101 MOST POWERFUL VERSUS IN THE BIBLE-
                     STEVE AND LOIS RABEY

The authors of this book, Steve and Lois Rabey, state that "for some of us trying to read the Bible is like trying to make sense out of the user's manual that comes with a new DVD player".  As a result, many people get frustrated as they try to read and understand the Bible.

As a result, the authors have done much research and have come up with what they believe are the 101 most powerful versus in the Bible that "communicate God's will in clear and compelling ways."

What is really interesting is the authors have taken these words of wisdom and make an analogy of comparing them to today's world.  In this respect, these versus are much easier for the reader to understand. 

As an example, the first chapter is titled "A Light in the Dark". The authors stated that "our lives are like pilgrimages on rough trails winding through dark and dangerous lands.  But God's Word is like a candle that clarifies our path and shows us the way to go".  Each reading ends with a brief prayer. 

This book will help the reader understand the Old and New Testaments.  It is written with simple but compelling explanations.  When you read something that has been written in terms that make an analogy to today, the information will stay with you for a long time.  If you don't understand what you are reading, the lesson will disappear as soon as you close the book.  This is a book everyone should read because it will shed a new light on the lessons in the Bible.  It is also another great book for bible discussion groups.
