Review:

101 Most Powerful Verses in the Bible is a devotional book containing 101 two-page devotionals by the husband and wife writing team, Steve and Lois Rabey.

“The fourth in the series, this book follows 101 Most Powerful Prayers in the Bible, 101 Most Powerful Promises in the Bible, and 101 Most Powerful Proverbs in the Bible. As an author, it’s an idea I wish I’d have thought of. In 101 Most Powerful Verses in the Bible, Steve and Lois Rabey wove devotional applications from their own life experiences with select verses from nearly every book in the Old and New Testaments. Peppered throughout are the devotional thoughts of great thinkers like Frederick Buechner, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux.

“This volume is a painless addition to daily Bible reading. The Rabeys didn’t choose to use the 101 most popular Bible verses, though all the references are familiar to those who have been regular Bible readers. Being an overachiever, I read three devotionals each day and finished the book in about a month’s time.” – PeggySue Wells, Christian Book Previews.com

Book Jacket:

Rather than a substitute for God's word, this book captures the breadth and depth of expression in the Bible, whether it is in the haunting, poetic cry of David's psalms, Job's famous "grumbling unto God," or the last words that Jesus spoke to his disciples. What does it mean to be created in "God's image"? Why did God say to Jeremiah: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you"? How are we to interpret Galatians 3:28-"You are all one in Christ Jesus"? With their unmatched ability to find simple yet powerful lessons for our daily lives, Steve and Lois Rabey show how verses from Scripture echo throughout human events and why the Bible can change the way we live through sickness and health, joy and sadness, challenges and triumphs.
