Book Review - The Good Book


A chapter from the Bible accompanies each chapter of the book, which helps readers understand the context and content of the Scripture passages in a way that can open the whole Bible.
Designed as a forty-day journey through forty key chapters of the Bible,  The Good Book will appeal to those who already love and read the Bible regularly as well as to those who are just beginning their Christian journey.

The Good Book:

-is a great evangelism tool for explaining the major themes of Scripture to those who want to know more about God, Jesus, and the core beliefs of Christianity;
-gives new believers an overview of the Bible and lays a framework to help them understand Scripture passages;
-helps longtime Christians rediscover the basic themes of Scripture and experience these truths in a new way; and
-encourages Scriptural literacy as it pushes readers to read both one chapter of the book and one chapter of the Bible each day for forty days.

The Good Book is great for individuals, and it can also be used by small groups in an eight-week church-wide program or a forty-week journey that focuses on one Bible chapter each week.
The Good Book will help people understand and live by the transformative truths of the Bible.

Oh my goodness - this book is absolutely amazing! It is geared toward the new believer but, honestly, I learned so much and had such a new insight to Scripture through this book!

It's 40 chapters of the Bible, focusing on the biggest ideas that we should know about. It by no means infers that there are only 40 chapters worth reading but it truly focuses in on the chapters that tells us who God is.

Each chapter starts out with the Scripture from the Bible that we are focusing on, then there is an explanation after this gives us insight to what we've read. It's definitely not like reading a text book as the author brings life into his explanations with stories and fresh writing. I learned so much from what the author shared. He doesn't talk down to the reader but draws us in by showing how timely and exciting the Word of God is!

At the end of this are statements and questions for reflection. I really enjoyed this as I was able to focus in on what I learned and dig deeper into the chapter that was taught on. As many years as I have studied the Bible, I was amazed at all the treasures I found through this book. It's truly fantastic!

It is definitely a good book for new believers or would be a great book for sharing the Gospel principles to others. I love how it explains things so well without being dry. It's an excellent book and I highly recommend it! I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
