Title: Route 66
Author: Krish Kandiah
When I took a look at the title of this book, I was immediately stopped in my tracks. I thought to myself “I wonder what this book is about?” Having now read it through, I can tell you it gives us a taste of the Word of God. Of course, the author couldn’t cover each and every chapter of the whole Bible so it is more an overview that is meant to give us a glimpse of the Bible and leave us hungry for more.
This author wrote the book in a format that can be used individually, in small group settings or even for whole congregations. His website http://krishk.com/route66/ lists resources for leaders, pastors, and for individuals to use as well. There are PowerPoint slides, leader guide samples, and much more. The website http://www.springharvest.org/route66 has resources to download as Spring Harvest has been using Route 66 as the 2011 Event Resources. So don’t wait to download the material you would like before the year ends!
After each chapter, there is a “Travel Journal” in which the author asks specific questions on one chapter of the Bible. Should a small group of seekers read this book together, the section entitled “Small Group Study” is very helpful and allows the seekers to deepen their journey. I love how the author incorporates his life experiences with what we as a Body of Believers can learn about God, us, and each other. I hope and pray you download the resources even if you don’t plan on using them right away. It is nice to be prepared so when the Lord directs you to use this book, you have what you need to lead, follow, and learn on the journey. Enjoy the Route!
