Top Highlights

“The examples could be multiplied, but they have in common a deep respect for the Scriptures, and the power of the Holy Spirit to go between the text of the Scriptures and the text of the life of the hearers. The primary task of the communicator is to get out of the way of the Bible, and certainly not to defend it! It will do its own work if, and only if, it is allowed to speak.” (Page 21)

“The purpose of the Bible is to show us who God is, what God is like and what he has done. As we read its words we understand more of what God in his love requires from us.” (Page 22)

This well-produced, easy-to-read Bible compendium is a basic book for all would-be disciples of Jesus Christ.

J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia

I commend this book with enthusiasm. Great trouble has been taken over its production. It contains accurate information, which is presented in a balanced and readable form.

—John R. W. Stott, John Stott Ministries

It will meet a great need and give clear insight into the Bible’s teaching.

—Billy Graham, Christian Evangelist
