    Highly recommend

    Valuable insights into the scriptures. Quick tips to understand the circumstances and journeys of each book in the Bible. I especially found the Revelations to be helpful to my understanding of the latter days.

    Letdown

    The authors of this study have been writing apologetic literature for a long time. They have honed their skills with prior work. For my money, conservative apologist Alister E. McGrath does this kind of work with greater skill and imagination. Biblical scholar and conservative Anglican Bishop N. T. Wright does a much better job with the biblical material. I think that Marcus Borg covers similar material better in his study "The Heart of Christianity."

    A must have for a new christian

    I recommend this book for the new and seasoned Christian. It breaks down somewhat complex contexts from the Bible in a way that captures the readers attention yet teaches in a meaningful way. If I could order hundreds of these to hand out for dicipleship....I would!!
