30 Days to Understanding the Bible, 30th Anniversary Edition by Max Anders....with a giveaway

Book description:

If you've ever confused the ark of the covenant with the ark of Noah, or Jericho with Jeroboam, Max Anders' classic book, 30 Days to Understanding the Bible, is for you. In just fifteen minutes a day, you'll learn the Bible's key people, events, and doctrines to get more out of God's Word. This simple-to-use, straightforward guide has been recommended by Bible teachers and pastors for thirty years, and now it's available in an expanded thirtieth anniversary edition—with the most requested topics from the original edition restored and updated for today's readers.

Features include:

The “Arc of Bible History” to help you visualize the Bible’s overarching themes
The “Story of the Bible” summarizing Genesis through Revelation in just a few pages
The core beliefs of the Christian faith, focusing on the teachings that have united Christians for the last 2,000 years
13-week plan that provides teacher’s every creative and effective tool for teaching the Bible in 30 days 
Fan-favorite bonus content, previously removed, now restored from the original edition.

My review:

  The original book has been around for 30 years, but I can't remember if I read it before or not. I have read a lot of books in my life.

 This book is more of a reference type of book, but it is written in an interesting and easy to read manner...which is not always the case with reference books.

  The book is split up into 7 sections:
The Old Testament Era
The New Testament Era
10 Great Doctrines of the Bible
NanoSummery of the Bible
How to Master the Bible so well that the Bible Masters You
Teaching Plan
Bonus Chapters

 Scattered throughout are also some self-tests and review sections. I have been familiar with the Bible for most of my life, but I still found the book informative, helpful, and interesting. It would be idea for new Christians, but it would also be good for any Christian, no matter how familiar they are with the Bible. It would also make a good Bible study book. I definitely recommend it.
