Overview

It is filled with action, romance, terror, adventure, comedy and so much more. It also boasts something no other book can: It is the means of communication between God and man. No other book in history has shaped lives and cultures more than the Bible.

Whether you are "a newcomer" to the Bible, or a veteran Bible student, A Newcomer's Guide to the Bible will quickly become a valuable resource. Michael Armour helps the reader to move beyond the perceived complexities of the Bible to discover that God has chosen to communicate in an understandable and life-changing way.
