Reviews - What do customers think about About the Bible: Short Answers to Big Questions (Exploring Christian Faith)?

Quick and to the point  Aug 4, 2008
I think that ANY person should get a copy of this book before they try to read the Bible. You need to understand some very important things about what the Bible IS and ISN'T. "About the Bible" is meant to be a very short read explaining some of the most basic and important questions that any reader has or should ask before they venture into the Bible of their choice.
