Endorsements

I have often felt that if someone could extract from the Bible the carefully selected group of passages, such as has been done in this instance, that it would stimulate a new interest in, understanding of, and appreciation of the Bible. This I think has been accomplished in this book, and I shall make great use of it personally and am glad to commend it to all people who are interested in a greater knowledge of the Bible.
-Norman Vincent Peale,
Marble Collegiate College

The Concise Bible is the answer to the general reader's need for a version which he can read rather than place in a respectful spot on the shelf somewhere... This version is likely to be the beginning of a new interest in the complete text.
-Harry D. Gideonse,
former president, Brooklyn College

An excellent starting point for younger readers - and not only for younger readers: halfway through this glorious volume, one reviewer vowed it wouldn't be so long, next time, before he spent an evening with the Word of God.
-William F. Rickenbacker
