I loved the way Guthrie pulled each chapter off without a lot of fluff, straightforward the way I like it. He presents facts, scripture, and ties it all together. This isn’t a sit down and read it through in an afternoon kind of read. More like a devotional, or Bible study aid than anything. However, the chapters are chock full of information so you walk away feeling like you’ve learned a lot (a good thing!).
The book could be a good Bible introduction for anyone seeking to read the Bible through in a year or two. It could also serve as the starting point for a sermon series moving a congregation through the entire Bible – a dream of mine, but unlikely to occur given my current congregation. content is too brief to serve as a Bible Introduction text in a College or Seminary course, but might serve that purpose well in a Sunday School or small group Bible Study.
