66 Love Letters
A Conversation with God That Invites You into His Story
by Larry Crabb
This book is a truly wonderful addition to any biblical library. I couldn’t help thinking that it’s best use would be while a person is reading through the Bible in a year or other Bible reading schedule. When reaching each new book of the Bible, I suggest a reader pull out 66 Love Letters and read the Love Letter from the Lord before delving into the Scriptures. Doing so will bless the reader. And I intend to be blessed by each Love Letter again as I go through the Bible in my current reading program.
Here’s the blurb:
The story of God written in intimate love letters just for you.
Dr. Larry Crabb knows that if we could see the larger story of God and humanity, our world would never be the same. That story is found in large part in the sixty-six letters of the Bible.
Written in a conversational first person, as if God is speaking directly to us, Dr. Crabb looks at each individual book in scripture and boils it down to a one- or two-sentence message to us from that particular book. He then unpacks each sentence in a short chapter answering the question, What does God want me to hear from this love letter? The book’s epilogue then fits all sixty-six pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together into one coherent paragraph and reveals the beautiful picture of what God has been about since the creation of the world. Far from being comprehensive, this is a personal approach to helping readers know God and his great love for them, his message for all mankind, and how their lives fit into His larger story.
