There are two ways to study the Bible. The first way is appropriate to classroom or academic study. Using this approach, one looks at the Bible from the outside as a spectator. We shall read the Bible with personal concern, realizing that it is not a textbook but "a letter from God with your personal address on it," as Kierkegaard once said. We shall listen to the word which is spoken to each of us through the medium of the sacred page.

I first read the 1957 edition of this book after it was handed to me by a Presbyterian campus pastor. After reading Anderson's book, the disorganized hodgepodge of biblical passages absorbed from years of Sunday school and vacation Bible school suddenly snapped into place as an organized and coherent whole. Half a century later (and after reading many biblical theology books), the new edition still seems as fresh, clear, and helpful as my first experience with the book. N. T. Wright would, I think, agree with Anderson about the over-arching biblical narrative. However, James Kugel ("How to Read the Bible"--an excellent book in my opinion) in an online appendix explicitly disagrees with Anderson's approach. This probably reflects irreconcilable differences in Jewish and Christian approaches to the Bible.

The fourth edition of this book has an updated bibliography (references as late as 2003) although most seem to be 1 to 3 decades older. The short chapter "Reading the Bible in the Twenty-first Century" is very helpful.

This book would be useful to persons new to Christianity, to high-school youth, or to persons from conservative Christian backgrounds who are joining more moderate churches after a long period away from the church. Persons who subscribe to the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy will probably be uncomfortable with portions of this book. The book is written for persons whose educational background ranges from high-school juniors to college graduates.

This book was part of a course I took and it’s a quality reference. It isn’t meaty by any means (you can read it in a weekend) and heavily focuses on the Old Testament. The author hits a lot of fundamental points and remains objective throughout.

I bought this brand new and it was packed in a way that it wasn’t damaged.

This Bible study guide has been out for quite awhile with updated edition. I have used it with several groups over the years and have found Anderson's approach to understanding the Bible very enlightening and useful in helping people to explore a complex book. I suggest that if leading a study group you take more time than just eight sessions.

I have used this book for a number of years for teaching classes for new Christians as well as for leaders. It's simplicity provides an effective way to give the student the essential
framework for reading and understanding the Bible. I highly recomend it to anyone wanting a
simple and powerful way to understand the focus of the Bible without getting "blogged down" in the many battles and other events which tend to discourage most readers of the Bible. This book
helps directing the reader to those passages which are likely to be most helpful to the new and
the experienced Christian.

Very deep. The questions took too much reasearch for the average Bible Study student and looked way beyong our late age interests and capabilities. We all were rather numb by the time we finished the study, but we did finish it and gained some insight of the Bible as a complete unending story. Just ignored most of the written questions.
I just taught a class for lay people who are in leadership positions in their churches. Their experience was that the book was overly dry and hard to read. My concern is that it doesn't separate Wisdom literature, Law books, Psalms, Gospels and Epistles, for example. You don't get a through overview of the "unfolding drama" of the Bible really, thus 2 stars. As far as books that make this attempt, it is a starting place and I would recommend Bible teachers at least read it to see if they find it useful.
