The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible for Christian Schools
The song Route 66 by Bobby Troupe captured the heartbeat of a generation that dreamed of traveling the open road on U.S. 66, from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California. “Get your kicks on Route 66” became the rally cry and part of the song’s popular lyric.
If reading the sixty-six books of the Bible was like a Route 66 road trip across America, people might do more than casually flip through the bestselling book of all time. That idea captured the heart of Dr. Ron Jones, a seasoned pastor and Bible teacher, and inspired him to write The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible, making the Bible accessible to a new generation of people.
Ron says, "As useful as this travel guide might be, my words are no replacement for reading the Bible itself. My prayer is that you will fall in love with the Bible as much as I have. More so, I pray that you will deeply desire a relationship with its Author."
So, buckle up, and get your Bible kicks on the biblical Route 66.

What Others Are Saying About The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible
A survey of the Bible is not supposed to be fun or a particularly interesting read. But Dr. Ron Jones has dealt that perspective a death blow. This book is fun, interesting, informative, and insightful. I love it! Any expositor will be well served to consult it before diving into any book of the Bible. He or she will find this book to be well worth the read.

The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible can serve as a read along companion as you read the Bible in your daily life. Ron combines his pastoral experience, Bible teaching skill, and theological knowledge with his down-to-earth communication style to take us on this journey of getting to know the people, places, and life-changing truth of the Old Testament.

Not all preachers and teachers ever take the full Route 66 Tour of each book of the Bible in their study. Even fewer dare to preach their way through the whole council of God as contained in the whole Bible. Ron Jones has done both, and the fruit is an excellent guide to each book of the Bible.
Dr. Mark Bailey
Chancellor, Dallas Theological Seminary
We’re all looking for direction for our lives. Ron Jones shows us how the Bible gives us just that. Whether you’re just beginning your spiritual journey, or you are farther down the road, The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible is an amazing guide for the trip of a lifetime.
Dr. Jeff Barber
Executive Director, Park Cities Presbyterian Church, Dallas, Texas
The Ultimate Road Trip through the Bible is a wonderful introduction to the Old Testament and its core themes. It is crisp, clear, and full of suggested applications that allows someone not familiar with biblical content to get a frame for how the books of the Bible tell a full coherent story of what God is about. Comparing it to a trip on Route 66 in anticipation of the New Testament volume, I’d say fasten your seat belts for an enjoyable, informative ride."
Dr. Darrell Bock
Executive Director of Cultural Engagement and Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
Dr. Ron Jones has produced an excellently written grand overview of Scripture, easily accessible at a popular level, and just the right dose of detail to entice the most seasoned Bible scholar. This will be a great read for the seeker, the scholar, and anyone in between.
