Book Review

Adventuring Through the Life of Christ by Ray C. Stedman

This is a nice brief summary of the Gospels and Acts of the Apostles.

Each chapter starts with a personal story or anecdote. Then an outline is given of the book. Finally, the author gives an overview of some of the significant events in the book and makes a few personal comments as well.

At the end of each chapter are several pages for notes. Personally, I think the note pages were just filler to make the book appear larger than it actually is. Without the note pages the book is less than 100 pages.

Overall this is a nice overview of the first five books of the New Testament. The author's brief stories and commentary fits in with the summary nicely.
