    The Bible Book by Book

    A Journey Through Its People, Places and Themes

    The Bible Book by Book is a fully illustrated introduction to each book of the Bible, written and designed for teens and youth workers. Each introduction is 1,200-1,500 words long and can be read in five minutes. The presentations are pithy, direct, and effective and will help teens and youth workers experience Scripture as the living story of God and His people, not just words on a page.

    "The disciples were Jesus' youth group," explains Cris Rogers. "John was most probably only fourteen and Peter, the oldest, might have been twenty-five. Jesus had to take an old, out-of-date book, and reinterpret it for his young people. Youth workers, preachers, teachers, and small group leaders have to do this each week, re-imagining Scripture for a new and almost ignorant generation that is unaware of its ignorance."

    The Bible Book by Book is not a commentary, though it does offer notes on style, background, location, cultural details, and major themes, as well as lists of further reading for each book of the Bible. Instead, it is an invitation for the next generation to let the Bible permeate their imagination.
