Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Great intro to the bible for 10+  Mar 19, 2007
I originally bought How to Get the Bible into your Life. I liked it a lot. It made the Bible seem practical in a way I didn't know it could be. This book may be a bit redundant, but well worth owning for the historical aspects. Both very well written. This book is well-researched and unbiased--when two interpretations are possible, he gives you a choice to decide which one to believe.
 
Fabulous Illustrations!  Aug 13, 2006
This is a wonderful text, incredibly useful.

However, what I most enjoy are the fantastic illustrations. So often in Christian publishing, the graphics are dull and insipid. But in this book, the artist captured period details with strong realism and fluid movement. It is obvious that he did a tremendous amount of research and I feel like my understanding of Scripture grew not only through the author's work, but also through the work of the artist.
 
The sequel is great, too.  Nov 15, 2003
This is a really good intro to the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Clear, simple, and biblically solid.

But I like the sequel even better because it not only gives you the short course on each book in the Bible, it helps you put it to practice.

The first book--How to Get into the Bible--is history. The second book--How to Get the Bible into My Life--is history applied to our lives today.

Both are helpful, well-written, and insightful.

 
Great Study Guide  Jan 3, 2002
How to Get Into the Bible is a wonderfully laid out book that really brings the messages of the Bible home. Each book of the Bible is reviewed. Timelines and maps of the surrounding areas, found in the first page or so of each review, help the reader keep straight complicated chronological and geographical data. Also at the end of each review is the encore section. This tells the reader where they can find similar material in other books of the Bible.

I really liked the way the book is set-up. I enjoyed the shaded boxes, which highlight famous lines and ask, "did you know" questions about each book of the Bible. The section titled, How We Got Our Bible, is helpful. That is followed by a section highlighting the main points of Bible. This can help those who may not be familiar with many Bible stories. Moreover it serves as a good overview.

This book is great because it is written for a variety of readers from different age groups. Teenagers on up could enjoy this book. You can choose to use the book as a reference book, read it as novel, or just read each review and then read the accompany book.

 
Very useful  Feb 12, 2001
This book is an excellent companion book for Bible study. It's a great startup book for someone who's new to the Bible and can also serve as a handy quick reference for someone already familiar with the material.

Each book of the Bible is addressed in terms of plot, main characters, the book's relationship to other Bible stories, and more. It's like a well fleshed out study outline in many ways. What I particularly liked is that even the very short books of the Bible are given equal treatment. You'll get ample material about 1 Peter, Micah, Obadiah, and other small books along with the big boys like Isaiah and John.

Time lines help you keep a mental picture of what's going on around the events of each book. Where multiple opinions and theories abound, the authors introduce the reader to a variety of interpretations and the merits of each.

While many of the author asides and comments may prove uncomfortably liberal for evangelicals or fundamentalists, I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in digesting the Bible. It's entertaining and captivating enough to read straight through like a novel, educational enough to use as a supporting study text, and consistantly useful enough to keep it on your reference bookshelves.
