New book – The Word of God

word-of-god-cover.JPGThis new title from Trevor Lloyd provides a basic introduction to Scripture. In each of seven chapters he shows the reader not only why the word of God is important, but also how to get the most out of it. Also included are two chapters that give a brief overview of the structure and books of the Bible. Although each section is concise and to the point, this book gives a good snapshot of the breadth of the Bible and its importance to every Christian.

I enjoyed reading Trevor’s book and found his explanations and examples clear with excellent use of bible quotations and references. He communicates important ideas in a very straightforward way which would make it particularly well suited for a new Christian or for use in basic teaching or discipleship. Questions are included at the end of each chapter to stimulate both thinking and personal application so these lessons are also ready-made for one-to-one discussion or use in a small group setting.

I guess I should concede that I am likely to have some bias about this material since Trevor is both a friend and colleague in ministry. However, knowing his gifting as a pastor-teacher, I’d recommend you get hold of a copy of his book and make up your own mind.

Here is the Amazon.co.uk link for ‘The Word of God‘ by Trevor Lloyd (Seedtime Publications)
