Great book to read if you find the bible a little daunting
on 6 June 2005
I've recently been exploring my faith a lot more - doing the Alpha course and reading faith building materials. I've had several crack at trying to read the bible and always fail pretty early on - the meaning doesn't get through and the text can be hard to stick with. However .... enter the 'Street Bible' - this really got the meaning across to me - had me hooked, interested and genuinely wanting to read more - stuck with it every day and finished it a week or two ago - can see myself coming back to this to read it through again - something I can rarely do with any book. If you want to get a taste of the bible and have struggled like myself with the text itself then this is the book for you. It covers the old and new testaments and although there is a lot of paraphrasing and I dare some skipping over some bits it certainly had a wonderful effect on me.
