Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

Hebrews: Jesus is greater, so hold fast to Him - The Overview Bible Project

While I'm in Florida skipping out on winter and helping my folks a bit in their time of need I have little time to myself for writing. I have a half dozen posts in production but between work and mom & dad I'm lucky to be able to read the blogs I currently read, let alone actually write one of my own.

But I am emerging from the haze of unending errands (and dips in the neighbors pool) to say that I am so blessed to have found the Overview Bible Project, while it's not for everybody, it's right up my alley. Ask Mrs WideAwakeChristian, when I decide I like something, I start digging into the background, history, composition, origination, etc. of what ever I'm interested in. (I've even gone so far as to research the history of roads I like, and guess what - it was actually fascinating! The roads I like turned out to originally be narrow gauge railroads!)

The  Overview Bible Project is a gift from God for the incurable Berean, the more I dig there the more it's becoming a valuable tool in my understanding of God's word. What's more, it makes me want to get in there and read His word more and more. Check out the Overview Bible Project's article on Hebrews and tell me if you disagree. While not an actual bible study tool, the Overview Bible Project can best be described as those introduction pages to each book in the bible done right.


  1. Oh my, am I ever glad I didn't just scroll by this post. I've never heard of Overview Bible Project but I'm hooked. Thanks for the post. Hope all goes well with your parents. I'm assuming, hopefully correct that this is an age related stage of life thing. If so, been there, done that. It's a trip all in itself. Regardless, thanks for the post.
    God Bless
    See you There!

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Doug! It means a lot to hear.
