About "Understanding the Bible"
What is the Bible really all about? Why was it written and can it be trusted? Why should we read it? In this revised edition of a classic work, John Stott answers these questions. With his usual clarity and authority he spells out the Bible's purpose, examines the social, geographical and historical background, and outlines the Bible's story line. He then guides readers to apply the Bible's teaching to their daily lives.
