Book DescriptionTreasure God's Word in sixty-six easy verses.
The Bible can seem like a big, intimidating book-mysterious, tedious, and often hard to understand. Written over a span of fifteen hundred years, two millennia ago, God's Word sometimes feels like a mishmash of stories and literary styles. What can be done to make it more accessible to twenty-first-century readers?
Stan Guthrie's answer: begin by zooming in on one key verse for each of the Bible's sixty-six books. Seeking to bring clarity and simplicity to the study of God's Word, Guthrie has written a concise, easy-to-digest collection of wisdom anchored in one verse for each book, from Genesis to Revelation-a verse that summarizes or lays the foundation for that book, placing it in context with the rest of the Scriptures.
Read this book, and you'll feel as if you've read the entire Bible-but you'll also yearn to continue mining its depths and exploring its richness on your own.

What a fascinating concept by author Stan Guthrie: understanding the entire bible by focusing on just one verse. Well, I had to delve into this one to see if he could do it!
God's Story in 66 Verses Understand the Entire Bible by Focusing on Just One Verse in Each Book By Stan Guthrie was published on January 6th, 2015. While I do not think this should the only book that someone has as reference for biblical study and understanding, I think it can be an excellent addition to a biblical reference library. It also is a good book to give to someone who is a new Christian who finds tackling the entire bible to be overwhelming.
It is very interesting to see which verse Guthrie has chosen from the each of the 66 books of the Bible. Guthrie also provides a good recap of each book of the Bible. This provides a good refresher for anyone studying the bible.
I do recommend God's Story in 66 Verses. It is very informative and an interesting perspective for biblical study.
