Before you dive into the finer facets of the law detailed in Leviticus or attempt to reason out Revelation's mystical imagery, get the backstory from the experts. With informative articles from specialists in biblical studies, you'll learn the themes and terms you'll need to interpret this broad narrative. Let frustrated attempts to decode the Scriptures give way to a confident and eager reading of the story that gives shape to all of life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
4 stars  Apr 1, 2007
**** Reading the Bible is at once simple and complex. To help you understand the structure of the Bible, having a book like this one can be useful and facilitate your reading plan, especially if you have signed onto a speed Bible reading program, ie, The Bible In Ninety Days or similar plans. However, this book can also be a useful tool for those who are already quite comfortable with the Holy Word. Detailed charts and outlines breaking down the books of the Bible and clarifying where things fit on a timeline are almost worth the price of this volume alone. ****
