Heidi Reads... 100 Favorite Verses From the Old Testament by Shauna Humphrey

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


Studying—and truly understanding—the Old Testament can feel like an insurmountable task. But in this wonderful compilation of 100 of the most beloved Old Testament verses, author Shauna Humphreys reminds readers that this sacred book of scripture is brimming with treasures of wisdom for those prepared to seek them. Presented with complementary spiritual insights, vibrant explanations, and personal applications, each verse will motivate readers to delve into these sacred and powerful teachings as never before. Whether used in personal study or incorporated into family discussions or Church lessons, this inspiring volume is sure to enlighten the mind and stir the heart.

My Review

This is a wonderful book full of devotionals based on passages from the Old Testament. I liked that there is a table of contents listing the topic for each of the 100 verses, making it easy to select a particular passage. The author's credentials are impressive, including seminary teacher and Institute teacher. The style of writing and the messages brought forth are similar to the instruction I received in my seminary and Institute classes- putting the history in context, focusing on a principle, and applying it to our day and personal lives. Often other scriptures and words of our modern day prophets and apostles are included to expound on the topic. While a bit dry, the doctrine is on point and the insights are thought provoking. This would make a great gift with its stitched leather look, silver gilding on the pages, and ribbon bookmark.
