The Greatest Words Ever Spoken: Everything Jesus Said About You, Your Life, and Everything Else

by Steven Scott

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


In The Greatest Words Ever Spoken, Steven K. Scott, a popular international speaker and successful businessman, compiled more than one thousand of Jesus’ statements into simple-to-navigate themes. Everything Jesus said about children, angels, the church, service, love, joy, happiness, and ministry can quickly be found. Even topics such as anger, enemies, pride, anxiety, and taxes are chronicled. Whatever anyone may be seeking, this book has everything the Son of God ever proclaimed in the Bible.

Scripture verses are formatted in a two-column layout. The nine general categories are simplified into several detailed subcategories. Truths from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, as well as Acts, both Corinthian letters and Revelation, fill the pages. Complete with notes, a Scripture index, and a subject index, this book is easy to use.

Scott invites readers to experience the power of Christ’s words. He explains, “My hope is that as you study the words of Christ, any weaknesses in your current foundation will be revealed, and you will replace them with the undiluted, indestructible concrete of Jesus’ words” (p. 7). Wisdom and truth overflow from each sentence addressing real and relevant life issues. The verses relate Jesus’ mission, teachings, claims, and promises to all.

There is something for everyone in this book, regardless of spiritual level. This helpful paperback has many uses and the power to change lives because of Jesus’ infallible words. It can be used as a devotional tool, topical reference, or Bible study. Although it may be difficult to read straight through, it will better serve as a supplement to personal devotions or Bible studies. I recommend it for those ages ten and up seeking wisdom or spiritual guidance. – Michelle Archer,
