Favorite Quotes: (1) "...Ezekiel stood over the bones and said what God has told him to say. Immediately, the bones came together and were covered with flesh and skin. This hopeless valley filled with dry bones suddenly became a witness to the power of God's word. Remember what we saw at the beginning of our journey? God speaks, and things happen. God's words give life." (2) "Think back to the garden. What was the greatest blessing that God gave to Adam and Eve? The greatest blessing was living in God's very presence, knowing him, and worshiping him." (3) "Finally, the strange vision of the divided animal that God had given to Abraham all those years before was fulfilled. Just as he had said he would, God had suffered the penalty due to all of us who break his laws and ignore his covenant. He himself had paid the price." 

Why I Chose It: I think I grabbed this from a stack of books my Dad left out at home after a conference? It was relatively short and this type of overview book is nice to read once in a while.

Other Notes: An informative, concise read.
