The intention of this book is to teach Christians how to use the Bible to live well. It has eight sections - living faithfully, distinctively, emotionally, imaginatively, discerningly, purposefully, infectiously and hopefully. Each provides an introduction to a different kind of literature within the Bible and follows with questions for discussion and five days of daily readings.

Krish Kandiah

Dr Krish Kandiah is the founding director of Home For Good, a young charity seeking to make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children by finding loving homes for children in the care system. He is an advocate for fostering and adoption. Dr Kandiah has been published in the Times of London and The Guardian, and is a regular broadcaster on BBC Radio 4 and Radio 2. He has written 13 books. His Monarch books include: Only the Brave, Back to the Source, Route 66, and Life Swap. Dr Kandiah holds degrees in Chemistry, Missiology and Theology. He lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and 7 children.

Route 66 is a brilliant tool for getting people to engage with the whole grand arc of Scripture, but to do so by anchoring its message in real living, whether imaginatively, prophetically, infectiously etc. It's no mean feat to gather up the insights of scholars like Goldsworthy, Brueggemann, Fee and Vanhoozer and make them accessible to a new generation of Bible readers. And all the while, he insists we apply its truths to everyday missional living. A powerful tool.A" - Michael Frost, Morling College, Sydney, author of The Shaping of Things to Come For too many, the Bible is an irrelevant relic, a dusty, shelf-bound museum-piece only to be read (if at all) because of its alleged impact on western culture. How tragic! If only people would actually read it, they would see how far from fair most popular perceptions of it are. Krish Kandiah has offered a wonderfully fresh and trustworthy introduction to the rich, diverse treasure house that is the Bible. He doesn't take a predictable chronological route through the Bible - his intention is to offer tasters, teasers if you like, of the different genres and writers that make up this ancient anthology. As a result, even well-seasoned scripture readers will find surprises and refreshment. Route 66 never pretends to be comprehensive nor an end in itself. But it succeeds in doing precisely what Krish set out to do: to excite and stimulate the reader to delve wider and deeper within the Bible, and for that reason I warmly commend it.A" - Mark Meynall, Senior Associate Minister, All Souls, Langham Place, London
