Clear, Direct & Simple --- But Not Simplistic May 19, 2010
This is an excellent adaptation of Jim George's earlier work for adults.
Here the concepts and key events of the Bible are pared to their "bare bones" --- so helpful in avoiding distraction and getting to the heart of the message.
This young adult version reflects simpler language and a refinement of an already excellent approach in the previous work. Buy either one; buy both.
Clear, direct and simple without being simplistic. Jim George is a gifted writer with an essence for straight talk and honest answers.

Excellent Bible Resource Sep 4, 2009
This book is an excellent source for overview information about each book of the bible. I am a 7th grade Bible teacher and I am using this to introduce the students to each book of the Old Testament before we have our lesson on the book.
It gives not only a great overview, but there is also a quick reference to 'big' events that took place in the book as well as thought provoking questions for life application.
An excellent resource.
There is also a book for adults. I have both of them and there is very little difference between the two. If you have one, there is no real need to get the other one.
