Floyd JohnsonUpstate NYAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Guide Through the Believers' Most Important ResourceDecember 2, 2014Floyd JohnsonUpstate NYAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It has been 40 years since I first entered the seminary classroom. Part of my experience during that first year of classes was the Bible Content Exam. It was required of all students; but many of us were new believers, using seminary as a way to explore our faith as well as to prepare for future careers. In order to prepare for the exam, it was suggested that we use a Childrens Bible to familiarize ourselves with the many stories that compose the Biblical record. This book, aimed at a slightly older audience, would have served that purpose well.
The key stories of the Bible are divided into 365 readings. Each reading consists of a reference to the passage in question, a retelling of the story (including Biblical quotations as appropriate), and a brief devotional thought. There are about 200 stories from the Old Testament and 165 from the New Testament. Some stories draw from both the original passage and the NT retelling of the story. The devotionals are a mixture of thoughtful discourse and practical instruction - a blend I much enjoyed.
Along with seminary student (this is not the intended audience) the book would serve well as an introduction to the Bible for the new Christian and as a guide for the long time believer to explore a book he or she may know too well. It will open up new or forgotten passages as well as add new understanding to well-known passages. No believer is beyond the need to grow - this book can aid in that process.
