The Bible is the inspired Word of God and has transformed millions of people, yet sometimes it can be a difficult book to understand. The culture in which the Bible was written is so different from our own that at times we struggle to understand what it means or how it is relevant to our modern lives. In A Brief Survey of the Bible, John Walton, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, and Mark Strauss, professor of New Testament at Bethel Seminary San Diego, address this problem by giving you the background and context you need to successfully understand even the difficult parts of the Word of God. Walton and Strauss give you an overview of the key themes of the major books in the Bible, show what the stories and teachings meant to the people at the time, and explain how the inspired words of the biblical authors apply to your own life today.
