Helpful for Beginning Bible Students Feb 27, 2006
This book is helpful for Beginning Bible Students or for the Basic information of each section of the Bible. It gives an outline of the Books of the Bible including background, date of writing, and the author.
Nice for reference Aug 14, 2005
At the end of the book, there are old bible content exams which was a great reference...a great reason alone to buy the book. The overview of the books of the Bible was minimal, but helpful to use to study.
excellent resource for.... Dec 17, 1999
This book is great if you are studying for the PCUSA Bible Content exam, for it has all of the old exams and answer keys. If you can "master" all of the exams, you will pass the content exam, and maybe even learn something!
Good stuff, but.... Nov 25, 1999
The Bible quizes and outlines are excellent, but I have a problem with this book. This book suggests that people should read from the New Revised Standard Version Bible which is known as the "Gender Neutral Bible." Some liberal churches use this for text during services. It suggests reading from translations that have problems with them. I am a person that is King James only.
