Book Review by Val Viljoen
This newly released book takes the reader through the bible in forty chapters, each corresponding to a key bible chapter. The purpose is to explore the bible’s major themes and overall message in forty days.
I welcomed the opportunity to get an overview of God’s word in a relatively short period of time. In over 30 years of bible reading I have used various plans of going through the entire bible – usually over the period of a year. While this is of course of immense value, there is sometimes a sense of not seeing the wood for the trees.
Deron Spoo’s unlocking of core truths gives the reader access to God’s heart and mind, making the whole bible seem more easily readable.
So whether you are a relative new-comer to the bible wanting a guide to get you started in understanding God’s word and its relevance to your life, or if you are eager for a further reminder of and insight into scripture’s major themes, this book is well worth acquiring.
