66 Love Letters: Dr. Larry Crabb

The 39 books that make up the Old Testament and the 27 that make up the New Testament of the bible are condensed and put together in this piece by Dr. Crabb entitled 66 Love Letters: A Conversation With God that Invites You Into His Story. With most of the chapters no longer than three or four pages Dr. Crabb's book is a smooth and easy read for such a long and large book.
It came as a great surprise that I enjoyed reading it. As a person who strictly reads fiction, I have to admit my first experience with a spiritual growth book was indeed enjoyable. Although, as I progressed into the book, it explains each of the 66 books in the bible as if they were love letters written directly from God, but I couldn't keep myself from visualizing this book written in a journal or some sort of diary kept by Dr.Crabb. However, as I said earlier I am a fiction reader always in search of a good story and I found one that was also encouraging. It also made the bible seem a lot more understandable.
On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is the least enjoyable and ten being the most enjoyable, I give 66 Love Letters a nice solid 7, so listen up you die hard fiction readers, just like myself, if you are brave enough to step out of your comfort zone of fiction works this book will definitely blow your mind and make it all worthwhile.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
