This is the best tool for using in a new believer's class, for those who are serious about studying the Bible. The presentation is logical, easy to follow and at the end of the book, you have a better understanding of the logical order and chronology of the Bible and the major events and players. It also discusses major doctrines about how to properly relate to God, self and others.
Great book!

I have bought a few books to help me understand the Bible as I am only starting to read the Bible now. This book is absolutely wonderful and the layout is superb. I can honestly say that this book is a must for all people who want to understand the greatest story ever told. Max Anders has helped me understand the Bible (which can sometimes be very complicated and difficult to read) in a whole new way. I definitely recommend this book to everyone who reads the Bible and not only to beginners

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive Overview 7 Oct 1997
By A Customer
This is a great book to get a comprehensive overview of the Bible. Gaining an understanding of the context of daily readings helps the novice scripture reader get the most from readings. Anders easy style of writing leads the reader through exercises designed to really understand God's Word. Truly faith-enriching. I look forward to more of Ander's "30 Days To . . ." series.

1.0 out of 5 stars A reader 19 Feb 2006
By C. Nordell - Published on Amazon.com
I own the 1998 edition and was crazy about it. If you are new to the Bible, the 1998 edition provided a wonderful starting point to understanding the Bible. If you were a Bible student, the 1998 edition pulled alot of information that you already knew together. I was so enthusiastic about it that I ordered several more of the 2005 edition to give away thinking that the updated version probably had some graphic updates. I was dumbfounded to find that the entire second part of the book had been completely changed!! All the gems that were there have been removed. I'll be returning these and try to find the 1998 edition!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Answer to Post-Christian era of students 14 Dec 1999
By Zach Conrad - Published on Amazon.com
I work with college students and have found that many do not know what the Bible _as a whole_ says. This book has been helpful in explaining the entire Bible in one year, especially with International Students. I strongly recommend this book if you work with students of any age, a new believer in Jesus, or for an easy way to re-frequent yourself with the Bible.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
this book is straight-forward and easy to grasp even for the beginner of Bible knowledge. Charts and tests help you to digest the material and commit many basics to memory. Just follow it, you are sure to know your Bible at the end of 30 days! Not just a title - very practical!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of it's Kind: Must Have 26 Nov 2012
By lovedrunkbliss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Have you ever wished that there was an idiots guide to the Bible that gave context to all of it's parts? The Bible is a beautiful collection of assorted types of literature but it's organization and foreignness often creates confusion. So scholars claim we live in the most biblically illiterate time in modern history. While many have theological and doctrinal opinions and views few understand the book called the Bible. 30 Days to Understanding the Bible by Max Anders is exactly the sort of "idiot proof" guide many people are looking for. Anders' uses a simple format that explains how the bible is assembled and how each parts fits within or connects to the rest of the parts. The majority of the book covers the Old Testament (due to its size) and lays out a simplistic easy to follow and retain story. Every element is broken down into smaller digestible elements which are repeated and tested throughout the chapter.

For instance:

The Old Testament is divided into it's parts.

17 Historical Books

5 Poetical Books

17 Prophetical Books

The historical books are divided into smaller eras (ie Creation, Patriarchs, Exodus, etc). Every era is linked to a picture, a central character, a geographic location, and a story line summary. The story line summaries are one liners that sum up what that era is about. The reader is able to learn piece by piece each book of the Bible as he or she explores the eras. The reader is given pictures, maps, and subdivisons that aid in understanding the bigger picture of scripture and it's events. Each chapter contains simple tests right after new information is given and the tests are repeated becoming slightly more difficult as you go in the short chapters. This creates a stair step approach to learning that build new info onto slight older info. The chapters are short and can be done for about 20 minutes once a day for 30 days.

The books covers the OT, NT, and the 10 Great Doctrines of the Bible. I'd highly recommend this to someone who doesn't understand the Old Testament, how the bible is constructed, bais doctrine, new believers, older believers looking to brush up, or anyone interested in making sense of the Bible. It's a fun hearted book and simple enough for a 10 year old but never so simple an adult couldn't glean something from it. It's a great resource for churches, small groups, or missional communities. It's denominational friendly as it is generic enough to work in a variety of churches. Lot's of free teaching material is available for free online as well.

I've personally studied the Bible most of my life and I found this book to be the best I've ever seen. I'm thinking about completing this once a year. The book is also a workbook with fill in the blank questions, maps, etc. It feels a little elementary at first but I've noticed that my bible reading has benefited from a more clear understanding of chronology and geography. I've also learned several small facts here or there that filled in gaps in my own understanding after all these years. I'm excited about this resource and would definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great biblical basics...especially helpful for younger Christians 9 May 2007
By Dan Panetti - Published on Amazon.com
As a part of the Walk Thru the Bible Ministries, this book gives the reader a general overview of the Bible and its themes, significant players and times in a very easy-to-understand and easy-to-remember format complete with pictures and charts that should be memorized as the reader finishes the book. The Old Testament is broken down into its various books (historical, poetical and prophetical) as well as its various eras (creation, patriarch, exodus, conquest, judges, kingdom, exile, return and silence) so the reader understands the flow of events from Genesis to Malachi.

The New Testament is broken down into the Gospel Era, The Church Era, the Missions Era and the Epistles. The book breaks down Biblical themes into eight subjects and then takes you through the fundamental doctrines of the faith. 30 Days to Understanding the Bible is a very easy read - excellent for a young Christian wanting to know how all 66 books of the Bible tie together.

I have the old edition of this book, but recently discovered that there is a new revised and expanded edition of the book that I just ran across and flipped through -- very impressive updates to this incredible book, now even more valuable than before! This book is a must-have for Christian parents wanting to train their children in God's Word or for any Christian looking to gain a comprehensive overview of Scripture.
