Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Like most of the Idiot's series, this guide to the Bible is user-friendly. Key terms are defined, and the authors make repeated attempts to illustrate every complex point, down to explanations of literary techniques used. However, they often do so by incorporating cheesy puns and references to ephemeral pop culture, such as cartoons. As a result, this is a dogmatic explanation of the Bible, but one that mostly lacks dignity. John Ratzenberger's narration fits this text perfectly, switching from a joking tone to a judgmental quality when making pronouncements about doctrine. The result is a schizophrenic listening experience."

    Not for Idiots, not just for Christians, but for everyone who wants to be Biblicaly literate and enjoy the process of becoming so.

    Many times I have set out to read the Bible from cover to cover. I almost always got bogged down in Deuteromony.

    A basic knowledge of the Bible is necessary to be culurally literate. In everyday language, biblical phrases and stories abound. This book makes it possible for people of all ages and faiths to read and enjoy the essence of the Bible. It reads like a narrative but adds litte asides of interesting cultural, linguistic or geographical tidbits tha enhance the story.

    I particularly enjoy the section titles that seem to capture the key point of the story in a few clever and sometimes delightfully sarcastic words. This alone keeps the reader going.

    Although some parts of the Bible are not included in the narraive, they are not key to understanding the message and the writer points to them for those who want to pursue more thorough study.

    The writer includes a preview and a "key points to remember" for each section. This is a very helpful technique. The author did an exellent job of picking out the essential learnings so that the reader is not overwhelmed. Kind of like the study guide for an imaginary test.

    This book can be used as a stand alone, or read alongside the Bible itself. It is not a translation of Biblial text, nor is it intended to be a study guide. It is not a paraphrase. It is more of a story of the stories of the Bible. Therefore it is a perfect venue for seasoned Bible study veterans who want to relax and take a bird's eye view. It is also suitable for readers who want to know about the Bible as literature and might even be great tool for a college literature class. Those who embrace Christianity as their faith but who are somtimes embarrased by lack of knowledge of the Bible might find this to be a great resource. Young people would find it easy reading while the tongue-in-cheek remarks and witty subtitles make it interesting. I highly recommend this book to people of all faiths and all ages.
