Publisher's Description

Grasp God’s Word in sixty-six easy verses

The Bible can seem like a big, intimidating book—mysterious, archaic, and often hard to understand. Written over a span of fifteen hundred years, and completed nearly two millennia ago, God’s Word sometimes feels like a mishmash of stories and literary styles. How can twenty-first-century readers—like you—make sense of it all?

Author Stan Guthrie’s answer: begin by zooming in on one key verse for each of the Bible’s sixty-six books. Seeking to bring clarity and simplicity to the study of God’s Word, Guthrie has written a concise, easy-to-digest collection of wisdom anchored by one verse for each book, from Genesis to Revelation—a verse that summarizes or lays the foundation for that book, placing it in context with the rest of the Scriptures.

Read this book, and you’ll feel as if you’ve read the entire Bible—but you’ll also yearn to continue exploring its depths and mining its riches on your own.

    I was concerned when I first saw the title of this book. God provided 66 books in the Bible - how could anyone fairly reduce each book to a single verse? Obviously, one cannot.

    However, unlike the title suggests, the Stan Guthrie does not do so. Rather than providing a commentary on 66 verses, he provides a rather complete introduction to each of the 66 book beginning with what most of us would call the key verse.

    As is my usual practice with such books, rather than reading the entire book, I spend time exploring those books I am currently studying. This week that involves the book of Galatians in the NT (from which I am preaching) and the book of Joel in the OT (the subject of a small group Bible Study I am part of). In each case the author has created an accurate introduction to the texts, using not just the key text but several key texts found throughout the book being studied. I found the book easy to read and follow - even though it has a degree of depth I might not expect from such an introduction. Though written for a more scholarly audience, the content and overview provided is similar to that provided by Henrietta Mears in her classic, What the Bible is All About. The content could also serve as an the book introduction similar to that found at the beginning of most Study Bibles, but with a bit more depth.

    The book could be a good Bible introduction for anyone seeking to read the Bible through in a year or two. It could also serve as the starting point for a sermon series moving a congregation through the entire Bible - a dream of mine, but unlikely to occur given my current congregation. content is too brief to serve as a Bible Introduction text in a College or Seminary course, but might serve that purpose well in a Sunday School or small group Bible Study.

    I wondered how Stan Guthrie was going to pull this off? How can you choose one verse from each of the 66 books of the Bible? In his newest book, God's Story in 66 Verses: Understanding the Entire Bible by Focusing on Just One Verse in Each Book, Guthrie tackles a big challenge.

    Guthrie chooses one passage from each book of the Bible, but does not just focus on that one verse, instead he moves on from that point and writes about how that verse fits into the bigger picture of the Bible.

    The book is not difficult to understand. Each chapter builds upon the previous chapters. I would recommend reading this book more as a devotional, than trying to plow through in a couple of days. Each chapter is no more than four pages, which makes this a nice 2 month devotional.

    I received this book from Booksneeze.com in exchange for an impartial review.
