Jesus the One and Only by Beth Moore ~ A Review

Publisher's Summary:  
In Jesus, the One and Only, Bible teacher Beth Moore invites you to know Christ personally. Watch and listen as He breaks up a funeral by raising the dead, confronts conniving religious leaders of His day, teaches on a Galilean hillside, or walks on the waves and calms the storm. Like a ragtag band of followers two thousand years ago, you will never be the same again after such an up close and personal encounter.

About the Author:
Beth Moore is a best-selling writer, teacher and founder of Living Proof Ministries. Her numerous books and Bible studies, including “A Heart Like His” (B&H Books), “Breaking Free” (B&H Books), “Believing God” (LifeWay Christian Resources), “The Patriarchs” (LifeWay Christian Resources) and “James: Mercy Triumphs” (LifeWay Christian Resources) have been read by women in Beth Moore Bible study groups all over the world. Her Living Proof Live conferences have reached women in all 50 states in the United States.

My Thoughts:
Having just wrapped up an intense bible study course by Beth Moore with the ladies at church, I jumped at the chance to read this book.  It didn't disappoint.  Beth Moore takes us chapter by chapter through the book of Luke taking an in-depth look at the life of Jesus and inviting us to get to know Him on a personal level.  I loved the style in which it was written, very easily read and like having a discussion on the various scripture passages with the author.  She defines key Greek words so that the reader might have a better understanding of what the scripture is intending and she invites the reader to open their hearts to really get to know Jesus according to what the Word in Luke had to say.  The format was perfect for doing daily devotionals, each chapter easily read, and quickly done even with the portion of scripture given for each particular chapter.  Because I was just done the Breaking Free study, I made good use of this book and read the portions of scripture and looked up every scripture that was referenced in the chapter.  It made for a very meaningful and thoughtful devotional time and was perfect for keeping me going in the Word daily that the church study had started me in.  It will definitely be a re-read for me at my Easter reading time where I like to read a book that focuses solely on Jesus.  

Thanks to Shelton Interactive for providing a copy free of charge for my honest review.  All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and I was not required to give a positive review.
