Review: Bible Savvy Series by: James L. Nicodem

 Bible Savvy Set of 4 books
About the Book:
Made up of four individual volumes ("Epic, Foundation, Context, "and "Walk"), "Bible Savvy "is 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.
About the Author:
 Jim and his wife, Sue, have been married for more than thirty years and have three grown children. Born and raised in the Midwest, Jim did his schooling in Biblical studies (BA/Wheaton College; MDiv, DMin/Trinity Evangelical Divinity School). In keeping with Christ Community Church's mission to make passionate disciples of Jesus Christ, Jim loves to mentor others in prayer and the study of God's Word. With that goal in mind, he has authored Prayer Coach: For All Who Want to Get Off the Bench and Onto the Praying Field (2008) and the four-book Bible Savvy series (2013).

My Review:
 The Bible Savvy collection is an excellent resource to have in your home library. My husband is in seminary and found these to be great additions in helping him with his course work. They are perfect for anyone especially some one new to the Christian walk. The 4 volume set breaks down and explains alot of the Bible for you. Here is a brief summary of what each book includes:

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.

 The author points out the fact that the Bible is not an easily understood book and breaking it down makes it a little easier to understand. He has taken the Bible and sorted through it and pointed out significant facts to helps us better make sense of it all.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me at no charge from the publisher for my honest review.
