Moses' world would hardly be recognizable today. David and Solomon, Isaiah and Nehemiah, Peter and Paul...all the biblical authors wrote to people whose mind-sets were very different from readers' today. Add to that the immensity of the Bible story...no wonder the Scriptures can be difficult to understand!

Bible scholar Douglas Jacoby has taught Bible survey courses for more than 25 years, bridging the gulf between the biblical world and the twenty-first century. He uses clear, easy-to-understand language to explain the big picture of the Bible and show how the pieces fit together. Among the many compelling issues covered, readers will discover...

  • the basic chronological outline of the Bible
  • the most important themes of the Old and New Testaments
  • how the Bible relates to a twenty-first-century worldview

Perfect for personal or group use, this survey removes many of the barriers that keep people from understanding and enjoying the Bible.

Review:

"International speaker, debater and Christian apologist Dr. Douglas Jacoby has provided a valuable tool for laypeople with this introduction to reading the Bible. Students of the Bible understand that a historical background to biblical times is necessary for one to understand the Bible accurately. And Dr. Jacoby delivers the goods in an easily accessible format, serving the reader as a warm and interesting tour guide into the past. I wish I had this book as a college student!"
Michael R. Licona, Ph.D, author of The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach
