THE BIBLE CRASH COURSE FOR THE SUNDAY SCHOOL DROPOUT by Robyn Downey

You may not be able to explain it in 500 words or less but THE BIBLE CRASH COURSE FOR THE SUNDAY SCHOOL DROPOUT  does explain Genesis to Revelations very well in 84 pages (according to my ebook copy).

More than a “crash course” this is very easy to read understandable review of the Bible from Genesis to Revelations. Without getting the reader bogged down in detail the author, Robyn Downey, explains what is in the sixty-six books we know as the Bible.

One pieces of information presented, I wish someone had told me the first time I read the Bible, was: the Bible is not written in chronological order. Knowing how confusing it was for me, I think it is important to know. I also thought it was good that there was a short answer as to why certain people, such as Rahab, were mentioned.

What makes this book good for small groups is the discussion questions provided at the end of each chapter.

I know the title of this book is; THE BIBLE CRASH COURSE FOR THE SUNDAY SCHOOL DROPOUT but I would suggest that this is a great book to read BEFORE you read your Bible from Genesis to Revaluations whether you are a Sunday school drop out or not. But for the first time a person is going to read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation I would say this is a must get book. As the author said:  “Once you’ve mastered this, you’ll be able to read, study, and discuss the Bible on your own with more confidence.” Absolutely! This book really does help make the Bible make sense.   —written by Marsha L F Randolph
