Publisher's Summary

The story of God written in intimate love letters just for you.
Dr. Larry Crabb knows that if we could see the larger story of God and humanity, our world would never be the same. That story is found in large part in the sixty-six letters of the Bible.
Written in a conversational first person, as if God is speaking directly to us, Dr. Crabb looks at each individual book in scripture and boils it down to a one- or two-sentence message to us from that particular book. He then unpacks each sentence in a short chapter answering the question, What does God want me to hear from this love letter? The book's epilogue then fits all 66 pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together into one coherent paragraph and reveals the beautiful picture of what God has been about since the creation of the world. Far from being comprehensive, this is a personal approach to helping readers know God and his great love for them, his message for all mankind, and how their lives fit into His larger story.

I am a fan

Would you listen to 66 Love Letters again? Why?

I will listen to the book many times. It is that good. This is the most unique experience I have ever had with a book. The intimacy that one develops with the author and our God is very personal. Listening and thinking about this book and the bible has exposed me and revealed to me my pride, unbelief and self-centeredness while at the same time pointing toward God and his grace, mercy and love. I am loving learning about God's story and how my story fits in God's story. This book is amazing in helping the listener and/or reader understand God's love and embrace His movements toward us so what we can fully enter His story with ours.


What was one of the most memorable moments of 66 Love Letters?

Learning through the life of Solomon that Success is not Greatness.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Larry and Jim do a wonderful job reading this book, however, I wish Jim's voice was more different from Larry's. I keep wishing the voice of God was deeper and more distinct from Larry's content.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it is not designed to be experienced that way.

A must listen: God's Love letter you.

I've listened to this, twice in its entirety; and the last chapter (a preview to Revelation, Revelation, and a "66 paragraph", Summation of the entire Bible), even more times, and this summarizes my thoughts:

You can hear the prayers that went into this book; the inward-looking, produced by the Holy Spirit, and the courage for Dr. Crabb to be authentic in his estimation of where he struggles in his faith, and so much more.

If i had one reference to recommend to someone as to what the Bible is, and isn't, I'd recommended this audiobook. You can hear the incredible love that went into it, as well as, the challenge for you and I, to look at the Bible, as God's love letter, to us. Enjoy!
