There's so much to know about the Bible! Who wrote it, and when, where, and why? What is its message? What is the foundation for its claim to be a "holy" book, the book of God? And how is it to be interpreted? These are important questions to ask whether you're reading the Bible for the first time or wishing to learn more from it than you have in the past.

Understanding the Bible has the answers. An introduction to the major themes and sections of Scripture, it offers a wealth of helpful information. Esteemed author John Stott reveals how the entire Bible fits together. He covers the geography, history, theology, authority, and interpretation of the Bible, all in this one volume. Stott's clear explanations, along with color photographs, maps, callout sections, and other features make this an indispensable reference tool.

Plumb the depths of Scripture and gain new insight into its meaning and purpose. This accessible book uncovers the answers that allow you to love the Bible more and understand it better.
