Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible for Blockheads---Revised Edition: A User-Friendly Look at the Good Book?

Love it!  May 26, 2010
This book is so great for the person who is just checking out how things work in the bible: the order of books, who is who, etc. It is also great for those who just want a snap shot of what is going on, who is doing what and what it means. I use it in bible study with college girls. I love it!!!
 
Really great bible book.  May 16, 2003
This book has a great layout, with little columns off to the side featuring bits of extra info. The print is large and the layout is uncluttered, so even though there's lots of ground to cover, you can skim thru without getting a headache. Each chapter has a good amount of information, not too much to bore the reader and not too little to make it not worth reading. Written in a carefree but informative style.
 
Simple but not Simplistic  Jan 21, 2000
With a title like "Bible for Blockheads," you might tend to think this book is a bit too dumbed down for all but the totally biblically illiterate. And though it's true that a newcomer to the Bible can immediately profit from this book, it has much more to offer than first meets the eye.

Connelly is sensitive to the historical and literary context of each book, letting it speak for itself and address the original audience's concerns, rather than simply supporting church dogma. Sure, it has cute pictures and avoids technical theological language, but behind its simplicity lies a rather profound understanding of the nature and purpose of a biblical text.

A refreshingly straightforward everyman's guide to the Bible.

 
Covers Three Big Bases  Dec 22, 1999
Accurate, clear and enjoyable. Three ingredients necessary for cutting through the fog of yesteryear's grandiloquent, ho-hum reference works.

Connelly offers a general overview of each Bible book and sets a context allowing the passage to make sense. Like, the passage MAKES SENSE because we know who, what, why and where! Doug provides the skeleton on which the story comes to life revealing the intended meaning of the authors to farmers, kings and Internet surfers.

In covering three huge bases, Connelly hits a home run!
