Jesus, the One and Only by Beth Moore
Jesus the One and Only by Beth Moore is now in a book format, and I was delighted to receive a copy for review. As a Bible study leader, it’s refreshing to read a Beth Moore book without daily homework…and this is one of those books. You simply pick up the book and read chapter by chapter, digesting a wealth of knowledge based on scripture. Another noticeable difference in this book version is how Beth uses a “storytelling” format to enhance our understanding. She takes a key passage of history and then writes it into a colorful and visual image for her reader to remember. On page 50 Beth writes “i want you, the reader, to feel like an eyewitness to the life of Christ. I want you to feel the arid, Middle-Eastern breezes as Jesus teaches and ministers and to imagine the expressions on His face.” She accomplishes this objective quite well.
I still remember leading the workbook version of Jesus the One and Only, we did this as a group during the Christmas season when most small groups take a break for the holiday. What I enjoyed most was being in daily awareness of the life Jesus lived, and the life He gave to us. Reading this book will give you a similar perspective, no matter the time of year. If you want a deeper study with a group, use the workbook version, If you want a storytelling version, then read this version. Both are excellent…choose one that fits your individual reading style.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
