The Starting Line
A good starting point will set up the remainder of the race. There’s a good possibility that the starting line makes the difference in the mindset of the runner. If they don’t have a good start, they may not have a finish at all.
The first step is KEY. I believe that Stan Guthrie sees that amongst people both interested and uninterested in the bible. Therefore, he has developed a wonderful starting point in this new book.
This book is not just 66 one sentence verses. It is much more than that.
Guthrie takes an entire passage out of each book of the bible and delves into it’s implications and place amongst the entire storyline of the bible. This has many benefits.
- Understanding the main thread of scripture…
- Understanding the themes of each book and it’s place in the puzzle of the grand story…
- Creates a roadmap with significant stopping points along the way that help reader move further into the story..
- Helps the reader put together the pieces of the story…
This starting point will implore readers to become more interested in the bible and will help them see how God has been at work since before our time and through the end of our time. The bible is about God and it is where we get to know Him. So get to the starting line and prepare yourself for a race worth running.
