"The Whole Bible Story" by Dr. William H. Marty
I found this book a little hard to read because I love to read my Bible, and at times I thought the language here was too plain, too simplistic. The facts also didn't pull in a lot of the message and flavor of the Bible, the richness of the times. But, when I think of the many people who don't read the Bible but hunger for the story, I find this book could be useful to get them started. My fear is that they might never delve into a real Bible to find the complete story. Dr. Marty is extremely knowledgeable and his love for the Bible story is clearly seen through these pages. I want to thank Bethany House for my copy of the book. The opinions here are mine.
