Book Review: The One Minute Bible for Students
Book: The One Minute Bible for Students by Doug Fields
Reviewer: Kara McCool
As a young person, the task of reading your Bible through can be so daunting that it is rarely attempted and even less successfully completed. The One Minute Bible is not an effort to replace the Bible or even to make reading it easy and convenient. This project actually serves as motivation for students to read the Word of God and provides hope for those who despair of reading it all the way through.
The One Minute Bible gives students a daily passage of Scripture that can be read within a minute, explains the passage in today’s jargon, provides related Scripture texts along with the passage, and refers to other scriptural narratives students might like to read along with it.
Author Doug Fields, says of the book “The great thing about the One Minute Bible for Students is that you will never again get stuck in Leviticus for forty years. The One Minute Bible for Students moves you through the entire Bible—from Creation to the return of Jesus—in just ONE YEAR! The One Minute Bible for Students won’t replace your Bible. It will inspire you to take side trips into your Bible to see what came before and what comes after the passage you just read.” This book gives students an easily digested, daily portion of the Bible while whetting their appetite for more of the Word of God.
