I highly recommend this to anyone who would like to read through the Bible, and feels they need a private tutor to do so! This is your personal tutor! You are given key weekly reading assignments along with an easy to understand summary and explanations of the chapters, purpose of the book, and how those particular chapters connect to other books of the bible. Great for the novice as well as for seasoned students of the Bible.
This is one of the first books I ordered from CBD.Its such a good resourse to both new & old learners of the word of God.Excell in the simplicity of explanations as well as information.As a new Bible school student ,this has been a great tool in doing my assignments. I have bought more copies and given away as gifts, receiving great compliments..Thanks.
I was introduced to this book about 30 years ago and have worn out 2 copies. I have given copies to friends here and abroad. I find it very easy to read and understand. H Mears' introduction to the history of the Bible and the outlines of each book of the Bible help me appreciate the message, the unity and the wonder of the compilation of God's unique letter to us. This latest revised NIV version will be a most valuable resource on my book shelf.
