  • An entry-level overview of the Bible, which presupposes no specialized knowledge of the Bible or religion, this accessible guide emphasizes truly experiencing the Bible rather than just studying it. Written in a warm and inviting tone by a prominent biblical scholar, the handbook answers many questions, such as What is the Bible, and how did it come to be? How do you recognize a true prophet? and Which Bible should I choose? Arranged according to the books of the Bible, this comprehensive introduction includes chapters on the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, and the Letters as well as appendices, a glossary, and resources for further study.
