Very Unhappy Aug 19, 2008
I was very disappointed in it. The pericope sections are just restatements with very simplistic explanations. It didn't open up the Bible for me in any way and I can't imagine making my Sunday School class suffer through it. I recommend The Complete Idiot's Guide Bible Study for Teens -- it is much more interesting and has more information to help open up the Bible. And you don't have to be a teen. I bought this version because I couldn't imagine having adults use a teen book. But the teen book is much more interesting, with so much more information. Good luck in your search for helpful Bible resources. I'd honestly skip this one, though.
Love It Apr 9, 2008
I love this quick and easy reading reference to the Bible. It gives me the opportunity to read the Bible in conjuction with this book which makes all the diference in the world when you are such a babe in this area. I am teaching myself from this book in the hopes that my understanding of the Bible is widened Love it Love it Love it
God Bless Stella
who knew the bible was so entertaining Mar 20, 2008
I've been trying to read the bible for years but just could not get into it. This book is "the best of" the bible and actually makes it readable. And better yet, it's understandable! I love the sense of humor the writers have (of the guide not the bible itself) - I actually laughed out loud at one of the titles. This book truly does make reading the bible an enjoyable experience.
