Each page contains the following:
* Heading- gives a title for each story and a Scripture reference.
* Story- one page in length, approximately 250 words.
*Picture- illustrated by David Lundquist, most about the size of a credit card, realistic and accurate.
*Thinking point or prayer- red text, usually a few brief but poignant sentences in length that reinforce the main idea of that day’s story.
In addition, the book offers a unique feature: Readers can flip through it to locate stories associated with a key Biblical theme. These stories are easily identified by finding certain images, which are as follows:
* Lamb - Jesus Christ and Salvation
* Winding Road - Traveling and Journeys
* Open Scroll - God's Word* Sword - Wars and Battles
* Dove - The Holy Spirit
The author selects stories from both the Old and New Testament with care. In easy to understand and concise wording, each one helps the reader understand the history of the Christian faith and it’s most important doctrines. The book itself is divided into six segments, or chapters. It places the Old Testament stories into three groups. It likewise divides the New Testament stories into three groups.
The hardcover book also features a slender blue bookmark, just like you might find in a regular Bible.
Here is an example of a thinking point based on a story about Hezekiah trusting in God: “When we have a problem it is best to take it to God in prayer and ask him for help.”
Here is an example of prayer that follows the Beatitude passage in Matthew: “Ask the Lord God that you will know these special blessings from him and value them.”
