For all who find the Bible a bit daunting, The Bible from Scratch could be just what's needed. This quick sketch of the Bible offers easy-to-follow graphics with clear and simple explanations of the essential meaning of every Bible book and introduces all the famous people and events in the Bible story.
Lively, witty, and entertaining, it's the ideal starting point for all who want to get better acquainted with the world's best-selling book but don't know where to start.
"While this book is engagingly and comically written, there is serious theology too. This is a book to give or recommend to someone who might be put off by serious theology but has intelligence to think about key issues in the Bible."
—Jon Reynolds, The Reader
"I can urge you to buy this classic guidebook. Imagine an intelligent, funny, unpatronizing friend with a gift for instant explanation and clarification. That's how you feel when using this newly revised edition. Jenkins untangles, enlightens and informs. The method is distillation, not dumbing-down."
—Rory Keegan, CY Magazine
"Witty, entertaining, endlessly enjoyable guide to the Bible. . . . It should have particular appeal to teenagers and young people who see the Bible as boring. The Bible from Scratch certainly proves to be otherwise."
