The Bible is not only the world's best-selling book. For many, it's also the most intimidating. This short volume is designed for people who've tried reading it but got lost or confused; joined a Bible study group but couldn't keep up; or who have wanted to read the Bible for themselves but didn't know how to get started.
I hope Cracking the Book will also have some value for people who are already familiar with scripture. It provides an overview of the biblical narrative and introduces principles of interpretation that will facilitate small-group discussion.
