The Bare Bones Bible Handbook by bestselling author Jim George is the perfect resource for learning about the books of the Bible in short, fascinating overviews that include...
- The grand theme and main points of each book
- The key men and women of God and what you can learn from them
- The major events in Bible history and their significance
- Quick, simple, personal applications for spiritual growth and daily living
- Tips for improved personal study and a one-year Bible reading plan
Each overview takes only 10 minutes to read and will enable you to master the books of the Bible more quickly. You'll find this a clear, practical, and fascinating guide well worth keeping next to your Bible at all times. Excellent for anyone who wants to understand and mine the riches of God's Word more deeply.
What you will find in this resource are the essentials of every book of the Bible. Discover the grand theme and main points of each book. Identify key men and women from the Scriptures. Learn practical lessons for godly living from these individuals. There are maps, book outlines, dates when the book was authored, and short lists that organize the biblical material in a condensed and clear way.
The book is ordered following the Protestant tradition. There are no apocrypha books outlined. George starts with the background: author, date, setting, and theme. He then moves through skeleton outlines. These outlines use alliteration and are of a sermonic style. There is one brief summary paragraph for each point in the outline. The Putting Meat On The Bones section notes other significant material to explain the Biblical text. The Fleshing It Out In Your Life section will encourage you as George relates the Biblical text to your present circumstances. The Life Lessons section is organized in a bulleted fashion identifying key theological, relational, and practical principles that can be implemented in your life immediately. There is one additional list at the end of each chapter that very rarely goes past 10 points that summarize an important facet of the biblical text.
The Bare Bones of the Bible is an excellent tool for gleaning the nuts and bolts from each book of the Bible. If you are a mom or dad trying to keep it simple for your kids, a student trying to review the essence of each book of the Bible, or are just curious about the Bible and want a biblical-based perspective of the Scriptures, or you want to share your faith and talk intelligently about the Bible, look no further than The Bare Bones of the Bible Handbook.

Rev. Mamie5 Stars Out Of 5February 12, 2008Rev. MamieThis is one of the best Bible handbooks on the bookshelves today! It is simple to understand, but give great detailed information on each book of the Bible. I have donated a copy to each minister on our ministerial staff. I recommend it for pastors, minister, teachers and other lay leaders.
Bruce Wallace5 Stars Out Of 5December 11, 2006Bruce WallaceI recently bought this little book and am thrilled with it. If you want a book that gets to the point about books of the Bible in concise fashion--this is it. Each book overview starts with a scripture from the book itself and concludes with a few personal applications. The book also has a "bare bones" section on Bible interpretation which is simple and great for anyone wanting to get tips on digging deeper.
