The One Hour Bible
Adam and Eve and the forbidden fruit, Jacob and the stairway to heaven, Joseph and his brothers, Samson and Delilah, David and Goliath, Jonah and the whale, the miracles and teachings of Jesus, Paul's vision on the road to Damascus, John's vision of the new Jerusalem: the Bible is full of dramatic stories that have made it the world's bestselling book, and yet few people ever get around to reading it from cover to cover.
Now, with The One Hour Bible, readers of all ages can discover its riches and gain a birds-eye view of the entire sweep of the Bible's epic story—in just sixty minutes.
"For those who've been putting aside two years in later life to read the Bible from cover to cover, the good news is: the most important bits are here."
"This book is a brilliant and inventive taster. It introduces the reader to the actual words of scripture: no paraphrases, no 'stories of', just the revealed words of God so arranged as to give a hint of the wonder of the Bible in its full dimensions."
"What an amazing concept—and why in the world hasn't it been done before? This compelling, concise, slimmed-down Scripture is a must for anyone who finds those 66 books a tad daunting. In today's busy world, this is a book for everyone's bookcase—except it won't be on there much as you'll be reading it or lending it."
