The Good Book: 40 Chapters That Reveal the Bible’s Biggest Ideas (David C. Cook, April 2017)

The Good Book offers a user-friendly guide to the Bible’s biggest ideas.

A chapter from the Bible accompanies each chapter of the book, which helps readers understand the context and content of the Scripture passages in a way that can open the whole Bible.

Designed as a forty-day journey through forty key chapters of the Bible, The Good Book will appeal to those who already love and read the Bible regularly as well as to those who are just beginning their Christian journey.

The Good Book:
—is a great evangelism tool for explaining the major themes of Scripture to those who want to know more about God, Jesus, and the core beliefs of Christianity;
—gives new believers an overview of the Bible and lays a framework to help them understand Scripture passages;
—helps longtime Christians rediscover the basic themes of Scripture and experience these truths in a new way; and
—encourages Scriptural literacy as it pushes readers to read both one chapter of the book and one chapter of the Bible each day for forty days.

The Good Book is great for individuals, and it can also be used by small groups in an eight-week church-wide program or a forty-week journey that focuses on one Bible chapter each week. The Good Book will help people understand and live by the transformative truths of the Bible.

  • I thought this would be another theological spiritual book filled with tough and unbearable concept about Bible passages. To my surprise Deron Spoo chose very easy-to-understand voice in dis-ciphering 40 biggest ideas through the Scriptures.

  • This is especially helpful for new converts as well as Bible study leaders. But it’s also a great tool for everyone. We all have the goal of a personal relationship with God, this is a handbook to help you with that.

  • Geaux2Girl says:

    It’s not supposed to take the place of Bible reading but rather to help give context and color to what sometimes is too familiar or utterly foreign, depending on your upbringing. Think of it as an introductory study book for the new believer or someone still seeking to understand what the Bible is all about. ‘The Good Book’ is definitely a step apart from the usual Bible studies. When you are ready to approach God’s word from a new, birdseye, perspective, pick this one up.

  • Some of what the author wrote might help new Christians get a sense of hat God is saying and how it impacts your life. It is meant to help people know God, it is a starting place, then people can explore the many chapters left in the Bible that has so much to feed on. I don’t think the author meant to write the book as a shortcut to deeper studies or reading through the whole Bible, so I hope readers don’t use this book in that manner.

  • This is a good book for people who are not familiar with the Bible. Reading the whole Bible may seem intimidating but reading the 40 major themes is doable. The Bible passages are included so no need to have a Bible alongside. The commentary by Spoo is informative and I like his reflection questions too.

  • This is a great tool to use as you study the Bible or read it alone. It breaks the bible down to where it’s easy to understand what’s being said. I like the historical information the author adds as well as the stories he shares. He has highlighted forty chapters and points out how the things that happened years ago are still relevant to us today.

  • If you are looking for a closer walk with God, then please, look no further than this book. It is a book that is well written, and well organized. The aspects of this book are wonderful and really leave the reader thinking things through.

  • A good book for anyone that likes to study the Bible but has a hard time figuring out the passages. It has smooth written chapters that helps to organize thought and discuss it in groups.

  • THE GOOD BOOK by Deron Spoo is a 40 day journey that can help you know the Bible if it is new for you, or, learn deeper truths and grow closer to God. There is a Bible story followed by contemporary explanations and examples that help understand the Bible better. I loved this book. I thought going in it might be geared more for someone who is new to the Bible and that I might “know” everything. I loved the way the author gave further commentary and information, especially the history and personal examples.

  • In the introduction, the author discussed how the bible is hard to understand at times, even for advanced readers at times. I know I struggle with certain things in the bible, which is why I downloaded a few translations on both my Kindle and phone to better understand context.
