Route 66: A Crash Course in Navigating Life with the Bible by Krish Kandiah Book Review
Prepare to take an 8 week journey in discovering the Bible with a fresh perspective in Krish Kandiah's Route 66: A Crash Course in Navigating Life with the Bible. This 8 week study contains an overview of the Bible in 8 themes. The 8 themes are: Living faithfully (the narrative literature), Living distinctively (the law), Living poetically (the Psalms), Living discerningly (the wisdom literature), Living prophetically (the prophets), Living infectiously (the gospels), Living purposefully (the epistles) and Living hopefully (the apocalyptic literature). At the end of each day's reading is a travel journal for personal study (read a few chapters from the Bible and answer questions). At the end of each week there is a group discussion guide for group study. At the end of the book there is an 8 week plan for reading the whole Bible.
I was thoroughly intrigued by the format and content of this book. I'm a "big picture" person and this book gave me a taste of how to study that big picture of the Bible in small bites. Krish has an outstanding and powerful writing voice. He related many interesting stories with humor and wit that excited me to dig deeper into the Bible. I really like his use of analogies such as "Route 66 aims to be a 'crash course' in driving through different terrains of Scripture that will launch you into discovering more of the Bible for yourself." I'm excited to digest this in an 8 week time period. Krish doesn't just whet your appetite for God's Word, he makes you salivate!
