Book Review: 90 Days in John 14-17, Romans, & James

As Christians, we need to be people of the Word. We need to be a people who study and know the Word. This is needed today as much as ever. We live in a day of biblical illiteracy. Unfortunately, devotionals meant for growing a Christian’s understanding and living often fail to produce. Why? Because while it may share a Bible verse with the thought for that day, it does not encourage the reader to dig in deeper their study of the Bible. Not all is lost, though. There are those out there who see this same need and have the initiative to do something about. That is why I am excited to share with you Explore By The Book: 90 Days in John 14-17, Romans, & James.

explore_by_bookPublished by the Good Book Company, this devotional features a verse by verse study through Romans and James as well as John 14-17. Pastors Timothy Keller and Sam Allberry serve as the reader’s guide through these three books of the Bible over the course of 90 Days. While some devotionals can be read with little Bible reading done, it is not so with this volume of Explore by the Book. This book not only points you to the Book, it also walks you through it. These devotionals place before the reader questions of the text in regards to observation and application. Keller and Allberry also direct the student of the Bible in how they can pray based on what they’ve just studied.

Explore By The Book: 90 Days in John 14-17, Romans, and James will lead the reader into a great understanding of what God’s Word means and how it can be applied in life. What many devotionals lack, The Good Book company has produced in Explore By The Book. If you are a Christian who desires substance in their Bible reading, then pick up a copy of this volume.

I received this book for free from The Good Book Company via Cross Focused Reviews for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own and are my honest review of the book.
