The IVP Introduction to the Bible PBBy: Philip Johnston
Reading the Bible is meant to be exciting, but for many of us the reality falls short of the ideal. We try to study it, but cannot see how it all fits together, or understand the ancient context and unfamiliar concepts. And what on earth does it mean for us now? Perhaps we long for a guide to help us in our reading- one that will not take longer to read than the Bible itself! This book is a reference tool specifically designed to provide the key information we need to study the Bible effectively. Written by experts in biblical studies, Otis reliable and rigorous, but also concise and accessible.
