Item description for The Everything Bible Book: From Genesis to Revelation, All You Need to Understand the Old and New Testaments (Everything Series) by John Trigilio & Kenneth Brighenti...
For centuries, the Bible has served as a moral compass and a source of God's word. Packed with stories of mystery, intrigue, and inspiration, the Bible is also valued as sacred literature. Unfortunately, disjointed narratives, confusing language, and an innumerable cast of characters can make reading the Bible a challenge for many people.
The Everything Bible Book is a lucid and richly detailed guide to the history, literature, stories, parables, and personalities of both the Old and New Testaments. From Genesis to Revelations, Abraham to Paul, this book covers the various theories on the origins of the Bible, compares the different editions, and describes in detail the Bible's culture and times.
This highly accessible book also includes information on:
*All the books of the Bible and their content *The various translations and versions *Interpretations of the Bible through the ages *Comparisons of the gospels *A book-by-book reading plan
Filled with easy-to-follow information and fascinating historical perspective, The Everything Bible Book is the perfect resource for anyone who wants to unravel and understand the complex mysteries of the Good Book but is intimidated by the prospect.

Everything Bible Book Jul 13, 2008
I find this book excellent. So well written and so easy to understand and a great help in learning and understanding the Bible.
Keep them coming Father Trigilio and Father Brighenti!! May 19, 2005
These two authors obviously have a knack for writing books explaining both Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition in an easy to understand format! This book, together with their first book "Catholicism For Dummies", must be on your bookshelf as your "go to" reference materials. I can't wait to receive their third entree titled "Women in the Bible For Dummies"! I have had it on order since December when it was first announced. If their first two books are any indication, "Women in the Bible For Dummies" promises to be a great success too!
PERFECT COMPANION May 20, 2004
I found 'The Everything Bible Book' to be the perfect companion to 'Catholicism For Dummies'. Both of these succinctly and accurately explain the enormous wealth, depth and content of Sacred Scripture and Divine Revelation in general. Both of these gems are well written, informative but do not intimidate with overly technical language. The authors obviously do not need to 'show off' by using obscure polysyllabic words. They do make sophisticated biblical theology approachable and understandable to the layman and non-expert.
Not very good... May 4, 2004
I could only read an hour of this. I always hate doing this to my own brethren. Poorly written, wordy, and dry.
Another Triumph for Trigilio and Brighenti Feb 22, 2004
Following the success of their terrific "Catholicism for Dummies" last year, this new volume by Fathers Trigilio and Brighenti explains the history, development, and wisdom of the written Word of God.
Written for all Christians, "The Everything Bible Book" adopts a user-friendly format similar to that of the authors' "Dummies" book, providing a sweeping overview of all seventy three books of the Bible. Yet despite its sweep and scope, the content isn't "dumbed-down" and the reader never feels short-changed.
Key concepts like the senses of Scripture, the nature of revelation and the importance of salvation history provide a proper context for understanding Scripture.
The book leaves readers hoping the authors will continue their collaboration and wondering which topic they will tackle next. (My suggestion is a work of apologetics under the working title "Does Vatican II *really* teach that?", but we'll have to wait and see.)
