An excellent guide especially for Bible study groups Jul 8, 2007
Bestselling author J. Stephen Lang puts his religion degree to the test in The Quick-Start Beginner's Guide to the Bible, a no-nonsense, easy-to-understand resource for readers of all backgrounds who need to swiftly familiarize themselves with the basics of what the Bible is about, where it came from, and why it is relevant today. Chapters cover the history of the Bible's creation and the "authority problem" of interpretation, learning how to pray with the Bible, and much more. All the books of the Bible are summarized very succinctly in one chapter; The Quick-Start Beginner's Guide to the Bible spends the majority of its emphasis on facts about the Bible and guidance for Christian readers seeking to enrich their prayers. An excellent guide especially for Bible study groups and Christians who are relative novices to the Bible.
