Start – The Bible for New Believers


Book Review by Jo Rae Johnson

Recently BookSneeze offered Start! The Bible For New Believers as a selection for review. This New King James version of the Bible is edited by Greg Laurie, well known pastor of one of the largest churches in America—Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California.

Laurie starts with his five secrets to spiritual success. They include read, study and love God’s Word; have an active prayer life, be actively involved in a local church, learn the joy of giving to and serving others, and tell others about Jesus Christ. These introductory pages lay a foundation for the new believer.

Inside the Biblical text, Laurie has inserted an introduction to each book of the Bible and added highlighted commentaries in the areas of Live, Grow, Know and Learn. The areas are also cross referenced in a topical index in the back of the Bible.

Following Revelation, Laurie offers up Essentials//What Every Christian Needs to Know About God and Jesus. Here Laurie explains truths about God and identifies Jesus as both God and man.

As an aficionado of Bibles and a fan of Greg Laurie’s teaching, I was curious to see if Start! The Bible For New Believers would help bridge the gap between the crawl of salvation to a walk of faith. In my opinion, Start! would strengthen the muscles of a new believer’s legs of faith, and remove misconceptions that could become road blocks.
