“Jesus says what he means, and he means what he says,” Kindred says, “but there are many people today who just don’t know what Jesus said. This book points out to them exactly what Jesus said and what it means in their lives.”

For beginning Bible study students, reading the Bible can be confusing and intimidating, but when broken down into subject areas and better related to modern life, it can be more comprehensive and easier to relate to.

Author Douglas Kindred knows firsthand how powerful the Bible can be in one’s life. His new book, “Read Matthew to Live Your Life, Read John to Save Your Soul: The Best Advice I Ever Got” (published by WestBow Press), shares Jesus Christ’s transformative power through Kindred’s own experiences.

For a time, Kindred drifted away from his faith. When he developed a mold-related illness that devastated his health and life, he found solace in the advice his mother had given to him as a teenager: “Read Matthew to live your life, read John to save your soul.” The advice brought him back to his faith and inspired his book.

Kindred’s book serves as a how-to-guide for those who find the Bible challenging and difficult to understand. He hopes his book will help readers see the power of the Bible to transform their lives and inspire them to start their own journeys with God.

“Jesus says what he means, and he means what he says,” Kindred says, “but there are many people today who just don’t know what Jesus said. This book points out to them exactly what Jesus said and what it means in their lives.”
