“For God so loved the world . . . “
Many of us could finish that sentence in our sleep. John 3:16 is a beautiful Scripture that neatly and simply sums up the message of the Gospel. But what do all the other 3:16s in the Bible have to tell us?
The words of the Bible weave a tapestry of love, particularly the love that our Heavenly Father has for His children. But a love so deep and so wide cannot be contained in one memorized phrase. It takes multiple authors of sixty-six individual books to begin to explore the mystery of God’s care for us.
The Other Three Sixteens by Malinda Fugate examines each third chapter and sixteenth verse in the Bible and invites a fresh, new perspective to help readers uncover surprises or remind them of forgotten truths of a faith that has become routine.
Through Genesis to Revelation, we can soak in its depth, wonder at its intricacies, and be moved at how much the Lord truly does lavish upon us. Together, we discover God’s love under the weight of Eve’s sin in the garden. It’s there in front of Moses, burning in a bush that is somehow not consumed. God’s love sits in the dark with Job, rebuilds a wall with Nehemiah, and encourages a young pastor named Timothy. Together we will find a deeper understanding of the way our Heavenly Father cares for each of us today.

My Thoughts . . .
Once I realized (in the introduction) exactly what this book was going to be about I felt a curious expectation rising inside of me. I felt like I was about to discover something really special and couldn't wait to find out what the author had to say about every 3:16 in the Bible. This is one of the few books of its kind that I would call a "page-turner" and I looked forward to the next 3:16 every time. With her knowledge of the scriptures, the author brings God's love into focus from Genesis to Revelation starting with each book's 3:16 and then moving on with a wonderful overview of what is happening in the surrounding chapters and verses. I highly recommend it!
