all ages, especially in our fast-paced society. The Runner's Bible is rich with more than 1,000 Bible passages and brief commentaries that shed light on every life issue.

Now more than ever, The Runner's Bible offers a peaceful, quiet moment in a hectic, stressful world. According to Polly Berrien Berends, author of several books, including, Whole Child, Whole Parent, "The Runner's Bible is the best spiritual aid for daily prayerful living I know. Not many people have heard of it, and booksellers often assume it is for joggers. Nevertheless, there have been 68 printings of this gem of a book, thanks to the word of mouth of its faithful underground. A compilation of biblical quotes and the author's own wise, inspired commentary, The Runner's Bible is a spiritual oxygen tank, infirmary, and compass for reviving, healing and reorienting busy, searching souls. Most who come to know The Runner's Bible keep multiple copies. The God encountered in The Runner's Bible is not a hypothetical faroff superperson, but an intimate, immediate presence and underlying source and force of personal being. Organized around such themes as love, thanks, healing, forgiveness, and reassurance, it can be sought in moments of particular need. Just as a frequently checked compassprevents one from getting lost, regular and frequent use of The Runner's Bible can help to keep us from spiritually walking off cliffs and stumbling into ditches".

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Cracker Jack Morning Quiet Time Help  Jul 14, 2008
Here's a book I highly and repectfully recommend of AAs, 12 Step recovery people, and Big Book and Bible study groups. If you want a suggestion for what to use in reviewing early A.A. spiritual principles, renewed mind Bible segments, and further Bible study, this is the book or you. Dr. Bob used it regularly and recommended it highly. Its great virtue is that it fits early A.A. needs and practices to a "T." It ranked high in topical Bible study. SeeThe Good Book and the Big Book: A.A.'s Roots in the Bible (Bridge Builders Edition). It ranked high in the books that A.A.'s cofounder Dr. Bob studied, recommended, and circulated Dr. Bob and His Library: A Major A.A. Spiritual Source. It was the type of study guide that followed the lines of Christian Endeavor groups who had Bible studies, prayer meetings, conversions, Quiet Hour, and reading religious literature. These were the principles Dr. Bob learned as a youngster in Vermont.Dr. Bob of Alcoholics Anonymous: His Excellent Training in the Good Book As a Youngster in VermontAnd it certainly belongs in the library of those observing morning quiet times Good Morning!: Quiet Time, Morning Watch, Meditation, and Early A.A.
The Runner's Bible  Mar 6, 2008
I LOVE this Bible. I first came across it when I found a very old version from 1913. My old one is very small in size and so old it is falling apart. I did a search to get a new one to carry and a few extras to share others. Even in the newer version it is still the same word for word. It is very easy to use and just what you need if your on the run! The title couldn't be more PERFECT!
Excellent devotional  Aug 24, 2007
This book from 1910 does exactly what it describes by providing a quick-start for devotionals. By selecting a verse or two by subject or at random, you have a meaningful focus for reflection, meditation or prayer immediately. It is not surprising that my experience is that God uses my selections for current issues in my life. This guide works easily with other disciplines, because you can adjust the time for reflection or prayer to the time you make for it. Just like Oswald Chamber's My Utmost for His Highest, devotions from the early part of the 20th century seem to be as timeless and eternally important as the Bible.
The Runners Bible  Mar 25, 2007
This is spiritual food I take it with me when I fly, at sea at home lots of wisdom and well written for those not ready for Old and New Testament.
A Meditation for Living Right Daily  Nov 16, 2002
I found this book while looking for some history in the
kind of meditation books for recovering alcoholics. People
who have proved that their lives have changed miraculously
by the practice of principles and living on spiritual basis.
This little book is amazing. Just a few lines of encouragement
each day. Spirituality is indeed a feeding of the mind on the
wholeness and beauty that comes from God. Many basic principles
learned here add peace to my life. The combination of scriptures

with little commentary is especially good for those of us looking
to feed ourselves spiritually in a short time - on the run.
Sometimes you can find a real gem. This book is so simply but
edifying and uplifting. To meditate on my heavly Father (from
whom all blessings flow). Use it. I'm thankful I found it.
My husband didn't read much scripture -- but he does read this
little book.!! Thanks to the Author!!
