a must have for Bible study Sep 6, 2007
This is a great book which summarizes in a concise way each book of the Bible. I especially like the clear charts summarizing each Bible book, so you can review in advance what they are about and their outline. I have bought dozens for all my Sunday School teachers, and keep one by my desk when I get ready to teach the Bible.

The Westminster Guide to the Books of the Bible is a wonderful resource for all those that are seeking a greater knowledge of the Bible. Ramsay takes a conservative approach and effectively explains the Bible, book by book, without forcing his personal beliefs down the reader's throat. He does not assume that his reader has a vast knowledge of the Bible and writes in such a way that the book can be easily understood. The author often presents the ideas of several different critical groups while bringing to light historical facts and happenings that support the most widely accepted view. With a greater understanding of ancient customs and tradition as well as an awareness of meanings lost in translation, the common atheist questions and accusations of the Bible's shortcomings are disproved or at least refuted. The Guide addresses the historic validity of the books while also assessing their theological meaning and significance to the Bible as a whole. I highly recommend this book to Christians of all denominations as well as non-Christians; blind faith is commendable in one sense, but let us not be led by ignorance. Ramsay properly states at the beginning and end of his Guide that although he hopes his book will be useful and enlightening, there is no substitute for actually reading the Bible itself.
