Seek20205 Stars Out Of 5Loved The Bible RecapJanuary 5, 2021Seek2020I completed the Bible Recap reading the bible in one year and listened to the Podcast each day. Tara Leigh is so gifted in her research and the way she was able to share information made sense to me. I bought the book to read instead of listening to the podcast for this year. I have enjoyed it so far. She recaps the readings and points out things I would never had noticed. I would highly suggest this book to go along with your reading of the bible.
Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5life ChangingJanuary 4, 2021MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mt husband and I have used the podcast that inspired this book to read through the Bible twice now. I got my copy of this book the day it was released and I was so excited and so pleased! I am a visual learner so when listening I can miss key details. This book is the perfect alternative! Even if you have never listened to the podcast, this book is life changing. Tara Leigh helps put so many confusing things about different areas of the Bible into context, while also teaching you how the entire book is one complete story, not simply a collection of smaller stories, that all point to Jesus. It really is incredible. Read through the entire Bible in a year for only about 20 minutes a day! Do it! You wont regret it!
thechristianscribeArizonaAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Bible Study Guide!December 31, 2020thechristianscribeArizonaAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible study guide is a 5-star book, easy! Wow, I am very happy to own a copy of this amazing guide, and choosing it to review was a good decision. Obviously, I haven't read through all of it but I have flipped through it and read some entries here and there and grew more excited to start it the more I read. Most daily entries discuss 2-4 chapters, it has a 1.5 page summary of the chapters and a short devotional/message at the end. I love how Tara distributed the daily chapters- not quite in Biblical order (eg, Genesis 1,2,3 to Revelation 22) but conjoined chapters from other books that speak on the same subject. I like how she interlaced the book of Psalms throughout the entries. The entire setup is smooth and easy to follow, it makes reading the entire Bible less daunting.
I had never seen a Bible study guide that went over the entire Bible in 1 year. This was a lot of work to put together I'm sure, but I'm very grateful for the author's dedication to create this invaluable tool. Before coming across this guide, I had never heard of Tara but I have since learned that she has a podcast and a ministry from hence this book came from, so I will definitely check those out. I'm excited to start 2021 reading the Bible with this guide.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great resource for reading through the BibleDecember 31, 2020bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I will be reading through the Bible this year using The Bible Recap book. I have read several of Cobble's comments on the daily Bible readings and am impressed. I have listened to her podcasts too. I have confidence in the study material provided.
The Bible reading program is a chronological one but of a different arrangement than I am used to. Cobble says to not buy a chronological Bible as it will not go along with her plan. She suggests using a Bible you have, reading the daily designated chapters in it.
Cobble's daily notes really help readers see the overall story of the Bible and how God has worked through His people. The daily written commentary is very similar to the daily podcast material. The content is the same but the written form has been edited slightly for readability. The book has wide margins so there is plenty of space for readers to write notes and even journal insights.
Perhaps what impressed me the most with Cobble's material is that where there are different interpretations of Scripture, she presents the various views. I have found that she does so without showing any of her own bias. I like that.
I highly recommend this book. Reading the Bible is essential to our understanding of God and our spiritual growth. Cobble presents a program that will help any Christian read through the Bible and gain valuable spiritual insights.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
A Mom's Quest To Teach5 Stars Out Of 5A Wonderful Chronological Bible Reading PlanDecember 30, 2020A Mom's Quest To TeachQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for my honest opinion.
I was looking for a chronological Bible reading plan and I was so happy to read and review The Bible Recap: A One-Year Guide to Reading and Understanding the Entire Bible by Tara-Leigh Cobble. This is a beautiful hardcover book of 752 pages which takes readers through the Bible over 365 days. You can start the reading plan at any time as the book is not labeled with dates but rather days (day 160, day 161, etc.).
While I have not read the book cover to cover yet (it really isn't designed that way), I have spent time reading the first several weeks worth of summaries and found them very insightful and helpful. I have also looked throughout the book and no matter which page I turn to the format is the same (which I appreciate) and the writing style is consistent and helpful.
I look forward to using this as my Bible reading plan for this year. I like the fact that each day Cobble presents "Today's God Shot" where she explains how the reading demonstrates God's character. At the end of each of these she reminds us that "He's where the joy is!" I find this to be just the reminder I need.
