    I had the privilege of reading a pre-publication manuscript of this book, and I cannot say enough good things about it. Ever since I started reading it, I've raved about it to anyone who will listen! I believe this is an important and needed book for the church. So many people lack und...

    I just finished this book and can't wait to read it again. I took so many notes and often had to stop and pray. The author does an amazing job of using 9 points to show you Jesus in the OT and throughout the Bible and God's plan for us in eternity. I was encouraged, challenged and draw...

    I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This book is theologically solid and full of great quotes. Some chapters were really good, some were kind of meh. This book has discussion questions in the back, so I think I would have enjoyed it more as a grou...

    I have a particular love for Biblical Theology. So when I heard of a book that traces not one, but nine wonderful themes through the pages of Scripture, I couldn't get hold of it fast enough. I love the way that Guthrie traces from Eden to eternity so many wonderful, rich ways in which...

    What a blessing this book is! Nancy follows nine biblical themes (wilderness, tree, image, clothing, bridegroom, sabbath, offspring, dwelling place, city) from Eden to eternity. She skillfully shows that we aren?t meant long for a return to Eden- we are meant to long for a better Ede...

    This book is a lovely narrative-theological work. It is meant to encourage the reader to continue to look to Christ and our future hope- enjoying Him forever. Full review here: https://coffeemeetsass.wordpress.com/... ...

    Have you ever felt an emptiness in life? It?s OK, Nancy Guthrie can relate. In her book, Even Better Than Eden she writes: ?Sometimes your sense of emptiness haunts you as a nagging ache. At other times it overwhelms you as a restless agony. Perhaps you have come to see your emp...

    People can have a tendency to see the Bible as a disjointed collection of books and stories. Even more so, people tend to separate the Old and New Testaments going so far as to say there is almost a different God between the two or that God really changed once Jesus showed up. That's w...

    You think your life is defined by the body you see when you look in the mirror, and the job you have or don't have, or by the titles after your name. They don't define you. Who you are is most profoundly about who Christ is and who the Spirit is making you to be. Your sense of identity...

    Often, readers will ask me how to get the most out of their Bible reading or help on understanding God?s Word. In this book, Even Better Than Eden by Nancy Guthrie, we see that the Bible is so much more than we ever imagined. In Even Better Than Eden, Ms. Guthrie shows you how the Bi...

    Nancy hits the redemptive historical narrative of the bible out of the park. Absolutely excellent application of scripture. We did this as a study and also used supplemental video. Nancy's delivery is really honed in this one (I felt as if she were preaching to me). She is one of the b...

    This was better than I thought when I first started reading. The story telling and Bible summary is good and works well together. There was a large section of the book I couldn?t put down. That being said, if you don?t want to read the whole thing, you could just read the conclu...

    What a great book to read and to take encouragement in the hope of the Gospel. Perfect for personal use or as a Bible study. The book is thoroughly grounded in Scripture as Guthrie weaves the story of redemption into 9 facets, each finding its ultimate fulfillment in the Person and wor...

    Such an encouraging look at the story of scripture. Even though I am familiar with the overarching story and themes of the Bible, this book challenged me to look at them in a new light and rejoice in the story even more. ...

    This was a helpful and enjoyable read. I really enjoyed the hymn tie-ins and the end of the chapters, and I thought the chapter on the Sabbath was really well done. Some chapters were just ok, while others were really great, but overall I would recommend it. ...

    We are a story-telling family, composing on-the-spot homespun tales, filling up the long minutes of road trips with audio books, laughing together over replays from crazy conversations, and delighting in glory-moments together after the fact. As our family continually rotates in wider ...

    I actually didn't expect to enjoy this book as greatly as I did. Several chapters moved me to tears, and made poignant connections between some of my deepest longings and how God already has a plan to fulfill them. One of my favorite things about this book was her very frequent use...

    I have a particular love for Biblical Theology. So when I heard of a book that traces not one, but nine wonderful themes through the pages of Scripture, I couldn't get hold of it fast enough. I love the way that Guthrie traces from Eden to eternity so many wonderful, rich ways in which...

    What a blessing this book is! Nancy follows nine biblical themes (wilderness, tree, image, clothing, bridegroom, sabbath, offspring, dwelling place, city) from Eden to eternity. She skillfully shows that we aren?t meant long for a return to Eden- we are meant to long for a better Ede...

    This book is a lovely narrative-theological work. It is meant to encourage the reader to continue to look to Christ and our future hope- enjoying Him forever. Full review here: https://coffeemeetsass.wordpress.com/... ...

    Have you ever felt an emptiness in life? It?s OK, Nancy Guthrie can relate. In her book, Even Better Than Eden she writes: ?Sometimes your sense of emptiness haunts you as a nagging ache. At other times it overwhelms you as a restless agony. Perhaps you have come to see your emp...

    I had the privilege of reading a pre-publication manuscript of this book, and I cannot say enough good things about it. Ever since I started reading it, I've raved about it to anyone who will listen! I believe this is an important and needed book for the church. So many people lack und...

    I just finished this book and can't wait to read it again. I took so many notes and often had to stop and pray. The author does an amazing job of using 9 points to show you Jesus in the OT and throughout the Bible and God's plan for us in eternity. I was encouraged, challenged and draw...

    A wonderful book!!! I?ve been reading it and just listened to audio-read by the author Nancy Guthrie. I highly recommend! ...

    I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This book is theologically solid and full of great quotes. Some chapters were really good, some were kind of meh. This book has discussion questions in the back, so I think I would have enjoyed it more as a grou...

    Nancy Guthrie examines nine themes or nine stories of the Bible illustrating that what God has planned for us is even better than Eden. She writes, "Christ came to accomplish what was necessary to open the way for us, not just back into the garden of Eden, but into a home that will be ...

    Mrs. Guthrie does a great job pulling the strings together so that the reader may see how the Bible is one whole narrative that leads us to Christ. I do not hold the same Theological position as Mrs. Guthrie in some things (I am a post-mil), but I appreciate very much the way she has...

    There is a song with lyrics that speak of wanting to go back to Eden, back to the perfection that was God?s original creation. We are all so aware that this world isn?t what it could be, isn?t what it should be. But was Eden really all it was cracked up to be? In Even Better ...

    What is your story? Where would you begin? Maybe it?d be where you grew, where you went to school. Nancy Guthrie in ?Even Better Than Eden? wants you to start further back. She wants you to think of your story as part of the grand story ? the story that begins in Eden. Getti...

    People can have a tendency to see the Bible as a disjointed collection of books and stories. Even more so, people tend to separate the Old and New Testaments going so far as to say there is almost a different God between the two or that God really changed once Jesus showed up. That's w...

    You think your life is defined by the body you see when you look in the mirror, and the job you have or don't have, or by the titles after your name. They don't define you. Who you are is most profoundly about who Christ is and who the Spirit is making you to be. Your sense of identity...

    Nancy Guthrie does a good job in her book of presenting nine reoccurring themes in Scripture and the impact each of these has on our own walk with God. Written in an easy to understand and readable style, it?s a great way for both new believers and those who have been believers for s...

    In this book Nancy Guthrie discusses nine themes that are woven throughout scripture. For each theme she discusses how it was in the garden, how it was changed through sin, how it will be fulfilled in the new heavens and new earth, and how this should change our lives. These themes are...

    Often, readers will ask me how to get the most out of their Bible reading or help on understanding God?s Word. In this book, Even Better Than Eden by Nancy Guthrie, we see that the Bible is so much more than we ever imagined. In Even Better Than Eden, Ms. Guthrie shows you how the Bi...

    On the whole a good and helpful book. There were some points/ comments that I wasn't sure I agreed with, or I couldn't see how she came to certain conclusions from scripture (eg in the Clothing chapter whether or not Adam and Eve would have experienced further clothing had they obeyed ...

    **I received this book from Crossway through Netgalley. All opinions are my own.** In Even Better than Eden, Nancy Guthrie shares nine ways that the new heaven and new earth will be better than the garden of Eden. If this world has captured your attention and heaven doesn?t feel v...

    Nancy hits the redemptive historical narrative of the bible out of the park. Absolutely excellent application of scripture. We did this as a study and also used supplemental video. Nancy's delivery is really honed in this one (I felt as if she were preaching to me). She is one of the b...

    This was better than I thought when I first started reading. The story telling and Bible summary is good and works well together. There was a large section of the book I couldn?t put down. That being said, if you don?t want to read the whole thing, you could just read the conclu...

    You think your life is defined by the body you see when you look in the mirror, and the job you have or don't have, or by the titles after your name. They don't define you. Who you are is most profoundly about who Christ is and who the Spirit is making you to be. Your sense of identity...

    Nancy Guthrie does a good job in her book of presenting nine reoccurring themes in Scripture and the impact each of these has on our own walk with God. Written in an easy to understand and readable style, it?s a great way for both new believers and those who have been believers for s...

    In this book Nancy Guthrie discusses nine themes that are woven throughout scripture. For each theme she discusses how it was in the garden, how it was changed through sin, how it will be fulfilled in the new heavens and new earth, and how this should change our lives. These themes are...

    Often, readers will ask me how to get the most out of their Bible reading or help on understanding God?s Word. In this book, Even Better Than Eden by Nancy Guthrie, we see that the Bible is so much more than we ever imagined. In Even Better Than Eden, Ms. Guthrie shows you how the Bi...

    On the whole a good and helpful book. There were some points/ comments that I wasn't sure I agreed with, or I couldn't see how she came to certain conclusions from scripture (eg in the Clothing chapter whether or not Adam and Eve would have experienced further clothing had they obeyed ...

    Nancy hits the redemptive historical narrative of the bible out of the park. Absolutely excellent application of scripture. We did this as a study and also used supplemental video. Nancy's delivery is really honed in this one (I felt as if she were preaching to me). She is one of the b...

    This was better than I thought when I first started reading. The story telling and Bible summary is good and works well together. There was a large section of the book I couldn?t put down. That being said, if you don?t want to read the whole thing, you could just read the conclu...

    What a great book to read and to take encouragement in the hope of the Gospel. Perfect for personal use or as a Bible study. The book is thoroughly grounded in Scripture as Guthrie weaves the story of redemption into 9 facets, each finding its ultimate fulfillment in the Person and wor...

    Such an encouraging look at the story of scripture. Even though I am familiar with the overarching story and themes of the Bible, this book challenged me to look at them in a new light and rejoice in the story even more. ...

    This was a helpful and enjoyable read. I really enjoyed the hymn tie-ins and the end of the chapters, and I thought the chapter on the Sabbath was really well done. Some chapters were just ok, while others were really great, but overall I would recommend it. ...

    Heather, Central patron, June 2019, 4 stars: Wonderful and insightful book following God's design for creation. ...

    Easy to read and very applicable. This is a great overview of some major themes from Genesis to Revelation demonstrating the coherency of all of scripture. Would recommend. ...

    I actually didn't expect to enjoy this book as greatly as I did. Several chapters moved me to tears, and made poignant connections between some of my deepest longings and how God already has a plan to fulfill them. One of my favorite things about this book was her very frequent use...

    I have a particular love for Biblical Theology. So when I heard of a book that traces not one, but nine wonderful themes through the pages of Scripture, I couldn't get hold of it fast enough. I love the way that Guthrie traces from Eden to eternity so many wonderful, rich ways in which...

    What a blessing this book is! Nancy follows nine biblical themes (wilderness, tree, image, clothing, bridegroom, sabbath, offspring, dwelling place, city) from Eden to eternity. She skillfully shows that we aren?t meant long for a return to Eden- we are meant to long for a better Ede...

    This book is a lovely narrative-theological work. It is meant to encourage the reader to continue to look to Christ and our future hope- enjoying Him forever. Full review here: https://coffeemeetsass.wordpress.com/... ...

    Have you ever felt an emptiness in life? It?s OK, Nancy Guthrie can relate. In her book, Even Better Than Eden she writes: ?Sometimes your sense of emptiness haunts you as a nagging ache. At other times it overwhelms you as a restless agony. Perhaps you have come to see your emp...

    I had the privilege of reading a pre-publication manuscript of this book, and I cannot say enough good things about it. Ever since I started reading it, I've raved about it to anyone who will listen! I believe this is an important and needed book for the church. So many people lack und...

    I just finished this book and can't wait to read it again. I took so many notes and often had to stop and pray. The author does an amazing job of using 9 points to show you Jesus in the OT and throughout the Bible and God's plan for us in eternity. I was encouraged, challenged and draw...

    Mrs. Guthrie does a great job pulling the strings together so that the reader may see how the Bible is one whole narrative that leads us to Christ. I do not hold the same Theological position as Mrs. Guthrie in some things (I am a post-mil), but I appreciate very much the way she has...

    There is a song with lyrics that speak of wanting to go back to Eden, back to the perfection that was God?s original creation. We are all so aware that this world isn?t what it could be, isn?t what it should be. But was Eden really all it was cracked up to be? In Even Better ...
