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.

The Good Book: 40 Chapters That Reveal the Bible's Biggest Ideas based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I am enjoying working through this book. Each section is composed of five chapters and I like the way these chapters are “bite-sized”. I am folding this reading into my quiet time and that is working nicely. The five chapters in each section build the case for the idea that is covered in each section. I like the way the Bible reading is actually printed right in the book and is followed by the authors explanation. The ideas presented in The Good Book do indeed seem to give a general, overall framework for what are some major themes in the Bible. The author does not go into arguments to prove the claims of the Bible, or into a word by word breakdown. The ideas appear focused on increasing the understanding of how God could be working in an individual’s life, based on how He has worked through the past. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
It's rare. Or practically never that I get my highlighter out. I just don't normally mark up my books. Or turn down pages. The Good Book is different. I couldn't help but grab my highlighter. It's that good. Taking 40 chapters of the Bible and breaking them down and revealing God's truth and God's love in a way that makes the Bible more readable than ever before. I would recommend this amazing book for anyone. A mature reader/believer will uncover and discover a newer and challenging understanding of God's promises. A younger or new believer or seeker will be drawn in; quite possible for the first time and feel God's love and presence. I recommend The Good Book for everyone. I work in a juvenile prison. I think that the young men we work with would be challenged and feel God's love like never before. I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.
