About the Author:

Dr. Ray Lubeck is a Professor of Bible at Multnomah University in Portland, Oregon. He hold degrees from Multnomah (BS), Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (MA), and a DTh from the University of South Africa, with post-graduate studies at Regent College and Jerusalem University College. Dr. Lubeck's goal in this book is both to make Bible reading inviting and understandable for "normal people," as well as helping readers to relate its truths to their own lives and contemporary culture.

Review:

There were many places that I resonate with Lubeck's comments and explanations. He encourages readers to recapture, cultivate, and embrace a sense of "childlike wonder of the world around us, including the world of the Bible." His illustrations and short stories are used effectively throughout the book to reinforce the points being emphasized, [It] rekindled my personal desire to know and value the words of the world's most remarkable book. --J. Carl Laney, Western Seminary
