About the Author:

James S. Bell Jr. is the owner of Whitestone Communications and has served as executive editor of Moody Press and director of religious publishing at Doubleday. He is co-author of The Complete Idiot’s Guides to the Bible, the Book of Revelation, and the Reformation and Protestantism. He also serves as editor of the Christian Family Guide series from Alpha Books.


Stan Campbell has been a full-time writer in Christian publishing for 10 years and in a church ministry for 15 years. Among his almost three dozen books are an eight-book through-the-Bible series and other Bible-related books for teenagers and adults.

From AudioFile:

Like most of the Idiot's series, this guide to the Bible is user-friendly. Key terms are defined, and the authors make repeated attempts to illustrate every complex point, down to explanations of literary techniques used. However, they often do so by incorporating cheesy puns and references to ephemeral pop culture, such as cartoons. As a result, this is a dogmatic explanation of the Bible, but one that mostly lacks dignity. John Ratzenberger's narration fits this text perfectly, switching from a joking tone to a judgmental quality when making pronouncements about doctrine. The result is a schizophrenic listening experience. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
