The story of God written in intimate love letters just for you.
Dr. Larry Crabb knows that if we could see the larger story of God and humanity, our world would never be the same. That story is found in large part in the sixty-six letters of the Bible.
Written in a conversational first person, as if God is speaking directly to us, Dr. Crabb looks at each individual book in scripture and boils it down to a one- or two-sentence message to us from that particular book. He then unpacks each sentence in a short chapter answering the question, What does God want me to hear from this love letter? The book's epilogue then fits all 66 pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together into one coherent paragraph and reveals the beautiful picture of what God has been about since the creation of the world. Far from being comprehensive, this is a personal approach to helping readers know God and his great love for them, his message for all mankind, and how their lives fit into His larger story.

Packed chock-a-block with inspiring truths. A profound insight into the true message of the Bible. Highly recommend this to anyone seeking a better understanding of their relationship with God.
First of all, this is a heavy book. It talks a lot about subjects that most churches and Christians do not. This book is taking every book in the Bible as a personal letter written by God to the reader. This book has helped me grow up my faith in a dimension I did not know I was lacking. This book was very honest and helped me understand and focus on areas I didn't know I was lacking in. I would very much recommend for those looking to develop their faith.
I will listen to the book many times. It is that good. This is the most unique experience I have ever had with a book. The intimacy that one develops with the author and our God is very personal. Listening and thinking about this book and the bible has exposed me and revealed to me my pride, unbelief and self-centeredness while at the same time pointing toward God and his grace, mercy and love. I am loving learning about God's story and how my story fits in God's story. This book is amazing in helping the listener and/or reader understand God's love and embrace His movements toward us so what we can fully enter His story with ours.
Learning through the life of Solomon that Success is not Greatness.
Larry and Jim do a wonderful job reading this book, however, I wish Jim's voice was more different from Larry's. I keep wishing the voice of God was deeper and more distinct from Larry's content.
No, it is not designed to be experienced that way.
By His grace (and not the Governments)
I feel like I know Christ better with this Audible book. I now can see, more clearly, who God, Christ and the Holy Spirit are, through all of time, and God's people.
Larry's willingness to be transparent and vulnerable vs. being "perfect."
Larry being Larry. I love the vulnerability.
Yes.....but that is not wise. This is not "baby's milk." This is a "66 course meal" to be chewed carefully, fully, and thoughtfully.
I would recommend any Christian, from new birth to seasoned in the faith, listen to this, at least once a year.
I very good book breaking down scriptures into simple understandable principles. It is not a theological study so there may be many areas that you may disagree with. However I feel that it was an overall good presentation of the Bible.
...don't bother. Very disappointing. Very judgemental.
Never. I'm trying to find my way to God...not fear Him.
The description is misleading. I would never have spent money on this book had I known the truth. Be more honest describing this book!
