The Bible is widely considered to be the most profound collection of books in all of history, and it includes messages and stories that are still referenced today in the secular world. But it's long, complicated, hard to read, and not organized in chronological order.

In The Short Bible, author Dr. Peter Bylsma offers basic facts about the Bible, discusses the development of the modern Bible, and reviews its themes. He summarizes all the books of the Old and New Testaments in 25 short, easy-to-read chapters, capturing the epic stories, characters, and main ideas. Structured like a modern book, it also includes historical and geographical facts to help clarify the context of the events.

The Short Bible is appropriate for those who are already familiar with the Bible, those who want to better understand its overall themes, and those who simply want to know the fascinating stories and messages of the most read book of all time.
