Liz Curtis Higgs is a phenomenal Bible teacher and writer and 31 Verses to Write on Your Heart definitely follows the same suit as her previous studies. If you have enjoyed her thoroughness and wit and personalization that she has put into the last several books she wrote, you will enjoy this one.
Liz has a passion for helping people to understand verses and passages from the Bible and it is evident in what she writes. Before writing 31 Verses, Liz took a survey asking for peoples’ favorite Bible verses and from there, she picked the 31 verses that were the most commonly agreed upon favorites. Each verse she delves into completely and each verse is one whole chapter.
To begin each chapter, she prints the full verse. From there, she picks apart the verse word for word and explains what each particular word/phrase means. She digs into the Greek and Hebrew and different versions of the Bible and has the reader stop to ponder on the emphasis that God placed on those words and unfolds the verse to show God’s great love for His children. A prayer always follows the chapter study. At the end of the chapter, she prints the full verse again and encourages the reader to write the verse in their favorite translation. Lastly, for each chapter, she gives tips on ways to make Bible verse memorization easier and even compiles all those methods together at the end of the book for the reader to review and study as preferred, along with a book study question and answer portion.
This book would be great to use as a daily devotional and enrichment to go along with your Bible reading or to give as a gift to someone who is desiring to dig deeper into God’s word. It is more geared towards women, but I feel that men would also be able to walk away with a better understanding of the Bible. This is a book you definitely want to pick up and completely safe for all ages!
