It has been my goal for the past few months to seek out more books that would help me grow in my faith, so when I saw this particular book, I jumped at it thinking: “this is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for!” And boy was I right!

My fiance and I had been trying to do a Bible study together over Facetime while he was stationed in North Carolina, but it was hard to find one that was a quick read but also went into deeper discussions to help us grow. So when we found Core 52, we decided to give it

Core 52: A Fifteen-Minute Daily Guide to Build Your Bible IQ in a Year by [Moore, Mark E.]I love finding books that can help me to find a new or different way to look at the Bible. Core 52: A fifteen-Minute Daily Guide to Build Your Bible IQ in a Year is that book.The format of the Bible Study keeps me going. There is an essay centered around a key verse. Then there is also scripture to memorize or read, a challenge for the overachiever and suggestions for books which fit the week's theme. This ...more

This book is not just about building your Bible IQ in a year like it says on the cover, but it also provides insights that as a Christian made reading the Bible interesting and it got me reading more verses, chapters and looking into the context of scenarios written.
Thanks Netgalley for granting me a digital copy of this book. It's a must-read for anyone looking to explore the Bible and increase their knowledge.

[Note:  This book was provided free of charge by Multonah Waterbook Press in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.]

There are really two main problems I have with this book as it relates to what it claims to be, although for the record I think it a very fine book (more on that later).  First, this book does not consist of a series of 52 essays, as the author claims it to.  Rather the book contains 52 mini-treatises that deal with the subjects the author has in mind

Core 52: A Fifteen-Minute Daily Guide to Build Your Bible IQ in a Year by author Mark E. Moore is a useful tool for anyone wanting to delve deeper into studying the Bible. It has a remarkable 15 minute daily lesson on popular, key scripture. Everything is covered from Creation to Heaven!

In this easy to follow guide the daily lesson includes an essay about a theme found in the Bible, verses to memorize, scripture to read, an "overachiever challenge,” along with a book suggestion that goes with th

Core 52 is a wonderful guide to learn more about God's Word, the Bible. The author, Mark E. Moore is a teaching pastor in Phoenix, AZ and has been a professor at several Christian colleges and universities, as well as being the author and co-author of many books. In Core 52 readers will find a well-organized plan to, as the title suggests, build your Bible IQ. I liked the easy to understand language and how the author has laid out the information in a 52-week structure to guide the reader into f ...more

I obviously did not use this as a weekly Bible study supplement :) I just read through the essays in order to review, but I do like the format.

This book helps you dive into main doctrines of the Christian faith, memorize verses, and spend time in the Word. A lot of devotionals (and that's kind of what this is) don't emphasize getting into the Word itself.

As far as the essays go, I was impressed at the level of neutrality Moore was able to maintain. There was something early on that had me think

In "Core 52", Mark E. Moore takes readers through a 52 week, 15 minute a day, Bible reading and study for the purpose of mastering the 52 most important verses in the Bible.  If you want to know the Bible better, Pastor Moore offers a way to build Bible knowledge and Christian worldview as well as creating a hunger to read the whole Bible.  

Each week, you follow a schedule of reading, memorizing, meditating and performing an application task.  Also included is an overachiever challenge and bonus

A particular line from the introduction of this book seemed to jump out at me.

“There’s a reason so many people want to know the Bible better: they know the Bible will make them better.”


This is precisely why I wanted to read Core 52, because in doing so, I gain better knowledge of my Bible that ultimately results in a better me.

Spending 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week, reading the provided questions and essay answers in this book, most certainly helps me know and understand the Bible better.

I am always looking for books that will get me flipping pages in my Bible and studying on a deeper level. If that interests you as well, then Core 52 is a book that you want to pick up for your own personal library! This book provides 52 weekly plans that include an essay about a theme found in the Bible, scripture to memorize that fits with that theme, scripture to read and meditate on, an "overachiever challenge", and a book suggestion that fits with the theme of the week. Some of the themes i ...more

*I was sent an e-arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

I am going through and listening to the full cast audio version of the bible this year and decided to check this out to help augment my biblical understanding and to help me to incorporate the lessons as well.

With each section including a main point, focal bible quote, expansion on meaning, and then a helpful checklist, I can see this being a great gift for a loved one or for yourself.

The checklists include verses to read, bon

Core 52: A Fifteen-Minute Daily Guide to Build Your Bible IQ in a Year by Mark E. Moore is a fifteen minute daily Bible study that will take you through the Bible in 52 weeks. Each week as its own chapter that starts with a brief summary followed by a list for reading/studying. Core 52 would make a lovely gift for anyone interested in learning scripture or a wonderful treat for yourself.

Core 52
By Mark E. Moore
To be clear I am not even halfway through this book to give it a true review however from what I have read I want to share my thoughts and encourage you to read it.
Although the book is advertised as a 15 minute a day read to master important verses of the Bible, I would recommend setting aside more time. The first day is long and the following day's challenges can vary in length. I have a very distracting life (kids, husband… need I say more) as I’m sure many do and I end
