A Quick Overview of the Bible

Full Product Description

Moses’ world would hardly be recognizable today. David and Solomon, Isaiah and Nehemiah, Peter and Paul... all the biblical authors wrote to people whose mind-sets were very different from readers’ today. Add to that the immensity of the Bible story... no wonder the Scriptures can be difficult to understand!

Bible scholar Douglas Jacoby has taught Bible survey courses for more than 25 years, bridging the gulf between the biblical world and the twenty-first century. He uses clear, easy-to-understand language to explain the big picture of the Bible and show how the pieces fit together.

Among the many compelling issues covered, readers will discover...
- the basic chronological outline of the Bible
- the most important themes of the Old and New Testaments
- how the Bible relates to a twenty-first-century worldview

Perfect for personal or group use, this survey removes many of the barriers that keep people from understanding and enjoying the Bible.

A Quick Overview of the Bible by Douglas A Jacoby was published by Harvest House in March 2012 and is our 18671st best seller. The ISBN for A Quick Overview of the Bible is 9780736944243.

For instance, does he think the church is the modern Israel, or that the Israel on our maps today is what the Bible was predicting would come to pass? Thanks

A:Hi, WE. Thanks for your question about 'A Quick Overview of the Bible' by Douglas A. Jacoby. This book is a brief survey of the Bible's basic chronology, the key themes and ideas of the Old and New Testaments and how the Bible in its historical, cultural and geographical context compares and contrasts with those same aspects of our world in the twenty-first century. For an understanding of the author's personal view, I would recommend consulting Dr Jacoby's own website at www.douglasjacoby.com where he hosts a blog and an 'ask Dr. J' questions and answers forum. Yours, Les
