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 Thoughts:
In our society and in the church across the world, where biblical illiteracy is a huge issue, The Good Book is a needed resource.  I'm thankful for Deron Spoo's work in pulling together the information in this book.
The content of the book presents solid theological ideas regarding who Jesus is and Salvation and also highlights the thread of redemption that runs from Genesis to Revelation.  
The features that I really appreciate:

  1. Prior to each chapter, the biblical passage is provided for the reader in the Christian Standard Bible version.
  2. The "commentary" on each chapter is in a digestible size and does not leave out an application of the biblical passage.
  3. At the end of each chapter is a "for reflection" portion.
The Good Book is a solid resource for personal/devotional use, for one on one discipleship purposes, or for small group study.
