What Others Are Saying…

“Monica Sharman knows her Bible, but more than that, she savors it. She has tasted and seen the goodness of the Holy Scriptures, and she doesn’t want any of us to miss it. That’s the heart behind this treasure of a book: Behold the Beauty. Prepare to fall in love with God’s Word all over again as you travel through Behold the Beauty, a book that is—at once—full of whimsy and wisdom. You won’t read the Bible the same way again.”
– Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of Love Idol

“Behold the Beauty: An Invitation to Bible Reading is like a warm invitation to dinner with close friends. It’s perfect for people who are new to the Bible. Completely free of dogma, or guilt, it provides the encouragement and direction newcomers need to discover the delights of reading the Bible for themselves. Monica Sharman never talks down to her readers. Instead, with warmth, intelligence, and joy, she writes as if she were sharing intimately over coffee. But it’s not just for newcomers. If you need a creative kick-start to your Bible reading, look no further. No matter how many years you’ve been reading the Bible, Behold the Beauty will draw you back to the pages of God’s Word with new curiosity and fresh passion.”
– Cynthia Hyle Bezek, author of Prayer and the Word of God

“By way of telling her own personal stories, Monica Sharman invites us back into the Story strong enough to hold us all. It’s an invitation with purpose—that our joy might be full.”
– John Blase, poet and author of Know When To Hold ‘Em: The High Stakes Game of Fatherhood
