Many people want to read the Bible but they find the Bible hard to understand. It is thick and speaks to topics relating to a foreign culture from a distant past. For Bible reading to be meaningful and enjoyable, a companion reading resource is desired, that aims to facilitate comprehension of the pages of the Bible.
This book is written to meet this need. It aims to remove the obstacles to understanding the texts of the Bible by making plain their core contents. For each book of the Bible, the explanations cover the following aspects:
|| Background information
|| Main content and its focus
|| Discussion of difficult texts
|| Special attention to important narrations and passages
|| Contemporary significance
|| Cross references to other biblical texts where appropriate
This book is written in plain everyday English. The explanations are consistent with the biblical texts. It aims to respect the truthfulness and authority of God's Bible.
