Picking up the Bible and beginning to read can be intimidating to anyone. Ryken's Bible Handbook is a book that can be helpful as it can be a guide for the reader before diving into the Bible.
This book provides background information on each book of the Bible and takes a literary approach with each book. Maps and charts are also included and also a topical guide. There is also a reading guide for those who wish to read the entire Bible in a year. This book is an invaluable tool for anyone who is just beginning to read the Bible or for anyone who is seeking for a deeper understanding of the many stories, truths and passages in the Bible.
Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of the book.
