Finding The Love of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation by Elyse Fitzpatrick
A Book Review
Ever wonder what the point of reading the Bible is? It’s just a history book. What does it mean for me today? I can’t understand it. Do any of these thoughts go through your head when someone mentions the Bible? This book is here to help you; to answer your questions and help you see how the Bible connects within itself and also connects and is very relevant to us today. The author begins by explaining why the Bible is important and what it is ultimately about. It’s not about me. It’s about God. It is God’s love story! Then she goes on to introduce and explain 4 categories to use while reading the Bible to help you see Jesus in stories about Moses or Abraham or any other place in the Bible, because Jesus is all over the Bible. He isn’t just in the Gospels (New Testament) when he walked the Earth. The Bible comes alive when you can see how Jesus is in it all; even before he was born to Mary. Ms. Fitzpatrick then uses these 4 categories to show the reader how the love of Jesus is found in the Books of Moses, in Israel’s stories, in his songs & sayings, in his prophets, in his law, and in the gospels. She writes clearly so the reader can follow and understand. Her writing is broken up into easy to understand chunks. I would recommend reading the book slowly so you can fully digest everything she is saying. Then open your Bible so you can practice what you’ve learned for yourself.
This book is geared more towards women but is helpful for everyone. It can be used by new Christians or those who have been saved for years. There’s something for every stage. The author is passionate about what she writes and wants the reader to see the joy of reading their Bible. I found the book extremely applicable and helpful for my own Bible reading. I write the 4 categories in my journal so I can have them handy when I’m reading. I would recommend this book!
I received a copy of this book from Bethany Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions stated here are my own.
