Item Description...
Written in non-technical language yet drawing on the latest fruits of study and research, this illustrated compendium starts with the "story" of the Bible, and then unpacks its various literary styles. Wisdom, chronicle, poetry, allegory, and apocalyptic elements are explained and illustrated. Sections on the Gospels and the great personalities of the Bible are supported by background historical and geographical information, and popular misconceptions about the Bible are also answered. Finally, there is a comprehensive summary of every book of the Bible, with suggested passages from each to read.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Seeing Clearly  May 24, 2008
For the new Christian, reading and interpreting the Bible can seem a daunting task. The mix of history, law, prophecy, poetry, and apocalyptic (sometimes concurrently) only adds to the confusion as the reader is not sure as to how different levels of the text are to be understood - particularly with the success of modern science serving as a cultural backdrop. The net result will often be a concentration on the more straightforward passages while leaving whole sections of the Bible (particularly in the Old Testament) unread or at least unprocessed.

David Winter attempts to clear much of the confusion in The Bible Made Clear with a beginner's look at the Bible. The purpose is not so much a commentary or interpretation as much as to provide a general framework within which the new Christian can approach Holy Scripture with some level of confidence and the understanding to understand the truths transmitted without resorting to a wooden literalism.

In each of the first eight chapters, the author covers a different aspect of the Biblical text and wrestles with its application to our modern age. Winter covers, successively, the question of historicity, the use of storytelling, ethical questions, the use of hero and villain contrasts, the Gospels as biography, the Wisdom literature, and apocalyptic. In each, he seeks to get behind the surface meaning of the text to set it in the context of a bigger picture of God's revelation to His people. Winter then follows this with a chapter where he answers some common objections to the Bible as a relevant text for our modern age and closes the book with a general outline of the Bible. Throughout the book, there are both illustrations (that are not essential but do add to its overall attractiveness) and inserts with little asides on topics not covered in the main body of the text. The latter is an excellent approach for a popular audience that is far less likely to check footnotes.

While certainly not a comprehensive guide, the author succeeds in giving an excellent introductory text that can serve as a stepping stone for new Christians (and some more mature Christians as well) to overcome the sometimes intimidating task of Bible study. For its purpose as a starting point for approaching the Bible intelligently, The Bible Made Clear is an unqualified success.
