Chris Harrison emailed us a good question about why Crossway offers Bible reading plans as RSS feeds but not the ESV version of the devotional Daily Light on the Daily Path that’s also available on the site. The answer, it turns out, is that there wasn’t a good reason.
We’ll let Chris take it from here:
A couple of days ago, I emailed the webmaster over at Good News Publishers/Crossway Books about the availability of an RSS feed for the “Daily Light on the Daily Path” devotional they have available online (and in print). I’m happy to report that as of this morning, an RSS feed is now available.
About Daily Light
For over a century, Daily Light on the Daily Path has been a favorite devotional book of those who realize the tremendous benefit of reading and praying Scripture. Originally printed in the mid-1800s, Daily Light was born out of the devout faith of Samuel Bagster, a British bookstore owner determined to share his faith with his twelve children.
The Bagsters’ daily practice of reading Scripture together, then connecting the day’s verses with other passages, inspired one of the children to compile their devotions for publication. The family discussed and prayed over the selection and arrangement of each verse until they were convinced that no further improvement could be made. After two years of prayer and consideration, the devotions were printed in two volumes for morning and evening reading.
