Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Interesting insights connected to locationsFebruary 28, 2018Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Along the Road" looks at different events in the Bible that happened in the same city or area. The author looked at the relationship between the different events and how people at the later event would have thought back to what happened there before. For example, Jesus raised a young man from the dead close to a city where a prophet also raised a young man from the dead, and the people called Jesus a prophet after the miracle.
The author looked at five types of geographic connections: fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies, tests where humans had failed but Jesus succeeded, places where Jesus confronted pagan strongholds, places that helped reveal Jesus as the Son of God, and how the location connected into the message that Jesus was preaching. The author summarized the events that happened at each place, the connections between them, what the landscape looked like, and where it was located. The book contains maps showing where these events occurred.
Each chapter takes about 5 to 10 minutes to read, so it would work well as a devotional. Overall, I highly recommend this interesting and insightful book.
