Do you want to understand the Bible? Feb 28, 2007
Then buy this book! I've had this book (and Jensen's Survey of the New Testament) for over 15 years. I have used them both to help guide me in my study of dozens of Bible books, and they have been a huge help in my spiritual growth. I love them so much I am now going through the Gospel of John with my teenage boys, using Jensen's New Testament book as a guide. Both the boys and I are loving it. In fact, I ordered them each their own copy to help them start their own Christian libraries.
In your study of a Bible book, Jensen will guide you first through an overview of the entire book so you can see the big picture, of the book itself, and of the book's place in the entire Bible. This has been very helpful in demystifying the Old Testament for me. Then he takes you through several main topics within the book, so you can focus on the details. He also has very insightful ideas for application and further study.
