I get so overwhelmed when I try to read the Bible without a devotional or using a Bible Study. I am 30 years old and re-dedicated my life to Jesus at age 21. I have been doing Bible study's with Women's ministry at my church for 3 1/2 years. I have done three Beth Moore studies and a Nancy Leigh DeMoss study. This book has changed my life because it has helped me read the New Testament with a complete understanding of the author and the big picture. I didn't realize until I was half-way through the book that this was marketed for kids/juvenile/devotions. Please don't let that deter you from buying this book if you are an adult.
This book is a great guide for helping you read through the Bible without getting overwhelmed.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jackie Perseghetti at a Weekend to Remember Conference (which I highly recommend also). She is so lovely and wonderful.
I was given a copy of Faith Factor NT as a gift. A quick thumb-through proved quite impressive: this isn't your typical devotional book (ie - a cute fictional story with a spiritual message attached). Each devo actually focuses on a passage of the Bible, retelling it in an engaging style. If you're looking for a great survey of the New Testament of the Bible (whether you're new to the Bible or a seasoned-reader) -- this is a fabulous resource. I've used it for personal use and for teaching kids and adults.
It's too bad there's no "look inside" option. I'll see if I can flesh it out:
Faith Factor has 128 devotionals that go through each of the 27 books of the New Testament. The graphic design inside is very chic, modern, and professional done. Each devotional is 2-3 pages long, long enough to get good meat without consuming your time. At the beginning of each NT book (Matthew, Mark, Luke, etc) there is a page that talks about the history and purpose of the book, along with an outline of the main themes of that book.
Each devotional contains multiple sidebars that give:
-easy-to-understand definitions of unfamiliar words
-cultural examples (ex: Talking about tax collectors: "Tax collectors were considered traitors in the eyes of their own people. They worked for the Roman government and often charged higher taxes than required so they could secretly pocket money for themselves.Read more ›
It's a great way to steady the Bible!!!

There are two things that make this a very good devotional book: the format and the author’s style of writing. Read morePublished on April 1, 2014 by caseyrebel
