Book Review: Chris Tiegreen– 90 Days Thru the Bible- A Book Review by Jack Gilbert

Chris Tiegreen’s book 90 Days Thru the Bible: A Devotional Journey from Walk Thru the Bible is an attempt to show the Bible as a big picture. Chris reminds readers that the Bible is not 66 separate books, but one book telling the story of the restoration of man to GOD.

The book itself does not contain the Scriptures you would be reading for each section, but should be used with a Bible of your choosing. The book can be used in one of two ways: 1) read as a book describing the big ideas of each book as they relate to GOD’s relationship to man and how each fits in GOD’s plan of salvation for man. 2) One can read the assigned scripture and then read the chapter assigned to that Scripture, and answer the questions of reflection at the end of each section.

This is a great idea and honestly, I like this book, however, I think it should be named 365 days through the Bible. Seriously though, one can make it through in 90 days but you won’t be doing much else or taking great amounts off time to reflect. The sections to be read each day vary in length. Sometimes it is manageable and sometimes the assigned reading is an entire book of the Old Testament such as Leviticus. I have other studies in the word that I am doing and even if I dropped those this would be hard to keep up with. It is a book worth reading, but don’t believe that you are going to get through it and the Bible in just 90 days without some serious effort.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Tyndale Blog Network. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising
