I found the authors other books very good and insightful. I have purchased this book in paperback and e-book, easy to read and understand. Helps you understand Biblical passages in context and in light of times and culture. A valuable Bible study aid.
My women's Bible study used this over a period of 30 weeks and we loved it. It's easy to read but conveys a lot of information about biblical times. Several people in my class said they had always been intimidated by the letters of Paul, but the book deals with those letters and makes them come alive. The section on Revelation was also very good.
Our adult Sunday School class is using this book and eveyone has a copy. It has made many want to search deeper and that has been a blessing. We never get thru a chapter a week so it takes much longer than 30 days to get thru all the lessons. The questions at the end of each chapter are great for discussion and to challenge each of us.
I am enjoying this book. I have learned alot, it is a book I hope I can get my adult children to read and will recommend it to a new believer. It explains things in such a way that it brings reality to our faith. I love the "Did you know?" sections.
