Understanding the 66 Books of the Bible by David Jeremiah
Liked this one quite a bit – it included a brief overview of the books, as well as a key thought, scripture, prayer, and action. Super brief, but it worked well at what it was – a cursory sketch of each book.
Insight’s Archaeology Handbook by Insight for Living
By “handbook” this one means “overview” as well – this is not an in-depth look at things by any means. It focuses on 10 key archaeological findings, and how they connect to the Bible. I enjoyed it, and it was just the amount of depth I wanted right now.
Praying God’s Word for Your Husband by Kathi Lipp
Liked the structure for this – she’s pulled together scriptures relating to specific topics, so you can pray for your husband directly from the Bible. Topics include things like his relationships (with God and others), safety, work, etc.
Strange Gods by Elizabeth Scalia
I think it’s easy to believe that we don’t have idols any more (at least not the same way they did back in Old Testament times), but Scalia explains how easy it is to have modern idols: idols of self, of plans, of technology, of sex. Everything in our lives has the potential to become an idol. Some of the specifics she details I skimmed as they seemed to relate more for Catholics, but even as a Protestant I found most of the book eye-opening and worth reading.
Stop Dating the Church!: Fall in Love with the Family of God by Joshua Harris
Perfectly timed read as far as our church search goes – it was more motivation to find one and get settled into it, truly making it our home. (Link goes to the revised version, which has a new title.)
