Whether you've never cracked the Bible open, but always wanted to learn a bit about it, or you've spent your whole life studying it personally, this workbook-styled title will be a positive addition to your life:

I was excited for the opportunity to review this book -- I knew it would be the perfect thing to jump-start my devotional time in the new year!

Although the subject matter in this book wasn't new to me, I figured that I'd enjoy a little refresher on the Bible's key people, events and doctrines and when I saw that the pages were set up like a workbook, I knew I'd enjoy working through them over the course of the month.

Well, I'm halfway through it and it has turned out to be all that I'd hoped for and more.

This book includes a ton of helpful tools, like this timeline of the New Testament

Author Max Anders is not only the author of over 25 books, a professor at the college and seminary level and a veteran pastor, but he was also one of the original team members with Walk Thru the Bible Ministries.

I went through the Walk Thru the Bible Old Testament seminar over 20 years ago and it remains one of the best biblical learning experiences I have ever had, so I was excited to see how this book measured up to those expectations.

It was great.

Not only are there maps presenting information, but loads of maps for you to fill out and further increase your geographical awareness, as well!

I loved how the information was presented in outline form and its repetitive nature helped to solidify the facts as they built upon each other day by day.

This book provides so many opportunities for you to solidify your new knowledge. Reviews are scattered throughout the chapters and each section concludes with a "self-test" to remind you of all the key points.

Some of the book's other features include:

  • An "Arc of Bible History" to help you visualize the Bible's overarching themes

  • The "Story of the Bible" summarizing Genesis through Revelation in one handy little table

  • The core beliefs of the Christian faith, focusing on the teachings that have united Christians for the last 2,000 years

  • Bonus content, like a comparison of the four Gospels, Messianic prophesies, the Bible's different literary forms and more that have been added in to this 30th Anniversary Edition

  • A nanosummary of the Bible, helping you to understand it in only 3,000 words
