There are sixty-six books in the Bible that make up the ‘Greatest Story ever told.’ The Old Testament contains thirty-nine books, and the New Testament contains twenty-seven books. You want to read and understand them, but you find them challenging to the point that you give up. You are not alone.
Author Ellen Childs’ Condensed Book of the New Testament will help you more fully understand those twenty-seven books and the story they tell. Childs condenses almost every major event from the New Testament into a manageable and easily understood format. Jesus’ miracles, parables, and teachings are grouped together from
all four gospels.
The Condensed Book of the New Testament will make the Bible come alive as never before. You can easily read this entire book in a week, but read it again and again, because you will learn something new every time you read it. It is my prayer that you will be encouraged to read "The Rest of the Book – the Bible; the Inspired Word of God!" This guide to the Bible will change your life.
As you walk through the three big categories of Christian life—beliefs, practices, and virtues—you’ll begin a journey that will take you closer to the heart of Jesus and deeper into the words of Scripture. You’ll learn what the Bible has to say about everything from the nature of God and the identity of Jesus, to prayer, worship, and the fruit of the Spirit. Each big category is divided into ten topics to give you an up-close look at the important things God wants you to know. Relevant, practical, and deeply fundamental, Believe: Student Edition is a must-read for any student serious about their faith.
The Bible is more than just a book of stories. It’s a blueprint for living. Let the words of God change you as you learn how to think, act, and become more like Jesus.
