About the Author

Dr. Ray C. Stedman (1917-1992) grew up in the rugged cowboy country of Montana. Abandoned by his father when he was a young boy and emotionally cut-off from his mother, Ray had a ruggedly independent upbringing. Yet, through faith, he matured into one the great pastors, expositors, and spiritual leaders of the twentieth century. Todays church is filled with pastors and leadersmen like David Roper, Charles Swindoll, and Luis Palauwho consider him their mentor and lifelong friend. Ray was a mans man, who ended up being the father of four daughters. He and his family lived through the turbulent era of the 1960s and the Jesus Movement, a time of turmoil and heartache for Ray and his wife, Elaine, and a remarkable time of growth and expansion in his own ministry. Biblical teaching (exposition) was Rays calling and his passion, and he motivated people by the power of the preaching of the Word of God. He also inspired and taught many through the written word. With over nineteen books to his credit, from Spiritual Warfare to his insightful commentary Adventuring Through the Bible, Stedmans published works span the experiences of Christian life, including Body Life, a book that had tremendous impact on the church in the twentieth century. Ray Stedmans preeminent goal was to be a faithful steward of the gifts God had given him. By examining the life of this remarkable but very human man, you will find lessons and applications for your own life. (Taken from the cover of Portrait of IntegrityThe Life of Ray C. Stedman by Mark S. Mitchell)

I never write reviews but when I saw someone rated this book a 1 I couldn't believe it and had to speak up. This has been the most wonderful and enlightening book I have ever read in understanding the bible. The Ray Stedman has truly been blessed by the Lord in teaching and understanding the word of God. I read the bible from cover to cover along side Adventuring Through the Bible and the transformation God has made in my life has been amazing. If you ever struggled with reading the entire bible cover to cover, this companion book will get you excited and help you all enjoy it all the way through. My faith has been strengthened and I am ordering more for friends. Don't pass this one up!!

Ray Stedman is one of the great men of the 20th century. Pastor of the Peninsula Bible Church for half a century, he was the author of more than 30 books. He brought a fresh and vital understanding to the Bible and influenced countless men and women with his ministry, including Chuck Swindoll, who said "Ray Stedman is what I want to be when I grow up." This book is a wonderful introduction to Ray and his marvelous teaching. My wife and I have given many copies to friends. All of Ray's sermons can be yours free at pbc.org.

Format: Hardcover
I am totally baffled by that 1st person's rating. From the moment you open the book, Mr. Stedman draws you in with his easy-to-understand style. I've been reading the Bible since 1984 and this book has helped me truly understand the meaning behind the original texts. The english language is not as elaborate as the languages of the Bible and Mr. Stedman's vast experience at studying the Word gives you much more insight. He flatly states it's not in replacement of your Bible but is meant to be a companion read along with Scripture. It has really helped me gain a deeper understanding of the Word - which is exactly what it is intended to do.

Format: Hardcover
This book is to the Bible as the picture on the front of the box the 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle came in...you could put the puzzle together without ever having the benefit of seeing what the final image should look like, but it would be a long, hard, often frustrating task. That is the way I would describe trying to understand all of the Bible having now had the benefit of using this book for our current Sunday School study, and I have been a Christian since childhood.

Stedman is just a wonderful scholar and Bible teacher. This book, with the aid of Denney, starts with an overview of how the Old and New Testaments compliment each other. He then moves on to grouping the books that have generally common themes. Finally he goes into each book with a nice overview of key points and stories. By the time you get down to the individual book level, you can't wait to go back to the Bible and read that book/chapter again, but this time, knowing what to look for, and seeing it much more clearly and cohesively than you ever have before.

Many people have successfully read through the Bible though about the time you get into Leviticus it is a major struggle...and some even stop right there. But Stedman tells you what the theme of that book is and what to look for, and, sure enough, now it is a lot easier to get through all the genealogy and dimensions and understand that this book is about explaining God's way to Wholeness.

Every person will find a part of their daily struggle in the way Stedman portrays the history of Old Testament Israel. We are obedient to God for a while, then we go into a decline which frequently requires some discipline in order to show us our folly, and then God delivers us back to the path.

This book is a valuable study guide to use beside your Bible. It has helped clarify many passages. Also, it follows scripture giving you a better understanding overall. I bought two of these, one for me and one for my daughter. She has already read 4 chapters since Christmas. A very informative and helpful book for the every day person.

I like to read through the Bible every year. Every year I try to do this a little differently from the year before. This year I picked up Ray Stedman's book. I learned a great deal I never knew before. He is very gifted,and able to tie things together so well that story upon story all merge and fold together to reveal the amazing Adventure of God in this world. It is powerful. I got so excited I bought 6 more copies to hand out to friends. I recommend it for those who are well studied as well as people new to the Word.

I am also astounded by the "1" rating. Just going through the first couple of chapters puts the books of Moses in a whole new light. Stedman managed to get me enthusiastic about reading through the book of Numbers.

I especially appreciate how he ties together the Old and New testament books in an easy to understand fashion. While this book will not take the place of a commentary, it really helps to put the whole Bible in perspective and relate everything.
