Dr. Larry Crabb’s 66 Love Letters is the perfect book for new believers and long time Christians. Dr. Crabb takes you through the “66 Love Letters”, which are the 66 books of the Bible, as if God is specifically talking to you and explaining why He wrote each book of the Bible. Each chapter of the book is a different “love letter” and Dr. Crabb does a wonderful job breaking down the text of the specific book and relating it to our life today. He asks God questions about what He wants us to learn from each love letter and shows God’s “reply” or what he felt God was saying to him about each book.
Let’s face it- there are books in the Bible that seem like only the likes of Billy Graham would truly understand the meaning. All the lineage breakdowns in the Old Testament can be hard for anyone. This is exactly why 66 Love Letters is a wonderful book because it really breaks down each book and tells you in plain, every day language what God is really trying to teach. The book is very easy to read and very easy to understand. If anything, at times, its just a bit cheesy with the dialogue to me. I do highly recommend this book. I especially think it would be wonderful for new believers because it makes the Bible less daunting if you read this along with the books of the Bible.
