I could have ended this blog already by saying 'the title says it all'. But, for the sake of all who are reading and for the book review program bloggers at http://www.bloggingforbooks.org from the Crown Publishing Group, by whom I received this book for free, I continue. Businessman, Leader and Author Steven K. Scott has done the body of Christ, believers in Jesus a tremendous service by writing this book. It's a great resource and I will proceed to tell you why I believe that way.
Imagine you could hear from the greatest teacher who ever lived. Suppose you were able to record his words for generations to come. How valuable would that information be to you and to others? Wouldn't you want to share it? What would happen if you could have it arranged topically? Then, whenever you had a question about a topic, you could just go right to it and find all that the teacher said about it. That is what Steven Scott has done with "The Greatest Words Ever Spoken". And it is a storehouse of wisdom for anyone who reads it/
The book focuses on the words spoken by the greatest teacher who ever lived, namely Jesus and puts those words topically into one concise volume. There are over 200 topics and the words found in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are all included. Sometimes passages do repeat from topic to topic, as more than one category often fits an individual verse, but that is to assure that you don't miss any important subject. The author does give some introductions for each major section of topics, but it really is simply a compilation of the words of Jesus, more than the author's own words.
I would give the book a five out of five star rating, and everyone who saw me reading it and picked it up to browse had the same reaction "wow, this is incredible". However, when you do purchase the book, you might want to get the hardbound edition, because mine got mangled fairly quickly, since the paperback edition is rather flimsy. I also would advise you to read it topically and not cover to cover. This will give you the most benefit out of it and I believe will make you say at many points along the way, 'these are the greatest words ever spoken.'
