…judged by the Evangelical Christian Publisher’s Association as one of the top five Bible study books in the nation.

This is the commentary edition of How to Get Into the Bible–the text without the illustrations.

Everyday Understanding is a fast-paced, action-packed, scene-driven look at the main characters, stories, and teachings of all 66 books in the Bible.

Tag-teaming with the reader-friendly Contemporary English Version, this book helps even newcomers to the Bible get on board quickly.

Everyday Understandinglets you start anywhere in the Bible and understand it. There’s no tripping over religious jargon. You’ll quickly discover why the Bible is the most engaging book ever written. You’ll discover how real to life and surprisingly relevant it is to your life.

Everyday Understanding shows you the broad, sweeping panorama of the biblical story. It takes you book by book from Genesis to Revelation, adding informative features such as:

  • Big Scenes, the main events in the Bible
  • Starring Roles, a look at the leading characters
  • Plot, the story in a nutshell
  • What to Look For, the crucial insights you don’t want to miss
  • Famous Lines, phrases you may already know, but didn’t know they came from the Bible
  • Bible Timelines, happenings in the Bible world and the rest of the world

I fell in love with it from the moment I opened it. Not being a great reader myself I needed help with getting into the Bible. This book I believe was God-sent.

I am a teacher at a Christian School and we used this book for our Bible Literature class this year. I designed a curriculum using this book for our 9th grade students. It was a huge success!
