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.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, how it would be laid out or what all would be within the book. Deron has divided this book into 40 chapters, each chapter focusing on a section of the Bible, beginning with the very first chapter of the Bible, Genesis 1, and stressing just how priceless each of us are, as we are each made in God's image. The Biblical text is shared at the start of each chapter followed by a discussion of the passage and personal application. I found this book to be eye-opening as far as some of the common passages of the Bible, but having them approached in a different way. I love the messages and insights from Biblical scholars, historical figures and others included in this book as well. I would recommend really taking your time reading through this book as there is so much included and so much self-reflection and study that can be done.
