Book Review: The Whole Bible Story
The Whole Bible Story: Everything That Happens in the Bible in Plain English
By Dr William H. Marty
Bethany House, 2011
English, 300 pgs
Sometimes readers just want to know what happens next. Dr. William Marty presents the entire narrative of the Bible in chronological order from creation to the New Testament Church. The action moves smoothly from story to story without slowing down for law, poetry, prophecy, or instruction. The Whole Bible Story is perfect for new Christians looking to understand the overall flow of the Bible or seasoned believers wanting a refresher course. It can be read straight through or used as a reference tool for better understanding of specific biblical events.
I love this. This is so easy to read and understand. It can be overwhelming to try to read the Bible and this will help more people who have trouble with it. It's also simple enough to read to children. I'm teaching my son from it and he gets the story a lot better with this. The chapter summaries are good review sections and each chapter has a main character and setting information to help you understand what's going on and "where" you are at that point.
I received a copy of the book for review purposes. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
