    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Pushes the reader further into the Bible

    Those of us stateside aren't as familiar with Pawson as our British counterparts. His writings, however, are usually superb and this is no exception. It's huge - and takes forever to read - but very few other books are so successful at nudging you towards the Bible.

    This volume contains a systematic, book-by-book overview of the Scripture. For each book, he gives the reader a plethora of important contextual information (history, grammar, etc) and then gives a highlight of the main themes. It's not anywhere near comprehensive, though (what book like this could be?). Many chapters will leave the reader wanting more - and that's his point. Essentially, this book is a 1350-page menu. Read the menu, and then decide which course to chew on and digest first.

    This is the only book I've read so far that gives me a desire to study Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Jeremiah, Lamentations, etc.

    Although Pawson has routinely come out and strongly taken sides in various debates (predestination/free will, hell, prophecy/tongues, end times, etc) this book is not argumentative at all. His purpose is to push people further into the Bible for themselves. He shows admirable restraint in leaving his views contained to one or two paragraphs, not allowing them to grow into full-blown chapter-long arguments (like many authors do). I'll put it this way: even if I strongly disagreed with the author on every doctrine I just mentioned, my recommendation wouldn't change.

    I cannot think of a better book for new believers to read than this. All at once you get
    - An excellent reference to refer to when beginning a new study
    - Pretty thorough coverage of the basics of Christianity
    - Tons of historical and grammatical context to help with interpretation and application issues
    - Motivation to make Bible study more than a just a discipline - a fun hobby

    Five stars.
