66 Love Letters-Book Review

66 Love Letters-A Conversation With God That Invites You Into His Story by Dr.Larry Crabb

“The Bible is a love story that begins with a divorce. Everything from the third chapter of Genesis through the end of Revelation is the story of a betrayed lover wooing us back into His arms so we can enjoy the love of family forever.”

This is the first book of Dr. Crabb that I’ve read.  He recounts a sleepless night struggling to hear from God.  Asking questions like, “What do You want me get from Leviticus?”, “Why is it important to study Obadiah?” and “What are You trying to get me to hear in Revelation?”, the idea for this book was born.

I wouldn’t recommend reading this book on it’s own, as each chapter is devoted to each book of the Bible. Reading it straight through, as I tried to do, left me wanting.  However, I do believe this book is a great companion to read along with your Bible.  On a personal note, I usually give books away after I post a review but this one I’m definitely keeping as a study aid. For a free downloadable study guide, http://www.newwayministries.org/66loveletters.php.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishing as part of their Book Sneeze Blogging Program in exchange for a book review.  I was not required to give a favorable review.
