Author: Elyse Fitzpatrick
from Genesis to Revelation
Learn the Secret to Delighting in God's Word
Sometimes reading the Bible feels like just another obligation, something else to check off your to-do list. But Scripture is so much more than a book of rules and regulations. The Bible is about Jesus and his love for you!
Elyse Fitzpatrick reveals how each section of the Bible--the Law, history, poetry, the epistles--points to God's eternal love and the good news of redemption through his Son. You'll find yourself drawn to the Bible like never before as you begin to see Jesus on every page.
Discussion questions make this a great book for individual or small-group study.

"For all of us who have been trained to read the Bible and make it immediately about us and what we're supposed to do, Elyse introduces us to a much better way--the way Jesus taught his followers to read and understand it, which puts who he is and what he's done firmly at the center of every part of the Bible's story." ~Nancy Guthrie, author of the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series
"Whether you have studied the Bible for years or just begun, Finding the Love of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation will renew your mind and refresh your soul. In her engaging style, Elyse makes deep truths understandable as she teaches us how to see Jesus in all of Scripture." ~Susan Hunt, pastor's wife, mother of three, and grandmother of twelve; former coordinator of women's ministry for the Presbyterian Church in America; author of several books, including Spiritual Mothering
"They say that 'context is king' in understanding Scripture, and certainly daughters of the King have a right to know. I love that Elyse's new book is laser-focused on helping us see the context of God's big story and how all the pieces fit together." ~Gloria Furman, cross-cultural worker, author of Missional Motherhood and Alive in Him
"I love it when a writer explains deep truths in a relatable way. Elyse has written a seminary-level overview of the whole story of Scripture, but she has made it accessible to the average man or woman who may feel seminary is out of their league. Churches need more resources like this." ~Wendy Alsup, author of Practical Theology for Women and Is the Bible Good for Women?
"With a gentle hand and clear eye, Fitzpatrick guides readers to discover a loving God within the pages of Scripture. But not just any God. Fitzpatrick reveals a purposeful, active God who offers life and hope through the gospel--a God who has loved us from the very start." ~Hannah Anderson, author of Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul
"In a clear and concise manner, Elyse demonstrates how to approach the Scriptures as Jesus did: 'Beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself' (Luke 24:27). Elyse offers a much-needed corrective to the self-oriented approach to Bible study so prevalent today." ~Lydia Brownback, author and speaker
"Elyse is someone I've always counted on to point me to Jesus in every sentence she writes and in every word she speaks. In her latest book, and best work yet, Elyse does it again. This book was written for the woman who wonders if her life is of any worth to Jesus, and the woman who worries that she isn't welcome in his presence, and the woman who wants to know what Jesus wants for her. So basically, it's for all of us! Finding the Love of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation is an irresistible invitation to learn, from a wise and skilled teacher, about the Jesus who loves you and longs to open your eyes to who he is, and who you are in him." ~Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free
"Does Jesus really love me? If that's your question, let Elyse take you by the hand and show you, opening door after door in the Scriptures with the key given by Jesus himself. See his love and then learn to find it for yourself. Yes, Jesus loves me!" ~Rondi Lauterbach, author of Hungry: Learning to Feed Your Soul with Christ
"Elyse has orchestrated a beautiful yet practical resource for those who long to understand how each biblical story, letter, prophecy, and poem fits into the whole counsel of Scripture. From Genesis to Revelation, this book will teach you how to read any and every verse through the interpretive lens of the Gospel. Grab this book, read it through immediately, then keep it on your shelf as a reference to carefully savor for years to come." ~Katie Orr, Bible teacher and creator of the FOCUSed15 Bible studies
"Elyse's no-nonsense writing style and accessible approach to Scripture give her books the flavor of a long-overdue conversation with a trusted friend. Even better, reading her book only stokes my desire to read The Book, and for that I am most grateful." ~Amanda Bible Williams, author and chief content officer at She Reads Truth
