"Although McGrath is not in the narrow sense a biblical scholar, it [the handbook] well expresses its author's overriding concern to commend the faith of the Bible ... The application of 61 passages is discussed in blocks set off from the main text ... These comments could provide useful starting- points for group discussions ... The handbook includes three introductory articles, admirably clear maps and other readers' help." - (The Methodist Recorder)

"More in-depth teaching on the different books of the Bible... Provides a helpful introduction to, and outline of, each book... A rounded view of the history and culture of the Bible and its characters... The author also tackles difficult questions in 60 short feature articles interspersed throughout the commentary." (Woman Alive)

"The more I read this handbook, the more impressed I was. . . [It is] well laid out, making it easy to use. Although the commentaries are rather brief they are nonetheless interesting." (Church of England Newspaper)
