    Route 66

    A Crash Course in Navigating Life with the Bible

    Welcome to Route 66, a journey to discover how the 66 books of the Bible help us to know God--and know how to live for Him. This book is packed with practical help to live your whole life guided by the whole of the Bible.

    For many of us, there is a disconnect between the Bible we treasure and the book we struggle to read. We know the Bible is a lamp to our feet, honey on our lips, and the sword of the Spirit, equipping us for every good work. But sometimes the Bible feels more like a confusing collection of ancient texts filled with obscure laws! Using the analogy of a trip, Route 66 unfolds how different passages of the Bible can help us travel through different passages of our life.

    Route 66 works with the idea that there are eight identifiable genres within the Bible: narrative, law, psalm, prophecy, wisdom, gospel, epistle, and apocalyptic. Krish Kandiah introduces each in turn, explaining how to read them and how to apply their teaching to your life. He then provides five studies for each.

    There are three ways you can use this book: on your own, with 40 daily Bible studies and a "travel journal" to record what God is teaching you; in a small group, with weekly study questions to supplement your personal reading; and with your church, using the eight sections of the book as a great sermon series.

    Free supplemental materials, including a Church Leader's Guide and PowerPoint presentation have been produced for the major UK Christian festival Spring Harvest. These materials are available on the Spring Harvest website: www.springharvest.org/resources/route-66/

    "One cannot travel a new way without a map. The map tells us
    the road to take.
    Route 66 is a wonderful map into experiencing the God of Scripture."
