Summary

You don't have to be a scholar to study Scripture. Still, with sixty-six books and numerous writers from various historical times, the Bible can be intimidating to both new and seasoned Christians. But it doesn't have to be this way. The Baker Pocket Guide to the Bible goes through the Bible book by book to offer a nonconfrontational, accessible overview of the biblical text. In a down-to-earth style, O'Donnell gives readers a greater understanding of the context, history, and meaning of Scripture by highlighting the key themes, verses, and passages in each book. Because of its convenient size, The Baker Pocket Guide to the Bible is perfect for use in small groups, as a quick reference guide, or for anyone wanting to take a closer look at Scripture.
