Publisher's Description

"Larry Richards has the gift of mining the Scriptures, finding the richest treasures, and minting them for us to use. Beginning Bible students as well as veterans cannot help but be enriched as they use this book. You can trust what Larry Richards writes about the Word, and you can put it into practical use."
--Warren W. Wiersbe, Author/Conference speaker

"Larry Richards has again demonstrated his ability to make profound truth understandable so it can lead to formation in the lives of its readers.

Without watering down the message of the Scripture, he has provided a tool that enables one to experience the truth of the Word of God, being alive and active in a penetrating way. In the summaries, outlines, and key emphases he has provided 'map and compass' which help the reader grasp content quickly and broadly."
--Julie Gorman, Assistant Professor and Chair of Christian Formation and Discipleship, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Once again I'm grateful to Larry Richards for another very valuable tool which will help people not only get a better grasp on the Bible, but will also challenge and help them live according to its precepts.

If you were to read through the Bible in a year with The Bible Reader's Companion at your side, you'd have a whole new and exciting grasp of the Word of God--and you'd have truth to live by each day. I cannot wait to begin . . . reading through the Bible with this book."
--Kay Arthur, Vice President, Precept Ministries

    Even though Richards has a devotional (which I have been through twice), I am using the Bible Reader's Companion this year for my quiet time and it is wonderful - rich with history, key verse, personal application and key concepts, this Companion is just that. It would be easy to understand for a lay person or new believer, and valuable to pastors and teachers as well. Just what one would expect from Lawrence O Richards! Absolutely superb!

    I buy lots of books but have never written a review before. This book is so exceptional that I had to write a review for it. God has been prompting me to read the bible again (only my second time through). I have been so excited every morning to read my chapters in The Message and then read the summary in the Bible Reader's Companion. This book has really opened my eyes to understand God's word. I feel so very blessed and closer to God with the use of this book. It is teaching me God's word in an easy to read yet comprehensive way!

    It's like having a minister walk me through each chapter of the Bible and show me things I've never seen before. Great book.

    I just received this book from a friend and I love it. It is very detailed in helping me with the information that I need and helps me to better understand verses in Revelation. I don't feel you can go wrong in purchasing this book if you are looking for a good companion to study the Bible.
