Reviews - What do customers think about The Invitation: A Simple Guide to the Bible?
the invitation Mar 26, 2008
This book is the same material that is in some editions of The Message. If you have such an edition with these introductions by Peterson to the books of the Bible, you won't need this book. It would make a good companion to The Message if the edition you are using does not have these introductions in it.
