Newcomer's Guide to the Bible: Themes and Timelines by Michael C. Armour

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.

You may have thought the Bible was too complex to understand. Perhaps you have believed the Bible to be irrelevant, dry or merely a collection of antiquated rules. In A Newcomer's Guide to the Bible, you will see the Bible unfold as an exciting drama about the relationship between God and humans.

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.
