Product Description

Approaching the Bible for the first time can be intimidating. At sixty-six books, nearly 800,000 words, and numerous kings, prophets, and deliverers, as well as priests and apostles, where should you begin? Often times one gives up before they even start.

In A Reader’s Guide to the Bible John Goldingay places the biblical books in their times and settings, and then lays out a memorable pattern for understanding the Bible. Three categories of biblical books—story, word, and response—form three doors into the cathedral that is the Bible: the story of God and his people, the word of God to his people, and the people’s response to God.

Whether you are a person of Christian faith or other faith, or no faith at all, here is a reliable guide to exploring the Bible. Written by a highly accomplished biblical scholar, A Reader’s Guide to the Bible joins a clear and direct style with a maestro’s touch.

Editorial Reviews

"John Goldingay's A Reader's Guide to the Bible (IVP, 2017) gets the big things right."

-- Marvin Olasky, World Magazine, May 12, 2018

"Goldingay's readable style, coupled with his ability to provide historical and literary context to shed light on difficult biblical passages, makes for an important contribution to biblical literacy, particularly for anyone fairly new to the critical study of Scripture."

-- Carson Brisson, Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology, Vol. 73(2)
