66 Ways God Loves You was written by Jennifer Rothschild and published by Thomas Nelson. It is a cute and colorful small hardback book, perfect for the coffee table or bed side. It takes you through the 66 books of the Bible and shows you how to experience God’s personal love for you in each one. Each page is decorated with beautiful pastel flowers.The book starts with an introduction and then goes into the first book of the Bible, Genesis, then the second, Exodus and so on. Each book of the Bible is given a theme and a 2 page devotional on how God shows His people love through that book. The writing is simple to understand, yet written about the scripture and not from stories of personal experience. Within each devotion, there are several scripture references from that book. It is nice that it sticks to the Bible, but it is definitely not a book that is going to take you into deep profound revelation.
It is, however, encouraging. It is a feel good book to remind you that you are deeply loved by God and how history reveals that to us in His actions. Sometimes that reminder is what we really need. Love is what we long for as moms, dads, sons, daughters, as human beings. Don’t forget that you are loved…..and these are all the ways that God has shown and continues to show us that.
Just by design alone, the book is geared toward a female, but content is not specifically geared toward any one gender, but to followers as a whole. I like this book, but was not overly impressed with it. I would recommend it, but would not say it is a go out and must buy. It might make a cute stocking stuffer or addition to a little gift basket with tea or coffee.I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.
