By Erwin & Rebecca Lutzer 

OVERVIEW: In this book, Bible teacher Erwin Lutzer and his wife Rebecca have carefully selected more than 100 Bible verses that speak directly to the most important issues of life, and explained the very practical ways those verses can encourage  and strengthen you in every possible circumstance. you will find a treasure full of God's truth to guide you and transform you in your daily walk with Him.

AUTHORS: Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, Senior Pastor of The Moody Church since 1980, is an award-winning author of more than 20 books, including One Minute After You Die. He's a celebrated international conference speaker and the featured speaker on three radio programs heard worldwide. Rebecca Lutzer, an RN, has used her gifts of hospitality, mercy and teaching to minister to many women. She and Erwin coauthored Jesus, Lover of a Woman's Soul. Erwin and Rebecca have been married more than 40 years, are the parents of three married daughters, and have seven grandchildren.

MY REVIEW: The purpose of this book is to bring about real change in your life and it will if you take the time to memorize these Scripture passages and grow in your understanding of the basic doctrines and teachings of the Bible. The discipline to grow in "the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18) lies at the heart of Christian maturity. 

I found the structure of this book easy to follow. The verses are listed at the beginning of each chapter and are followed by a commentary explaining the meaning and significance of these passages. There are nearly 40 chapters that introduce you to almost 100 life changing Bible verses.I especially liked the fact that the authors used many stories and illustrations to explain and help you understand the Scriptures you are memorizing.

If you want to know what God has to say about the things that matter most to you, you will want to get this book. Some of the Scripture topics are: Adversity, anxiety, eternal life, grace, heaven, hell, love, peace, and many more. 

(I want to thank Harvest House Publishers for providing this book for review.)
