66 Ways God Loves You by Jennifer Rothschild
This little book spends exactly three pages on each book of the Bible. The first page makes the point of how God’s love is communicated in that particular book, such as “In Genesis God Fashions Me with His Hands”, and the next two pages narrate the specifics of that point. The author always quotes at least one verse from the book and then applies it personally to the reader. The tone of the book is very reassuring and comforting. It is obviously not intended to be a scholarly work but more along the lines of a devotional. A good audience would be those who want reassurance of God’s love or those who are new to the Bible. Jennifer Rothschild writes very well. I have read several of her books, and this one is nothing like her others, where she writes from her experience. This book is more objective, applying the words of the Bible to the reader’s life. Only in the introduction does the author mention her life. I received this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review through the Thomas Nelson BookSneeze Program.
