This is recommended reading for the CCRS course and, in my opinion, a good and simply written introduction to the Old Testament. It is written is a very approachable style and mentions some of the confusing contradictory stuff, e.g. when a person's name randomly changes in the same sentence and ur wondering whether it's just you thinking, 'eh?' It doesn't feel like it's written from a strong religious standpoint; issues are covered for the good stuff they're trying to promote, yet nothing's take too literally. So not offensive or pompous.
