I own the 1998 edition and was crazy about it. If you are new to the Bible, the 1998 edition provided a wonderful starting point to understanding the Bible. If you were a Bible student, the 1998 edition pulled alot of information that you already knew together. I was so enthusiastic about it that I ordered several more of the 2005 edition to give away thinking that the updated version probably had some graphic updates. I was dumbfounded to find that the entire second part of the book had been completely changed!! All the gems that were there have been removed. I'll be returning these and try to find the 1998 edition!!!

I work with college students and have found that many do not know what the Bible _as a whole_ says. This book has been helpful in explaining the entire Bible in one year, especially with International Students. I strongly recommend this book if you work with students of any age, a new believer in Jesus, or for an easy way to re-frequent yourself with the Bible.

this book is straight-forward and easy to grasp even for the beginner of Bible knowledge. Charts and tests help you to digest the material and commit many basics to memory. Just follow it, you are sure to know your Bible at the end of 30 days! Not just a title - very practical!

Have you ever wished that there was an idiots guide to the Bible that gave context to all of it's parts? The Bible is a beautiful collection of assorted types of literature but it's organization and foreignness often creates confusion. So scholars claim we live in the most biblically illiterate time in modern history. While many have theological and doctrinal opinions and views few understand the book called the Bible. 30 Days to Understanding the Bible by Max Anders is exactly the sort of "idiot proof" guide many people are looking for. Anders' uses a simple format that explains how the bible is assembled and how each parts fits within or connects to the rest of the parts. The majority of the book covers the Old Testament (due to its size) and lays out a simplistic easy to follow and retain story. Every element is broken down into smaller digestible elements which are repeated and tested throughout the chapter.

For instance:

The Old Testament is divided into it's parts.

17 Historical Books

5 Poetical Books

17 Prophetical Books

The historical books are divided into smaller eras (ie Creation, Patriarchs, Exodus, etc). Every era is linked to a picture, a central character, a geographic location, and a story line summary. The story line summaries are one liners that sum up what that era is about. The reader is able to learn piece by piece each book of the Bible as he or she explores the eras. The reader is given pictures, maps, and subdivisons that aid in understanding the bigger picture of scripture and it's events. Each chapter contains simple tests right after new information is given and the tests are repeated becoming slightly more difficult as you go in the short chapters.

Format: Paperback
As a part of the Walk Thru the Bible Ministries, this book gives the reader a general overview of the Bible and its themes, significant players and times in a very easy-to-understand and easy-to-remember format complete with pictures and charts that should be memorized as the reader finishes the book. The Old Testament is broken down into its various books (historical, poetical and prophetical) as well as its various eras (creation, patriarch, exodus, conquest, judges, kingdom, exile, return and silence) so the reader understands the flow of events from Genesis to Malachi.

The New Testament is broken down into the Gospel Era, The Church Era, the Missions Era and the Epistles. The book breaks down Biblical themes into eight subjects and then takes you through the fundamental doctrines of the faith. 30 Days to Understanding the Bible is a very easy read - excellent for a young Christian wanting to know how all 66 books of the Bible tie together.

I have the old edition of this book, but recently discovered that there is a new revised and expanded edition of the book that I just ran across and flipped through -- very impressive updates to this incredible book, now even more valuable than before! This book is a must-have for Christian parents wanting to train their children in God's Word or for any Christian looking to gain a comprehensive overview of Scripture.

This is a great book to get a comprehensive overview of the Bible. Gaining an understanding of the context of daily readings helps the novice scripture reader get the most from readings. Anders easy style of writing leads the reader through exercises designed to really understand God's Word. Truly faith-enriching. I look forward to more of Ander's "30 Days To . . ." series.

Whether you are a seeker, a new believer, or a seasoned Christian, this book will be a great resource for learning and teaching the basics of the Christian faith. Sections 1 and 2 lay a solid foundation on which to study and build your knowlege of God's Word, the Bible, from which all Christian beliefs are drawn. Section 3 in the 2005 version summarizes the 10 great doctrines of the Christian faith -- the beliefs that define what the Christian faith is all about. This book is a must-have for all Christians and all who are interested in Christianity -- I highly recommend it!
