Before you blow off this book because it is sacrilegious or heretical (due to “condensing” the Bible into 66 verses) know that it was never meant to replace the Bible. It is meant to be a resource, a supplemental reading if you will. It can also be used successfully for daily, weekly, monthly or when the mood strikes, meditation. The author, Stan Guthrie, has taken each book (all 66) of the Bible and picked out the verse that best represents that book. In addition to that one special verse, the book presents other verses that support and back up this choice as well as the author’s input. If reading the entire Bible seems daunting, this is an easy way to get the highlights of each book. This is also a good gift for anyone beginning to get interested in what the Bible has to say.
