FAITH NEWS SERVICE – What if you could discover the Beloved in the world’s greatest love story? What if you could make sense of even the most difficult passages in both the Old and New Testament?
Now you can! Meet the Bible Companion Series, a bite-sized chapter-by-chapter compilation that explores ancient biblical history through relevant storytelling and compelling questions. Be prepared for the richest Bible-reading experience you’ve ever imagined.
In a bold, realistic, refreshing manner, this twelve-book Bible Companion Series offers readers an inspiring and doable path for reading through the Bible. Genesis and Exodus (book 1 of the God in Story: Who We Are set) offers insight into the Bible’s early families, showing how God’s love and grace transcends our lives. Short daily readings and thought-provoking questions provide busy readers with insight into God’s Word, themselves, and the world around them.
For twenty-five years, author and licensed minister Karen Westbrook Moderow led Bible and Breakfast, an interdenominational Bible Study designed to nurture a deeper love for God and His Word through the most relatable characters in the Bible.
Moderow says, “I am a seminary-trained minister who has been a serious student of the Bible since childhood. My pastor father taught me to love God and His Word. My passion is for others to encounter God in the Scriptures as I have.” A regular contributor to Moody Magazine for over a decade, Moderow honestly, gently, and confidently helps others to know God through Scripture.
Get to know the ancient leaders, kings, and everyday people in the Bible from a deeper perspective. You’ll find their humanity, failures and ponderings, successes and victories are very much like your own. Experience the God who created them and you as the source for all you need to live life with wisdom and compassion.
The Bible Companion is a commentary-devotional hybrid geared toward people with too-busy lives. The series transcends barriers to understanding Scripture and sparks curiosity for the most studied book on earth. Exciting story arcs, connecting the Old and New Testaments, bring the Bible to life.
Moderow believes “that reading the Bible through as a continuous story reveals God as a loving creator who is always reaching for us, who will intervene in our lives and our world so that we can know Him, love and serve Him both now and in His eternal kingdom.”
