Very good summary and introduction to the various books in the Bible, as well as a brief mention of the Apocrypha. Useful for anyone interested in getting a solid overview of the Bible. Additionally helpful for those who are familiar with the Bible but would like to see the history clearly laid out in a way that makes it easier to remember and understand how different events in the scriptures are interconnected.

I use this when I have a question or start a new Sunday school lesson. It gives an historical context, timeline, outline, plot, starring rolls, location, key texts, and interpretation. A great book to have on your religion shelf.

Clear, concise summaries of each book of the Bible. Provides objective coverage of authors, time periods, 'hot button' issues (e.g., predestination), end times prophecies, and more. Highly recommended as a companion to 'bible-in-a-year' volume.

The Ultimate Bible "Cliffs Notes". A great way to keep yourself on track if you are reading the Bible. Not always factually or scholarly accurate, but a handy resource.
