"I read the Bible, but I don't get anything out of it." "I want to know what the Bible says, but I need a guide to understand it." "I just don't have time to read the whole Bible, but I want to know its message for me." If any of these statements describe you (or your parishioners), then this is the book for you. Arranged in 52 weekly sessions, God Has A Plan For You! provides an easy-to-follow structure for a one-year plan to read through the entire Bible. It offers a broad overview of the message of Scripture, as well as practical applications to daily Christian living.
Each chapter includes a clear explanation of the Biblical text and its meaning for today. And study questions and thought-provokers help readers to deepen their understanding. The unique format makes this an excellent resource for a preaching series, Sunday School lessons, or a group Bible study, as well as for personal Bible reading.
Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, this book can help you reach your spiritual goals by fostering a clear understanding of the Bible's message and God's plan for you.
God Has A Plan For You! celebrates the message of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation....This approach helps make all of the written Word - not just the more familiar favorite passages - the basis of a life lived in obedience to God and his kingdom agenda for the church. Dr. Prescott-Ezickson wisely avoids secondary issues and dubious interpretations, consistently focusing on the central message of salvation as it is found from the beginning to the end of the Scriptures. Readers, whether from the laity or the clergy, will come away from this volume with a new appreciation of the fundamental message of the Bible.

I am most appreciative of Dr. Prescott-Ezickson's choice to span the breadth of the Bible with selected passages from Genesis to Revelation. Not only will the book help laypeople, but the book serves as a model to preachers to preach the "full council of God." - Dr. Scott M. Gibson, Associate Professor of Preaching and Ministry, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
Ideally, this book would have its greatest use as an adult study. It is the type of book that should be used by a group of people covenanting together for their growth in Christ. . . It could be used by those of us who may be familiar with the story that we fail to hear it afresh. - Rev. David Strosahl, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Southington, CT
