The Quick-Start Guide to the Whole Bible (Review)
This review is for the book "The Quick-Start Guide to the Whole Bible" by Dr. William H. Marty and Dr. Boyd Seevers. I have to say, after reading this book, I think that everybody needs a copy of this book on their bookshelf. Dr. Seever begins the book by going through each book in the Old Testament and tells the setting, a summary, a bit of history, and the significance for us today. Dr. Marty goes through each book in the New Testament and uses the same outline of setting, summary and significance to explain the book.
I absolutely loved this book. The authors definitely hit the high spots of each book in the Bible. Having some historical content added really helped me understand the background of some of these books and stories that I have heard for decades. This is a book that is absolutely being added to my bookshelf. I plan on using it with my kids and our youth group at church, to help gain a background knowledge of the authors and books, and learn more about the time in which the books were written. Very valuable resource.
Thank you to Bethany House for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
