About the Book & Author
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16),
… And now modern technology makes it possible for people everywhere to connect with Biblical truth in a very special and unique way. In the Bible and on the phone, one minute and one day at time; that’s what The BIBLE & Phone Minute is all about. It’s a daily connection with God’s Word simply by reading and/or making a phone call. 1 minute x 365 days = 1 year of working your way through Bible passages from most New Testament and some Old Testament chapters. A tiny comment accompanies each Bible passage to help the reader/listener focus on and make a self-application of the scriptures. The book is also recommended for Sunday School and Bible study groups in an overview study of highly treasured NT scriptures. A Teaching and Study Guide to assist teachers is also available on the “For Bible Study Teachers” page of this website.
Author Elmer Winner, completed this work at the age of nearly 80 years; and during at least 60 of those years he has dedicated his life to reading, studying, teaching, and endeavoring to live by the truth of God’s Word.
