A Scholar's Devotion

A Scholar’s Devotion with Norman Geisler

Going through seminary, students are taught to study the Bible and uphold its doctrines about God while also being encouraged not to neglect their devotional times with God. Yet during my own devotional time I, and probably many others, often ask, “Is this approach the best way to grow spiritually, or is there a better way? What could I do differently? Should I incorporate my studies with my devotions?”  

Each week, I ask a different scholar two questions about how he or she spends time with the Lord and continues to love him with all their mind, strength, and heart. While no one method or style is “the only way,” we can draw on one another’s experiences. 

This week, I have asked Dr. Norman Geisler Grindheim if he would share his thoughts with us.

1. How do you spend your devotional time with the Lord, and how do you practically seek to deepen your love for Christ?

I read at least one chapter of the Bible every day–from Genesis to Revelation. I also change the translation I read. Thus, I am being exposed to the whole counsel of God. Also my wife and I pray together every day.  


Dr. Norman Geisler taught at many seminaries, two of which were Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) and Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS). He has written many books. These include Systematic Theology (One Volume)Christian Apologetics, Christian EthicsChosen But FreeVital Issues in the Inerrancy Debate, When Skeptics Ask, and many more. 

Thank you, Dr. Geisler!
