Item description for God Has A Plan For You! by Robert Prescott-Ezickson...

Overview
"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. Robert T. Coote, Associate Director Overseas Ministries Study Center New Haven, Connecticut

Reviews - What do customers think about God Has A Plan For You!?

I loved it  Apr 29, 2007
Dr Prescott-Ezickson takes the Bible and makes it relevant for modern day people. His views of Christianity and his teachings from the Bible give a solid basis for the 21st century Christian. This book helps breakdown the daunting task of reading through the Bible into manageable sections.
 
From another pastor  Jan 31, 2007
Thanks Rob, November 6, 2006

This review was erroneously posted on another book and I have moved it here with his permission. RDPE

Several years ago my friend and colleague, Rob Prescott Ezickson , spoke to me of his project of preaching a sermon from every book in the Bible. I thought at that time it was a rather exhaustive undertaking and I have not changed my mind. But, I wondered what good that would do. As a preacher, I have sometimes wondered the efficacy of a prolonged sermon series, the spoken word seemingly taking second place, at best, to the other media for conveying a message. However, I have been privileged to read the finished product and I stand in admiration of Rob.

We preachers rarely do protracted series. In a time when the average person in the pew is woefully weak in Biblical knowledge, the proclivity of preachers to randomly use Biblical texts and the emphasis on topical preaching often find the scriptures as a foreign experience, even to the faithful. Firstly, what has been achieved in God Has a Plan for You, is the reader of this volume gets a taste of every Biblical book. Secondly, the reader gets a sense of flow; how the good news comes to be. Thirdly, there is a familiarity with the characters whose stories every believer should know, the knowledge of them bearing an important part of being an informed person. Prescott Ezickson reintroduces us to the scriptures.

But there is more than a reintroduction, sampling , and flow. Critical questions are asked within each chapter as to how the Biblical story intersects who we are and where we are in our human experience. An example is the question, "How much money would you have to have before you would consider yourself rich?" In the present time many Americans are asking that very question, but without any reference to God. We ask the question in terms of real estate we would purchase, the type of car we would by, and how early we would retire. We might even think that the Gospel is silent to us at this point. Rob, introducing us to the rich young man in Mark 10 and the poor widow in Mark 12, raises that question in light of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. A whole other dimension, one which is often excluded from our thinking, is now introduced. It is a point to ponder. It is the challenge of the Word become flesh. We cannot answer it casually. Its answer has consequences for our lives which are eternal.

This book is a good read for the growing Christian. It familiarizes our maturing brother and sister with the scripture and its relevancy for our time. Indeed, God does have a plan for each of us. The book takes that phrase, which can but used tritely, and confronts us as to what we are doing with our lives.

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 by used by new Christians in a growth group who are asking the question, "what now?" It could be used by those of us who may be familiar with the story that we fail to hear it afresh.

"God has a plant for your life." When was the last time we thought of that. Maybe it is time that we again think about it. John Robinson, the pastor of The Pilgrims preached these words when that hearty band left Plymouth, England. "Perhaps God has more light still to break forth from his Word." May this book be used to help a new generation bask in that light to which our Lord calls them.
 
A Helpful Book  Jan 9, 2007
This post comes as a review and commendation of Robert Prescott-Ezickson's book, God Has a Plan for You. The chapters which come from sermons cover the gamut of the Scriptures, fielding the questions and concerns of the serious reader.

I read the chapters with interest and delight. Prescott-Ezickson's grappling with the text and its application in the lives of his readers gives the book a broad based appeal. 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 for preachers to preach, "the full counsel of God."

The study questions following each chapter will stimulate readers to rreflect upon the passage and principles discussed and will encourage the readers to put the principles into practice. There are books of sermons, and there are books of sermons. Dr. Prescott-Ezickson's book is more than simply sermons, they are chapters from the Book of Life which will in turn feed the lives of its readers.

Review of "God Has a Plan..."  Nov 1, 2006

Dr. Rob has set out to lead his readers on a pilgrimage through the Bible. He has high-lighted various texts along the way, giving the reader insightful information for the journey.

Each chapter is peppered with great discussion questions, making this a book worthy of group study. He is thoroughly Christian in his presentation. Dr. Prescott-Ezickson offers lessons for Christian believers throughout his presentation of the Hebrew Scriptures, as well as the New Testament.
