Publisher's Description

Many who would be willing to search for truth in the Bible are intimidated by its size, the length of time it spans, the different languages and cultures within, or questions about the historical reliability and contemporary relevance of Scripture.

It begins with an essay on "How to Read and Study the Bible" before proceeding to chapters that provide a thorough overview of each of the Bible’s 66 books, summarizing each one’s content, author, evidences of authenticity, and historical context.

In addition to the full-color maps, photographs, reconstructions, and charts that equip readers throughout the volume, a smartphone- accessible QR code is included for each chapter that leads to related online teaching from noted Bible scholar Gene Getz. There’s also an article by Jeremy Howard (general editor of the award-winning HCSB Study Bible) explaining how each book of the Old and New Testaments was accepted into the Bible.
A great resource for seekers and Bible scholars alike.

    As a pastor, I have discovered a book here I would love to see all church members have to use in their personal Bible study. There is a chapter on every book of the Bible to give an overview of what you will be reading. Those who are visual learners will find a feast in this attractive volume. This hardback volume by B & H Publishing meets a real need!

    I congratulate the publishers for having the insight to see what some might call a niche market–KJV users. In light of World Magazine’s recent article stating the KJV was the preferred translation for 55% of Americans (April 5, 2014, pg. 68), perhaps it is more than a niche market after all. In any event, kudos to B & H Publishing.

    This book not only gives a good overview, but it suggests lines of thought for Bible students. For example, a key text is given for each book. You might not agree with their choice, but that is a great thought process in studying a book of the Bible. Key terms are vital and those are discussed briefly too. Things like purpose and occasion give real insight and the section called “First Pass” launches us into our reading. The section on finding Christ in the book keeps us Gospel focused too. I enjoyed the smaller books of the Bible (we can need extra help on some of the smaller books like those in the Minor Prophets) getting equal time.

    The section on reliability will be the least useful to many, but they usually come down on the conservative point of view. You might find a point to disagree on here and there, but overall the volume is really solid. There was a statement giving credence to “Q” in the formation of the Synoptic Gospels, but such statements are rare.

    The maps in the book are taken from Holman maps and they are outstanding and sharp. The selection of photos and charts add real value as well. The claim “a complete visual reference” by the publishers is not an exaggeration.

    As a bonus, you get two fascinating articles on the KJV. There are interesting ones on the Canon of the OT and the NT respectively as well. Each article is written on a level even beginning Bible students can grasp, but with real detail too.

    My best recommendation for this book: I am a pastor and I am going to encourage the dear folks I pastor to get this volume and enrich their own personal Bible study.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
