Did you ever start to read the Bible and then give up? If so, this Get a Grip approach could help you get into the Word with confidence.
Get a Grip-on the Bible is designed to provide enough information to help you familiarize yourself with each book but not so much that you get overwhelmed. For each book covered, author Jerry L. Burton discusses who wrote it, why and when it was written, and the intended audience. He also explores the culture and history of the time, offering additional context. He also shares a few key narratives in a storytelling format, exploring key doctrines that appear consistently throughout the Bible. Using this method, you'll soon have confidence in your ability to study and understand God's Word.
Formatted for use by Sunday school classes, small-group Bible studies, and individuals, this study guide presents a comfortable way of learning the basics of the Bible.
