Publishers Description
Dr. Henrietta Mears was one of the great Bible teachers of the 20th Century. As Christian education director at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, she built one of the largest Sunday Schools in the world and wrote curriculum that was in such high demand that to publish it, she founded Gospel Light in 1933. Such notable Christian leaders as Richard C. Halverson, Luis Evans, Jr. and Bill Bright were among her students. Dr. Billy Graham has said, "She is certainly one of the greatest Christians I have ever known." Miss Mears was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on March 20, 1963.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A real classic.  Feb 10, 2007
This book is a classic - I've owned copies for 30 years and read it through several times already.
WOW! This is a great help in Bible Study!!!  Jan 28, 2005
I got my copy of this great Bible resource several years ago from a beloved Aunt who is now in Heaven. What a rich and good way to be blessed as you study Gods word. I can see why my Aunt loved this book; I do too. If you love the Lord Jesus Christ you will love this book.
A Book of Truths, for Some  Dec 11, 2002
I didn't care much for this book but have to say that that's probably because it didn't take the path I'd assumed it would.

I picked it up thinking that it would be a somewhat disinterested look at theology, historical events and so on, and an even-handed look at Judaism and Christianity.

It isn't. It's a book for believers, specifically, Christians, which is fine if that's what you want. The author, Henrietta C. Mears, is clear on her own beliefs and what she and the reader should believe. She's a little more fond of !!!!! than I care for, and there's a kind of a see?-I told-you-so kind of tone to it. Have you ever seen those bumper stickers that say something like, God Said It/I believe it/That's It! ?

That's how this book reads. Now, having said that, here's the general direction of the book.

Mears analyzes every book of the Bible. Every single chapter of her book starts out with the word Understanding, then names that book, from Genesis to Revelation. She reels off details and assessments of each book, with the underlying assumption that the reader agrees with what the Rev. Billy Graham says in the foreword to this book: "The Word of God is the only real authority we have."

So, for example, in her chapter on Genesis, she writes: Satan appears to have special enmity for the book of Genesis. No wonder the Adversary has bent his attacks upon it. It exposes him as the enemy of God and the deceiver of the human race; it foretells his destruction; it depicts his doom." A few pages later, we get this sentence Remember, Jesus Christ is the center of the Bible.

She also gives us such tidbits of information as this: there are 31,102 verses in the Bible, using 775,693 words*; Psalm 119 is the longest chapter; Psalm 117 the shortest. Ezra 7:21 contains all the letters of the alphabet except J (I don't know how well this fact stands up in translated versions and a conspiracy theorist could have a field day with the source J!); the longest book in the Old Testament is Psalms, the longest in the New Testament is Luke.

This book is probably best used in an adult Christian education class or something similar. I don't see it helping much on an ecumenical or evangelical level. Perhaps it works as a self-education tool, for someone who's arrived at Christian belief and wants a wider understanding of the sense of the full Bible.

*In English, I assume.

Great Book!  Oct 1, 2001
This book has tremediously helped me understand God's word. I recommend this book for new Christians and to anyone who reads the Bible but, just can not grasp what it is trying to say.
An excellent study tool...  Oct 8, 2000
This book is a perennial favourite for Bible students and well it should be - Ms. Mears accomplished something in her day that likely hasn't been matched since, and did it when the field of theology was dominated almost exclusively by men. Such fact attests that this book was divinely inspired. When one begins to read through the text, they'll sense that divine guidance!

The book is "a broad overview to help the reader see the Bible as a cohesive whole... how the books of the Bible fit together to form the entire Word of God."

If you're a bible student, brand new to study or seasoned, this is one of those must-have study titles for your library. Mears systematically walks through the Scriptures, giving a history of the times covered in the writings, spiritual insights and interpretations into the text, and application for everyday living. Her easy writing manner and style lend an exquisite charm and engages the reader to have interaction with the scriptures being dissected and discussed.

Not sure you should sit 'under' the teachings of a woman? Think again and join the ranks of Billy Graham, Bill Bright and Richard Halverson, who count among those whom she mentored, trained and tutored on the Word.

Can't recommend this one highly enough. Be blessed.
