The Bible Made Clear is a guidebook for anyone approaching the Bible for the first time, or for those who want to feel more at home in its pages. Written in non-technical language, yet drawing on the latest fruits of study and research, this illustrated book starts with the 'story' of the Bible, and then unpacks its various literary styles. Wisdom, chronicle, poetry, allegory and apocalyptic elements are explained and illustrated. Sections on the Gospels and the great personalities of the Bible are supported by background historical and geographical information, and popular misconceptions about the Bible are also answered. Finally there is a comprehensive summary of every book of the Bible, with suggested passages from each to read.
