So you are sitting there on the pub quiz team, and they announce a round on the Bible. How well would you fare? This book is for those who would like to get to know the Bible better – and not just for the sake of pub quizzes.
Why should we study the Bible? Jesus said at the end of the Sermon on the Mount that anyone who hears his words and obeys them has foundations in life – like a house built on a rock; but anyone who hears them and doesn’t put them into practice is like a house built on sand. We need foundations in life – especially when things like health, job and relationships go wrong.
Look at the Book helps you to get to know the Bible and build those foundations. Through 24 chapters, twelve chapters each on the Old and the New Testaments, street lamps will be installed at regular intervals in order to light up the whole street, and your knowledge of the Bible will grow. Suitable for those with a desire to know more about the Bible in shorter bursts, the chapters can be read in any order, with helpful hints included throughout. At the end of each chapter there is suggested reading for those who haven’t the time to read the whole of the book under discussion.
