Synopses & Reviews
"Larry Richards has the gift of mining the Scriptures, finding the richest treasures, and minting them for us to use. Beginning Bible students as well as veterans cannot help but be enriched as they use this book. You can trust what Larry Richards writes about the Word, and you can put it into practical use."
--Warren W. Wiersbe, Author/Conference speaker
"Larry Richards has again demonstrated his ability to make profound truth understandable so it can lead to formation in the lives of its readers.
Without watering down the message of the Scripture, he has provided a tool that enables one to experience the truth of the Word of God, being alive and active in a penetrating way. In the summaries, outlines, and key emphases he has provided 'map and compass' which help the reader grasp content quickly and broadly."
--Julie Gorman, Assistant Professor and Chair of Christian Formation and Discipleship, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Once again I'm grateful to Larry Richards for another very valuable tool which will help people not only get a better grasp on the Bible, but will also challenge and help them live according to its precepts.
If you were to read through the Bible in a year with The Bible Reader's Companion at your side, you'd have a whole new and exciting grasp of the Word of God--and you'd have truth to live by each day. I cannot wait to begin . . . reading through the Bible with this book."
--Kay Arthur, Vice President, Precept Ministries
