Have you ever wondered what is in the Bible? Did you know that within the Bible, there is an overall plan that has a beginning and an end, commonly referred to as "God's plan of salvation?" The purpose of this summary is to give the reader a broad view of what is in the Bible, and it can be read in one sitting!
Did you know that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time? Maybe you grew up with a family Bible on a coffee table, but you never looked inside the cover. It's not unusual for people to begin reading the Bible--and give up before they get halfway through Genesis! That's why A Summary of the Bible was written. Its purpose is to give the reader a broad view of what is in the Bible, readable in only one sitting!
Maybe you are already a student of the Bible and you've put your faith and trust in God's plan of salvation. If so, A Summary of the Bible is a way to introduce God's Word to people who have never owned a Bible or have found trying to read it to be intimidating. As the scripture says in the book of Isaiah, "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news" (Isaiah 52:7 ESV).
