God’s Story in 66 Verses
Understand the Entire Bible by Focusing on Just One Verse in Each Book
By Stan Guthrie
Treasure 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.
The book, not yet published, is available for pre-order (at a discount) on Amazon.com. The author is available to be booked for speaking engagements and interviews about God’s Story in 66 Verses. Just e-mail him at guthsc[at]att.net.
