5.0 out of 5 stars I liked it a lot. September 22, 2011
By Denise
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Bible has over a thousand chapters which is a lot of information to digest. However this book will help you get a quick handle on what's going on in each of its sixty-six books.

How is the book set up? Well, each of the sixty-six books of the Bible gets is explained in 1-2 pages. On these pages, the book follows an outline that covers seven items:

-the author
-the date when the book was written
-in ten words or less what each book's key theme is
-details of the key events, people, and messages of that particular book (this is the longest section)
-several key verses from that particular book
-any unique and unusual facts in the book
-and an inspirational or devotional thought for each book

Know that this is a small and short book, but then again, that's the whole point of it. It is meant to give you a nice, concise synopsis of each book of the Bible - and I felt like it succeeds nicely in doing just that. Other short books I really liked include The Prayer Project: How Each One of Us Can Make The World a Better Place to Live - In a Few Minutes a Day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jam Packed With Information! January 13, 2012
By thowell
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this little gem at my local Christian bookstore. Who knew that something so cheap could be so jam packed with useful information? I am 30 years old and have never read the Bible cover to cover. After joining a church & becoming actively involved in it last summer, I am a sponge, wanting nothing more than to soak up as much insight as possible to further strengthen my relationship with Christ.

I've heard of certain parables and stories within the Bible, (like Samson & Delilah, David & Goliath, etc.) but never knew which book they were in or which verses to read. Also, in my Bible study, I've learned that a little background and history research will work wonders for understanding certain books within the Bible. Who the author is, what his life was like, what the world was like during his life, etc. This book pulls out the no-nonsense, bare-bones facts of each book of the Bible.

If you have not read the Bible cover to cover like me, and want to learn how to study your Bible, you need the basics first. This little book provides the basics, and beyond...

5.0 out of 5 stars Book worm August 18, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent little reference book- great for people who are new to the Bible as well as people who are not. Provides a great synopsis of each book, with a little history and puts the book in perspective in relation to the others. A great addition to my library of Bibles, Bible study, reference books. Packs a lot of information in a small amount of space--a nice small book to take with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful brief commentary December 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got the kindle edition about a week ago and it took me 3 days, reading a little each day, to go thru the entire bible.

This book is best described as a brief commentary. It is useful, and stands out, because it is brief. It is especially useful for new or newer students of the Word. It is not intended to be a in-depth commentary for an advanced student.

Each of the 66 books in the bible is divided into the same 7 sections. The book gives some information on the author, and the date written,followed by a single sentence describing the book. The next section is entitled "Details, please," which provides a little more depth. The next section lists a few of the most quotable verses for the particular book. Then comes a section is called "Unique & Unusual" and provides a few facts about the book. The last section is called "So What" and gives an inspirational or devotion.

The kindle edition table of contents worked well. It is easy to find whatever chapter you wish to review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Title is Misleading December 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was sadly disappointed after I bought this book and saw just how little information it provides, I should have read the reviews more carefully, but I put too much focus on the stars this book had received and it's low price. I think this book would be more appropriately labeled, "Beginning to Know Your Bible". I was finally wanting to study each book of the bible more in depth, yet through books that presented the information in language that I wouldn't have to constantly be referring to a dictionary in order to understand (wanted layman's terms). This book definitely keeps the language simple, and would be great to give to a younger belivier (vocabulary seems to be at about a middle school level) who's wanting to have an overview before beginning each book, or as a quick reference. I've been looking a bit online and don't seem to be finding what I'm looking for, I do have a hard copy of "Unlocking the Bible" by David Pawson, which so far has been the best match for me. The search goes on...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very Helpful January 17, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book presents the main points of each book in the Bible in a easy and very comfertable way! It is easy written and still pack with knowledge and "Must knows". I really liked this book because it's easy to have with you where ever you go.
Knowing the word of God is essential for Christian living, and this book is really a great help to learn the word of God in a deeper and more intimate way.
Awesome book that I will give full rating!
