The Good Portion is a series written specifically for women to immerse themselves in the depths of Christian doctrine. God created us to enjoy knowing Him - there is always so much more to be discovered and enjoyed!

The Bible speaks about itself in evocative language - a light to the path, a balm to the flesh, sweeter than honey. It is more than a formula - it is the heartbeat of a Christian. This first title in The Good Portion series addresses the nature of the Scriptures as God's revelation and discusses the characteristics of the Bible.
