From the Back Cover

Everything You Want to Know about the Bible (well, maybe not everything … but enough to get you started) An informative, brief, easy-to-read, and above all funintroduction to the Bible. For many people, the Bible is like a foreign country: a dusty old place they’ve never visited full of strange languages and odd customs. But many people have heard of the Bible’s wonders and want to get a first-hand look. Everything You Want to Know about the Bibleis the perfect guidebook for exploring the Bible in a faithful but fun way. This guide to the "ultimate manufacturer’s manual" communicates complex ideas and sophisticated concepts in a non-threatening way. At the same time, the authors provide solid theology and sound information about the Bible. This resource—for Christians and the unchurched alike—is not only unashamedly evangelical, but also relevant, informative, accurate, and readable. This innovative introduction to the Bible has three parts: • The Great Journey—answers background questions about the Bible: Where did it come from? Who wrote it? When was it written? What’s it all about? •The Big Picture—delves into the content of the Bible itself, taking readers through the significant periods, events, and key people. • Stuff at the Back—gives suggestions on how to read the Bible and includes short essays from various writers about their favorite Bible passage.

About the Author

Peter Downey is on executive staff at a Christian school in Sydney, Australia. The author of three marriage and parenting books, including So You're Going to be a Dad, he was listed in The Bulletin magazine as one of Australia's Top Ten parenting authors. He is also author of Everything You Want to Know about the Bible (co-authored with Ben Shaw), a book about Jesus for the Bible Society, and has written for a range of journals and publications. Although he has a Bachelor, Masters, and Doctoral degrees in Arts and Education and a diploma in Biblical Studies, he feels like a guy writing a book about automotive engineering when all he’s done is worked part-time in a carwash. He and his wife have three daughters.

Ben Shaw is a curate at Emmanuel Church in Wimbledon, London. He studied theology and went on to receive his MA in ancient history. A former rock singer and guitarist with the Australian-based Christian rock band In the Silence, he does a lot of speaking and continues to perform musically. His greatest love is his wife, Karen.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My young adults class asked for help understanding the Bible and we found this resource through someone who was using it at another church. It is an excellent overview of how the Bible came to be written and the themes of Scripture. I use it in a chapter a week format and supplement the text with closer study of relevant Scripture passages. Keep this resource in mind as you look for help to understand the Bible.
