    I’m a fan of Elyse Fitzpatrick’s writing because without fail, she highlights Jesus Christ, front and center. Here, she beautifully points to the gospel over and over throughout her discussion of scripture. She makes me want to read the Bible. She reminds the reader that there isn’t anything more important than seeing the story of redemption woven from Genesis to Revelation. I was encouraged to approach my Bible reading with the overarching...

    A few months ago I noticed a new book of hers on Amazon, and I was excited that it might be one of my options in the Bethany House review program. Sure enough, it was. Finding the Love of Jesus From Genesis to Revelation is well worth adding to your TBR. It will help you rediscover the Scripture with a whole new appreciation.Elyse starts with a Biblical framework, exploring some faulty reasons Christians have for reading their Bibles, (morality s...

    "Reading this book made me want to read my Bible," said a recommendation touting "Finding the Love of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation." That was enough for me to request it to review (thanks, Bethany House!). I'm currently on a two-year plan to read through the Bible. I've done several one-year plans, and I always bog down in the Old Testament (although, true to my nature, I always soldier through). All my life I've read the Bible, mostly out of...

    Fitzpatrick looks at the story of Jesus and the two disciples on the way to Emmaus and concludes, “All of Moses' writings, the Psalms, and the Prophets were actually about him, his suffering, his glorification.” (Loc 1654/2159) She is quite clear that the Old Testament does not merely contain references to or truths about Jesus. She writes that Jesus was saying that “everything he read,” that is, the Old Testament, was about himself. (Loc...

    First sentence: Jesus loves women. He has loved us since the beginning, even from before the words "in the beginning..." were written.I have conflicting thoughts on Elyse Fitzpatrick's newest book, Finding the Love of Jesus From Genesis to Revelation. I do.On one hand, it's a book about reading the Bible. It's a book on a mission to get people excited about reading the Bible. It's a book that seeks to clarify what the Bible is all about: JESUS. I...

    There is quite a bit in this book about seeing Jesus in the Old Testament, and it is so good! It is a wonderful textbook and teaching tool presenting the reality that we can see the truth of the Gospel and the revelation of Jesus Christ on every page of Scripture.It is a great reminder, and learning experience, to read through this book. Thank you, Elyse, for your wisdom and writing and passion for this book! The place where I think I picked thi...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. There are things I like about it. There are things I dislike about it. In the “My Thoughts” section, I will address these.Summary:From the synopsis on the back cover of the book, Finding The Love Of Jesus has been written to encourage Bible reading: a passionate and positive attitude about Bible reading.The book has been written to an audience of women. Often in the Introduction, references are made to h...

    IFinding the Love of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation by [Fitzpatrick, Elyse]I was given this book by Bethany Books in exchange for my honest review.I enjoy reading the Bible and this book helped to increase that joy by looking for God's Love throughout it. The author, Elyse Fitzpatrick was able to reveal God's plan through his love in the Scripture. There are chapters with questions at the end of each to help the reader open their eyes, and hear...

    I am a big fan of Elyse Fitzpatrick’s books. However, this one was a little odd. It felt like it was two different books that put together served to muddy the waters. I’ll address the two “books” separately.The dedication reads, “To every woman who has ever wondered whether the Son could love her or would want to be near her…because, after all, she isn’t a man.” I thought, “What a weird dedication.” Then twice in the acknowled...

    I really like that the author emphasizes that it's all about Jesus - in fact, the beginning chapter is named just that. This book is written for women and emphasizes how much He loves us, however, I have never doubted Jesus' love for me or other women - or men for that matter. I have never felt "less than" as a woman in the church or as part of the family of God. I do think there are probably women who do, but from this aspect of the book, I coul...

    https://audrasbookblabbing.wordpress....Cleanliness: Very Clean (Topics to consider: religion and sexism.)One thing I almost always skip over in a book is the dedication page, but this one caught my eye. "To every woman who has ever wondered whether the Son could love her or would want to be near her... because, after all, she isn't a man." Umm.. what? This dedication didn't seem to belong in a book about reading your bible. I was pretty confuse...

    Finding the Love of Jesus is quite possibly my new favorite book. Within the first chapter I found I couldn't put it down! This is a book about reading the Word the way it is meant to be read: less about me and all about God. If on the Emmaus Road after His resurrection, Jesus took time to explain how the Scriptures- beginning with Moses and the Prophets- were about Him (Luke 24:13-35), then how should this influence the way we read the Bible?I a...

    In the first third of this book, the author talked about who was on the road to Emmaus with Jesus and what she was going to talk about in the rest of the book. I got impatient waiting for the actual study to begin, then I was disappointed with how brief the study was. Anyway, the author feels that the Jews of Jesus' time did not know how to properly interpret the Old Testament and that, after his resurrection, Jesus had to teach his disciples to ...

    Ever wonder what the point of reading the Bible is? It's just a history book. What does it mean for me today? I can't understand it. Do any of these thoughts go through your head when someone mentions the Bible? This book is here to help you; to answer your questions and help you see how the Bible connects within itself and also connects and is very relevant to us today. The author begins by explaining why the Bible is important and what it is ul...

    Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament (Law) and the New Testament (Gospel), will change how you read the bible. Do you have trouble reading the bible? Understanding how it relevant to your life now?

To live morally.To understand how I fit in.How is the bible relevant to me.What is God's will for my life.What I failed to do and t...

    Sometimes reading the Bible feels like just another obligation, something else to check off your to-do list. But Scripture is so much more than a book of rules and regulations. In her book, Elyse Fitzpatrick reveals how each section and books of the Bible points to Jesus and God's eternal love for us. You will find yourself drawn to the Bible like never before as you begin to see Jesus on every page.I have to say, though, that this book was not o...

    When I finished this book, my impression was that it would be a good book for someone who is new to Bible study or is a new believer. Also noted is that this book is heavily geared towards women. That being said, Elyse seems to take some liberties that are stated like facts in her first chapter as she talks about the Emmas road when Jesus walks with 2 of His disciples after His resurrection. Elyse states that these 2 disciples are Jesus' Aunt Mar...

    "How long has it been since you felt a passion on excitement about spending time in the Word?" (21)Finding the Love of Jesus, from Genesis to Revelation has a title that interests, excite and even encourage. This new devotional-esque Bible Study by Elyse Fitzpatrick has all the hallmark of a great personal and group study. I think it is a great idea with a premise that says more than it delivered. Not that it isn't good. I'm particularly fond of ...

    I was really disappointed in this book. I randomly picked it up at lifeway because it seemed interesting from the description. It started off ok, but as I got through it, it seemed more of a commentary than anything. The author summarized a lot of things into short, sectioned paragraphs, and it seems like she kind of was writing summaries just because. I didn’t particularly enjoy it and some of the things she mentioned I felt were not necessari...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewThe title of Chapter 2 is really a summary of what this book is about - Seeing What's Right Before You. Everything we need to know about God, His Son and His promises is right before us – revealed in Holy Scripture. We just need to know where to look and take the time to explore His Word in a new way.If you enjoy reading Bible studies, take a break from the norm a...

    As one who has struggled understanding the Love of God for me personally, this book really hit home for me! I loved the way Elyse draws our attention to God and His plan of redemption because of His great love for us- especially women!- throughout the sections of Scripture. Each chapter helped me understand how to see Him and His love, and the questions after each one we’re so helpful to begin the process of doing it on my own! I highly recomme...

    In Finding the Love of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation, Elyse Fitzpatrick showed me that I could find glimpses of Jesus throughout the entire Old Testament narrative. I appreciated Fiztpatrick's reminder that we're not reading the Bible for what we get out of it. The Bible is all about Jesus. We have to let Him be the focus. Fitzpatrick shows you how to see Jesus throughout the different writing styles in the Bible - the Books of Moses, in Is...

    An eye-opening read from relating to Jewish “believers” missing the Messiah right before them to ensuring that we read the whole of scripture the way it was intended, the author weaves a beautiful journey for anyone wanting to know Jesus and the Gospel as one complete narrative. At times it read like a textbook, but I do not say that in a negative connotation. It had the depth of a textbook, historical perspective, and options for further stu...
