This is a great book for people who are just trying to read the bible from cover to cover. The illustrations are top notch. And the background info. on the characters and history are very informative. the text is down to earth. It's very useful if you read it along with each chapter in the bible that you are reading.

I teach an adult Sunday School Class and this book has helped me immensely.It has so many interesting facts that have added fresh insight for the lesson.I have many different study bibles but this book correlates so many verses in such a thought provoking way that I now refer to it first in preparing for Sunday.Great buy!I have reordered the book for gifts.
This is yet another book from Stephen M. Miller to find a permanent place in my Bible resource library. It is sophisticated, yet simple all at the same time. Often, books on the Bible are, frankly, boring and seem to drag on to the point I often abandon reading them despite honorable intentions.This one includes beautiful, colored illustrations that spark your imagination and transport you back thousands of years ago.The word "complete" aptly describes this book as it covers Genesis through Revelation. Every book includes a summarization of Main Point, Writer, Date and Location.I love, love, love the generous number of short, colorful vignettes all along the way that catch your interest and provide all sorts of Bible "cool to knows".While easy to read, this book gives you the "nitty gritty" details, but always comes back to the big picture and important take-a-ways. The author asks us intriguing questions to ponder while sharing the differing, common day answers according to today's theologians.This book tops my list to give as a gift for friends and family no matter what point they are in their Christian journey.
