The Good Book By Deron Spoo

The Good Book offers a user-friendly guide to the Bible's biggest ideas. 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.

My Review...
40 major topics broke down to make your Bible reading more personal .
This is especially helpful for new converts as well as Bible study leaders. But it's also a great tool for everyone.
We all have the goal of a personal relationship with God, this is a handbook to help you with that.
It's not a light read and it's not a deep read it's got your scripture and reflection in each chapter. Its just right for your Bible study time.
Spoo wants every one to dig deeper in Gods word. This book will help you do just that.
I gave this book 4 stars. I recommend it.
I received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
