    I’m disappointed because on the surface, this book seemed to be exactly what I wanted: a very basic explanation and analysis of the Bible in chronological order.

    I originally ordered to read through to make sure appropriate for husband who is just starting to read The Bible...I learned so many new things in easy way. Highly recommend!

    I love this book! I have used it with my kids, and friends, and even strangers. I don't care what people say about the "Dummies" books, because if it helps people get closer to God, then it's doing it's purpose.

    Whether you are a believer or not, this warm, human and often humorous look at the bible in its various versions is a wonderful overview. From the bible's message have sprung three major world religions, countless literary works and even a few decent movies and television programs - and all of that is covered in "The Bible For Dummies." This cleverly-composed work can either be read in order, from cover to cover, or by choosing chapters in a more or less random order. It's great to see such a thoughtfully-written and thought-provoking book about The Good Book.

    Explains what you are reading in the Bible. I read it through once and will use it as reference when I read my KJV Bible.

    If you thought you knew the Bible you are wrong! This book brings the Bible to life. I am a religious studies minor and a Christian. Every one of faith should read this. It is accurate and has a bunch of humor in it while proving its point. It shows how much the old testament and New testament are connected and it blew me away! I implore you to read this!

    The author's wit and knowledge helped me understand the old testament so much better. They made a difficult task enjoyable and informative.

    This book was purchased for my sister-in-law, who loves to read the Bible but finds it difficult to understand. My husband and I each have a copy and have found it to be of great assistance in helping us to understand who wrote various parts of the Bible and what the jist is. The Bible for Dummies is a must for those wishing to reach a better understanding of the most valuable book every published--the Bible.
