    Highly Recommend

    This book gives a broad perspective of the Bible. We used this for a Bible Study group, made up of newer believers, and those who had studied the Bible for years. It was enjoyed by both groups. The questions /activities encourage you to remember things by repetition. We spent 9 weeks on the book, and it was time well spent.

    The Most Useful Bible Study Aid I Have Ever Used

    This book is practical and easy to read. It teaches the structure and outline of the Bible as a basis for further study. It is not a commentary. It truly gives the reader an understanding of how the Bible is put together, who wrote it, why they wrote it and when they wrote it. It is great for new Christians and for those who have been on the journey for a long time. I recommend it for everyone who is tired of being embarrassed about not knowing the basics of the Bible.

    I great way to get started!

    This book is very interactive, which is something I was looking for. It takes you step by step through the Bible so that you understand all the BASICS. It is very basic, and I was hoping to learn more about each book of the Bible. Although it gave a short synopsis, and helps you remember names, places, timelines, etc. it really doesn't get into the sort of depth I was looking for. It is a great read for the first time through the Bible!

    I Finally Understand the History of the Bible, Thanks to This Book

    My new years resolution was to gain an understanding of the history of the Bible. I grew up learning Bible stories and specific scriptures, but have never been able to understand all of that in the context of history. Max Anders' book is elementary and repetitive, but in a few hours of working through it, already I understood enough to put much of what I have learned in the past into context. I like the workbook style of this book, and the fact that each chapter includes a review of all previous chapters. The repetition is key in retaining the information. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a better understanding of the Bible in its historical context.

    Good Basic Overview

    I have used this book for several years to teach a 'Bible 101' class. It is a very good resource for learning a basic, broad brushed overview of the entire Bible, from the geography and structure to the main characters, themes and teachings. It is a great catalyst for a follow-up in-depth class.
