What others have said:

'Exactly what we've been looking for in our adult confirmation and baptism course'

'The approach to the Old Testament in particular is one that should help many people who find it bewildering and hard to accept as the word of God'

'An excellent publication'

'It is rare to find a book that gives an overview of the Bible as the whole Bible, but one of the great advantages of this book is its brevity'

“Brief but not shallow”

An excellent overview to the Bible suitable for those who have read the Bible for years or are newer to the faith. Brilliant.
