66 Books One Story
A Family Guide to Every Book of the Bible
If you’ve read the Bible, you probably know some of the important battles, a good chunk of the life of Jesus, maybe a Psalm or two – but what do you know about the minor prophets and the epistles? Do you have some loose ends that need tying up? This is where a book like this helps.
The Bible has one author – God – so we need to see it as one whole book, as a unite. Every book of the bible is the breath of God and the plan of redemption through Jesus Christ spans all of Scripture. In this Bible overview, each of the Bible’s 66 books is summarized; background given; themes and theology explained.
There are timelines throughout so that you can fix the context and chronology of the Bible in your mind. There is also a Salvation Thread feature that shows how God’s plan of redemption is not just part of the New Testament – but runs throughout the whole of the Bible.
“It is so exciting to see God’s beautiful tale of redemption through stories of the Bible unfolded in a format such as “this. The questions, references, thread, and overview all point to knowing God as our rescuer and hero. I look forward with anticipation to using this devotion with my children, young adult Bible studies, and as a gift to others seeking to know the truth. 66 Books One Story is a wonderful tool to see the consistency of who God was, is, and always will be.”
— Joani Burchett, mother of five boys ages 5-15
“Ever wonder how so many different books belong to the same volume, the Bible? Here is a most lively, memorable, and engaging expedition through every book of Holy Scripture. While the different authors, characters and modes are recognized and explored, everything in them centers on the one fundamental truth: the gospel of Jesus Christ. The illustrations are vivid and unforgettable. The choice of verses from each book brings-out their unique contribution, and at the same time points to the great message that makes the sixty six books a vital part of the same story: God’s relentless pursuit of his people in order to bring them into his covenant of grace. This guide makes the entire Bible really accessible. Families and small groups, parishes as well as individuals should use it to great effect. There is nothing quite like it.”
— William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
“Paul Reynolds has written an excellent resource for children, parents and churches. This book navigates the 66 books of the Bible, leading always to the Savior. If you use this book, your children will hear the gospel to the praise and glory of God and our Savior Jesus Christ.” — John & Keri Folmar
