“I don’t read the Bible, because it is too long and complicated.”
That’s true. It is very long and very complicated. Not surprising since it took over a thousand years to write by dozens of authors.
Bible in Brief offers a simple way to explore the Bible, reading a chapter a day and responding to daily questions, either in writing or online. There are notes explaining various words and expressions e.g. what “Christ” means, plus maps, archaeological drawings and several “Bonus Features”. Also, there are six selections of writing from the surrounding cultures, including the Babylonian myths and Jewish rabbis at the time of Jesus.
Bible in Brief is meant for everyone who would like to know what is in the Bible, whether they are religious or not, for individuals and small groups.
