Get this book. An essential part of any Christians library. Fee & Stuart are excellent writers and with this book they have laid out key information for every book of the Bible. Covering historical background, literary points, and structural overview of each book. My favourite bits are where they give pointers of what to look out for - a "how to read" section, this helps guide my reading - aiming in the right direction but means I am still left to discover God's truth for myself. Wonderful!

This is an excellent book that I'd recommend every Christian read. Not only will it take you through the Bible, but it will help you develop a life long love for God and his ways.

The book is well laid out with very helpful tips on how to get the best out of your Bible reading. Well worth the price and the time investment reading it.

This book is not just an overview of Bible books, but an introduction to the different styles of writing in the Bible. It reminds the reader that the Bible was not written in a vacuum but in historic and cultural settings. Read this book alongside your Bible and the Bible will become new to you.

for anyone who wants to understand the Bible in a easy and challanging way this is for you. It takes you book by book giving themes, information and then suggestions for questions you may wish to consider to help with your understanding.

You don't have to be 'religious' either as it is light enough make help it connect without ramming it down your throat - so to speak.

So if you have ever wondered what 'all the fuss is about' then this book will help. Get the book, get a bible and head off into a new world of understanding.

Good book. A good tool about how to study the Bible. It talks about different kind of version, explaining about the translation issues and then talks about different types of literature inside the bible and how to study and interpret it. THe author uses a really clear language, understandable for beginners, so you do not have to be an scholar to read it. I found it useful.

As an introduction to each book of the Bible this is just about perfect in what it sets out to do. Each book is very thoroughly introduced in a very clear and non academic way. If you're looking for the kind of detail as to what kind of Greek or Hebrew is used in the text, then you properly need something a bit more technical and academic. But if you're looking to just understand the background to the books, for example, what kind and literature the book is, an outlined to the book etc, then this is ideal. I was introduced to it when I was doing a Bible overview early on at college as my lecturer said it was good book to have one one's bookshelf as it would continue to be useful. He was right, it certainly is useful when wants to get the background to anything one is preaching or for personal study.

A great companion for daily study of the Word. Read it as you read the scriptures to give great background in a minimum of time commitment.
