A concise series for Bible study and application


Bible SavvyThe Bible Savvy Series consists of four short books designed to help you read, study, understand and apply the Bible.  The Series, written by James L. Nicodem, begins with “Epic” which is an overview of the Bible and its 66 books and summarizes the Bible giving you a taste of what you will find from Genesis to Revelation and how they all tie in together.

“Foundation” covers the reliability the Bible and discusses why the Bible is trustworthy and answers all your questions about why certain books were included while others were not.  “Context” shows you how to understand the Bible based on the context of the Scripture—the setting, the culture, the people—everything that we need to take into account in order to accurately interpret what we are reading.  And, finally, “Walk” shows us how to apply the Scripture to our lives once we’ve read, believed and understood the Bible.

Each book in the Bible Savvy Series is practical for those who have struggled with reading the Bible or who are new to the faith.  It’s a great resource for those who want to make Bible reading a habit; however, it is not for those who have been reading the Bible for a while and don’t need a simple, practical explanation.

I was put-off by the constant jokes and the author trying to be funny.  It took away from the topic and, although not inappropriate, was unnecessary.
