Are you looking for a Bible study companion to help you in your study time, or a daily devotional to help you grow in Christ, meditate on God’s Word and to learn more about a specific Book of the Bible in more detail? Perhaps you would like to deepen your knowledge, or maybe you’re wanting a guide to help you in explaining a specific Book of the Bible as you preach or lead a Bible study group? If you are looking for just one or all of the things, the For You series from The Good Book Company may be just what you’re looking for. The For You series offers all these things rolled into one very helpful book, and more.
If you’ve visited my blog before, you may remember reading my review of the book, Nehemiah For You by Eric Mason, which you can find here. It’s a wonderful and insightful study guide to help you learn more about the Book of Nehemiah in detail. A few years ago, I purchased my first For You book from the series, which was all about the Book of Philippians. I’ve found these books to be really useful in helping me understand more about a particular Book of the Bible. They are amazing to add into your Bible study time, and to also use as a daily devotional. Each chapter throughout the book is in easy-to-read chunks, so it’s great for reading daily.

As you may have already noticed, this particular book, which is also the latest release in the For You series, is a walkthrough and guide to the Gospel of Mark. As with the other books in the series, and as mentioned above, they can be read as a standalone book, a daily devotional or to simply use in your Bible study time. Throughout the book, which is separated into different chapters, the pages delve deeper into the chapters and verses in the Gospel of Mark, and at the end of each chapter, there is a ‘questions for reflection’ section, to help you think about and discuss what you have just read.
“Join Jason Meyer as he opens up Mark’s Gospel, helping you to turn your eyes to Jesus – His power, His Wisdom, and His compassionate heart.”
Jason Meyer provides a thorough commentary for the Gospel of Mark, which explores and explains the theme of this Gospel and all that it contains, along with the encouragements and challenges of the Gospel of Mark. It includes a Biblically-sound and scripture-based, easy-to-read, easy-to-follow description and detailed look at the verses that we read, along with everyday examples that are used to help the reader’s further understanding. The book shows how what we read is just as relevant and important for us to apply, use and know for our day-to-day lives today.
I found the content in the For You books to be well laid out inside, and Mark For You is a perfect example. I found it easy to read and follow, clearly presented, and divided into 14 chapters, with easy-to-understand explanations throughout. Sometimes, when I’m reading a particular verse or chapter, I find it helpful to have a study book or guide at hand which presents further reading and understanding. It helps me to learn more about what I have just read in the Bible, especially if there are any verses and chapters that I don’t quite understand, or I’d like a further explanation.
I find the questions at the end of each chapter help me to reflect, and help me to think how it can help me in my journey of faith, especially to think about the things that I’ve not necessarily thought about before. The book deepened my understanding of the Gospel of Mark.
I highly recommend the For You series. They are an amazing series of books, with new ones being released regularly.
