The Bible Savvy Series

The Bible Savvy Series by James Nicodem

About The Books:
The Bible Savvy Series, made up of four concise individual volumes, are a foundational resource for those wanting to better understand the Bible. From the whole storyline of the Bible to personal application and how to live it, this set of four accessible books is an ideal resource for small groups, Sunday school classes, youth groups, and individuals seeking to increase their breadth of knowledge about God's word. Epic: The Storyline of the Bible unveils the single theme that ties all the various parts of scripture together: redemption. Foundation: The Trustworthiness of the Bible explains that the Bible is God's book, not merely man made, and why it can be wholly trusted. Context: How to Understand the Bible shows readers how to read the different parts of the Bible as they were meant to be read and how they fit together. Walk: How to Apply the Bible helps readers put their greater understanding of the text into practice and how to draw real-life applications from it.

My Thoughts:
This is a great series, especially for me who is constantly reflecting and trying to better understand the Bible and my faith. I love that these books are not huge volumes, and are not how-to, in an academic sense. They are for personal reflections about the Bible, and how you can use the passages and the good word in your daily life.

About The Author:
Jim Nicodem has been the senior pastor of Christ Community Church since its start in 1984. Beginning with a group of six families, the church has grown to over five thousand people at four campuses. A significant focus on reaching spiritual seekers has resulted in scores of new believers being baptized each year. Born and raised in the Midwest, Jim did his schooling in Biblical studies. Jim and his wife, Sue, have been married for more than thirty years and have three grown children. Jim enjoys biking, hiking and kayaking for recreation. He loves to hang out in Chicago, where he can watch the Cubs play (no better park than Wrigley) or listen to the world-class Symphony Orchestra. The local Starbucks also sees a lot of Jim, accompanied by books (mostly biographies) or friends.
