A Guided Tour from Genesis through Revelation
Reading the Bible need not be a haphazard journey through strange and bewildering territory. Like an experienced tour guide, How to Read the Bible Book by Book takes you by the hand and walks you through the Scriptures. For each book of the Bible, the authors start with a quick snapshot, then expand the view to help you better understand its key elements and how it fits into the grand narrative of the Bible. Written by two top evangelical scholars, this survey is designed to get you actually reading the Bible knowledgeably and understanding it accurately.
In an engaging, conversational style, Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart take you through a given book of the Bible using their unique, progressive approach:
â¢ Orienting Data--Concise info bytes that form a thumbnail of the book
â¢ Overview--A brief panorama that introduces key concepts and themes and important landmarks in the book
â¢ Specific Advice for Reading--Pointers for accurately understanding the details and message of the book in context with the circumstances surrounding its writing
â¢ A Walk Through--The actual section-by-section tour that helps you see both the larger landscape of the book and how its various parts work together to form the whole. Here you are taken by the hand and told, Look at this!
How to Read the Bible Book by Book can be used as a companion to How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth. It also stands on its own as a reliable guide to reading and understanding the Bible for yourself.

Mr. Fee does a great job, as with all of his writings, in condensing and simplifying scripture so as to make it digestible for those of us lay folk.
I appreciate his How to Read the Bible series as it has helped me think a little deeper about scripture at large.
For the careful reader Dr Fee's material will help define the central importance of the issue of the 'mission to the Gentiles'--which first presents itself in Genesis narrative, particularly when God initiates the covenant with Abraham. God's choice of Israel is the beach head from which the salvation of the world is launched. This fulfillment of God's purpose is dramatized by Israel's encounter with the nations about her and her response to that encounter right up to, and including the New Testament and continues to the present.
This is high drama, indeed, and this book helps the average person to see the drama and, better, their place in it.
