Book Description

The Bible Brief; is a summary of all the 66 books that make up the Bible as we know it today.  Written as an aid to Bible study, or a handy 'bite sized' reference book; this Bible guidebook gives an overall view listing the main points of the individual books involved.

Through all these 66 books, and the lives and trials of the characters within, I believe our Creator has one main thing to say - he loves us with a love that is beyond our comprehension to fully appreciate. The Bible is God's plan for our redemption and a history of his dealings with us - "warts & all." This is no 'sugar coated' work of some religious idealist; but rather is an account from many different individuals such as Kings, Prophets, Shepherds, Farmers etc; that records all the bad and ugly side of human nature; and yet still declares Gods love for us through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ.

That said, there is a huge amount of information contained within the pages of the Bible; too much to be absorbed at one sitting so to speak. It is for this reason that 'The Bible Brief' was written; to enable an overview of the individual books so that when time or circumstances permit you can go to the Bible itself and read the story in full - which I would recommend whole-heartedly!
The Bible Brief includes facts such as the time of writing and the author of the book, along with main characters involved, and some memorable scriptures are covered; along with a short summary of the book itself, and some 'Notes & Quotes' that may express my own views or input.

Perhaps most importantly the 'Messianic Link' section covers some of the messianic scriptures that unite all the 66 books. These are the scriptures that refer either directly or indirectly to the coming Messiah; recording everything from the prophesied virgin birth to the resurrection and the second coming of Christ in power.

Ideal as a quick guidebook for use by groups or individuals, The Bible Brief is laid out in the following format that allows for easy access to all the information contained within.
WHEN:The date of the book was written or the time period covered.
WHO: The author or presumed author of the book.
PEOPLE & PLACES:  The 'main players' & places involved or referred to.
SOUND-BITES: Memorable quotes, sayings or verses from the book.
THE MESSIANIC LINK: The coming Messiah is mentioned throughout - and ties together - the 66 books. These are just some of the scriptures that allude to or name the Messiah directly.
THE BOOK: An outline of the book or letter.
NOTES & QUOTES: General thoughts & comments on the preceding book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Let's be clear, A Bible Summary book such as this one, is not a substitute for the Bible! Bible summaries should be approached in much the same way as Bible Study books, inasmuch as they are an aid to Bible study - a research tool if you will. This summary of the complete Bible, is intended to help direct and guide your study efforts, and lays out each of the 'books' within the Bible in seven distinct areas of interest; enabling the reader to gain a clear overall picture of what is within the pages of the actual Bible.

Ideal as a study guide for group or individual Bible study, The Bible Summary is a handy reference book when an overview, rather than an in-depth study of the Bible is required.

About the Author

A builder/joiner to trade, James also studied for the ministry through Bible College in England,and has been involved in various aspects of church ministry over the years.
Hobbies include Fly fishing, growing vegetables, playing guitar and D.I.Y. Oh of course,...writing!

Writing has become his main passion these days,and he especially loves to write from his own experiences, that includes anything from Gardening to Building to Bible studies - The 'Spotlight on the Prophets' series, and The Bible Brief, a Bible Summary / study book, being two examples of the latter books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful for Bible Students November 21, 2012
By ST
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book and have really enjoyed reading through it. I enjoy studying the Bible but because of the complexity of the book, it's difficult to remember where I read what. This is like having a little cheat sheet with the reminders of where everything is. It's also nice to read a quick review to peak my memory of the things I've read. Great idea and very handy to have for those who like to study the Bible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delivers exactly what it promises January 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is indeed a great little find. Especially for the price. It gives a summation of the general information within each individual book of the Bible. I was torn between giving the book 4 or 5 stars. I decided on 4 stars because of, although they are jaw dropping funny at times, the over zealous religious opinions offered in the "Notes & Quotes" section found at the end of each book summation. For instance, "the pseudo-science of evolution... and the move towards 'creationism'." Now that's comical to me. A nice little chuckle with a roll of the eyes. So take away the religious nut job opinions and the book is a nice little quick reference guide to the Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bible resource June 20, 2013
By Agape
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I give this 5-stars especially since I got it when it was free. Free is good. But even if you pay for it, it's worth it. A must have addition to your Christian Bible and other study materials. The "Sound-Bites" (popular quotes from each book) is an excellent feature. Also, it appears you also have the Kindle "New Oxford Dictionary" (which I had purchased almost two years ago) you get the meaning when you hi-lite a word.

This is worthwhile and recommended as supplemental to your Bible study, but the Bible, itself, is your final resource and your primary Word. Man wrote this summary and guideline, God wrote the book. Always be a discerning Christian when using study and guideline since the Word is the final authority...

Again, recommended and not too costly, plus handy have on your mobile device or desktop.
