This book was just what I needed. It's always been hard for me to read the Bible and understand the message. With this book, I now have what I need to understand the Bible. There is a chapter for each book of the Bible. Each chapter has a section that lays out who wrote the book when it was written, where the setting took place and the main point. It's a great book to help understand the Word! I would highly recommend it to everyone!

I was not raised in a religious household, nor was I taught about religion in any way shape or form. I needed somewhere to begin, other than the bible since it's difficult to read by myself, and it's very intimidating. I found this book walking through the aisles at Barnes & Noble, and I it turned out to be very useful! The visuals, and design are very clean and appealing. The writing is straight forward and simple, and the content is great. It really gave me somewhere to begin exposing myself to the different stories in the bible, and how everything is broken down. He highlights some main points, and his timelines are very easy to follow. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is trying to learn.

This book is exactly what the title says: A complete guide to the Bible. Miller once again shows his strong intellect. This book offers amazing photographic illustations that are simply amazing, and the book is very well written and explained in a very understanding format.

Stephen M. Miller keeps a streak alive of writing some of the most innovative, colorful, and basic guides available for Bible study. The Complete Guide to the Bible presents book by book synopses introduced by Main Point, Writer, Date, Location from Genesis through Revelation. The concept and the writing are guided by the author's imperative: 'I didn't write this for folks who understand Christian jargon. I wrote it for curious people who have more questions about the Bible than answers.' Thus we find manna and quail that sustained the Jews in the wilderness described as 'fast food from heaven,' the tabernacle as a 'mobile worship center,' the Psalms as 'singing the blues for God,' among many other descriptions and concepts using modern language from daily life. Throughout one finds fascinating details about Bible times, an abundance of beautiful artwork, numerous cross references and a magnificent index. While aimed at the Bible study novice, I predict that the more experienced purchasing this volume for beginner friends and loved ones will become so taken when browsing before gift wrapping that they will add a copy to their own libraries. There is plenty of substance here for Bible students at all levels.
