God’s Story in 66 Verses

“Here at BreakPoint and the Colson Center, we’ve been preaching about the need to communicate with our culture not only through facts and arguments, but also through stories, and that’s what Stan has pulled off in God’s Story in 66 Verses. It leads you through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, by focusing on verses that help you grasp what each book is about, and what the Bible as a whole is about.”
–Eric Metaxas
Commentator and Author

“The old, old story of the gospel is rooted in God’s story of his kingdom, which is the theme of the whole Bible. With his arresting single-verse skill, and moving fast, Stan Guthrie shows how every biblical book contributes to both stories. Excellent!”
–J.I. Packer
Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology at Regent College

God’s Story in 66 Verses: Understand the Entire Bible by Focusing on Just One Verse in Each Book

The Bible can seem like a big, intimidating book—mysterious, confusing, 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.
