5.0 out of 5 stars Great Study Guide Jan. 2 2002
How to Get Into the Bible is a wonderfully laid out book that really brings the messages of the Bible home. Each book of the Bible is reviewed. Timelines and maps of the surrounding areas, found in the first page or so of each review, help the reader keep straight complicated chronological and geographical data. Also at the end of each review is the encore section. This tells the reader where they can find similar material in other books of the Bible.
I really liked the way the book is set-up. I enjoyed the shaded boxes, which highlight famous lines and ask, "did you know" questions about each book of the Bible. The section titled, How We Got Our Bible, is helpful. That is followed by a section highlighting the main points of Bible. This can help those who may not be familiar with many Bible stories. Moreover it serves as a good overview.
This book is great because it is written for a variety of readers from different age groups. Teenagers on up could enjoy this book. You can choose to use the book as a reference book, read it as novel, or just read each review and then read the accompany book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful Feb. 11 2001
By RigelK
This book is an excellent companion book for Bible study. It's a great startup book for someone who's new to the Bible and can also serve as a handy quick reference for someone already familiar with the material.
Each book of the Bible is addressed in terms of plot, main characters, the book's relationship to other Bible stories, and more. It's like a well fleshed out study outline in many ways. What I particularly liked is that even the very short books of the Bible are given equal treatment. You'll get ample material about 1 Peter, Micah, Obadiah, and other small books along with the big boys like Isaiah and John.
Time lines help you keep a mental picture of what's going on around the events of each book. Where multiple opinions and theories abound, the authors introduce the reader to a variety of interpretations and the merits of each.
While many of the author asides and comments may prove uncomfortably liberal for evangelicals or fundamentalists, I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in digesting the Bible. It's entertaining and captivating enough to read straight through like a novel, educational enough to use as a supporting study text, and consistantly useful enough to keep it on your reference bookshelves.

5.0 out of 5 stars How To Get Into The Bible June 28 2000
I am a teacher at a Christian School and we used this book for our Bible Literature class this year. I designed a curriculum using this book for our 9th grade students. It was a huge success! The "Big Scenes" at the end of each chapter keyed in on the main stories of each book. The life-like pictures helped the kids remember them for testing. Each chapter highlights the most important aspects to understanding each book of the Bible. I was very pleased with the way the information was gathered. Except for a few discrepancies in dates or historical info., this book is useful(As long as one reads the Bible along with this resource checking for accruacy according to God's Word!)Great resource book!

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellant bible companion March 8 1999
"How to get into the Bible" by Stephen M. Miller is a well balanced handbook of summarized text, illustrations, maps and historical time graphs. It has been the best overview and companion to the "Big-Book" that I have ever encountered. It really placed me into a position of understanding the Bible more than I have ever enjoyed before. The contemporary format of this book is interesting and novel. I thought so much of this book that I bought a second copy to loan out to my Christian friends. It is worth far more than double the price I paid

5.0 out of 5 stars The sequel is great, too. Nov. 14 2003
By A Customer
This is a really good intro to the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Clear, simple, and biblically solid.
But I like the sequel even better because it not only gives you the short course on each book in the Bible, it helps you put it to practice.
The first book--How to Get into the Bible--is history. The second book--How to Get the Bible into My Life--is history applied to our lives today.
Both are helpful, well-written, and insightful.
