About the book

Develop a deeper relationship with God and a deeper understanding of His word in just 90 days! You may believe the Bible’s overall message, but have you truly grasped the whole story? Sometimes understanding the Scriptures seems daunting. Though God’s message of love is simple, so that even a child may embrace it, His epic story is complex enough to mystify even the most curious intellect. We grasp the pieces much more easily than we comprehend the whole.

In 90 Days Thru the Bible, acclaimed devotional writer Chris Tiegreen and Walk Thru the Bible guide you through the major sections of Scripture, meditating on how each story and theme, like the pieces of a puzzle, beautifully contributes to God’s great story. You'll come to understand the heart of God, and the awe-inspiring story he's telling, like never before. With a 13-session guide and discussion questions for reflection, this is the perfect resource for small groups, individuals, and church groups.

My Thoughts

For the past two years, I regularly see the challenge of reading through the Bible in 90 days – 3 months of reading through the Word of God.    I am impressed by all who participates and sticks to the reading for that period of time.   I never really participated as of yet.   I like the challenge but with homeschooling, dealing with reviews and doing other things with my family, I don’t think I would be able to do it.   But when I discovered the 90 Days Thru the Bible I knew I could use this book to challenge me in my Bible readings.

The book is divided in –yes you’ve guessed it – 90 days of reading through the Bible. I starts with the Old Testament and concludes with the New Testament.  Each day contains a reading based on the section to read during the day.   I would highly suggest that you read the Scriptures and then read the chapter.   At the end of the chapter, you will get some questions for reflections and at that time it would be good for you to take your journal out and answer to them.   That way, not only will it get you to stretch your journaling but it will also help you to start a new daily routine in your life.

The book also contains discussion questions for small groups.   You could easily take this and go through the Bible with your home group.  Each and every one would then encourages and be accountable to each other as you go through it.   I think it is a marvelous way to have a group discovering the Bible together.  Essentially, they are the same questions found at the end of each chapter but place on the readings of the week.  In total you have 13 sessions for a home group.

This book is a gift in disguise because I want to challenge myself to read through the Bible in 2013.   More than likely I will go through it in the summer time when the demands in my life are not as strong.    I believe that it is a book that every family should have in their home.  It could be a nice gift to others as well.

90 Days Thru the Bible is available at your favourite bookstore, even at amazon.ca and amazon.com.
