Everything You Want to Know About the Bible by Peter Downey

Book Description

It's the bestselling book ever. It's been translated into more than 2,000 languages. It's changed people's lives around the world. No, it's not Thin Thighs in 30 Days ...it's the Bible! Yet the Bible remains about as well-understood to many people as your typical software license agreement-and about as exciting. That's too bad, because the Bible is exciting, and it doesn't have to be a mystery. Whether you're new to the Bible and think the book of Job is a guide to finding the perfect career, or your rusty Bible knowledge needs a spit-and-polish, or you just want a fresh look at the book you've read so many times, this is the book for you. No dry theological treatise, it's written in an engaging, humorous style you will enjoy. In short, readable chapters, the authors first answer some basic questions: Who wrote the Bible? Is it accurate? How do you find your way around it? And how did Noah fit all those animals into the ark anyway? (Well, maybe not that, but there's still plenty of trivia in there.) Then they take you on a guided tour from Genesis to Revelation, summarizing important people, events, and themes. You'll get a good foundation for understanding and an excitement for reading this most important of books, the Bible. "The title says it all! It's an inspiring trailer for the Best Book in the World. Read it front to back or just dip in-either way it does the biz." -Rob Lacey, author of the word on the street, actor and broadcaster

Author Biography - Peter Downey

Peter Downey is on executive staff at a Christian school in Sydney, Australia. The author of three marriage and parenting books, including So You're Going to be a Dad, he was listed in The Bulletin magazine as one of Australia's Top Ten parenting authors. He is also author of Everything You Want to Know about the Bible (co-authored with Ben Shaw), a book about Jesus for the Bible Society, and has written for a range of journals and publications. Although he has a Bachelor, Masters, and Doctoral degrees in Arts and Education and a diploma in Biblical Studies, he feels like a guy writing a book about automotive engineering when all he's done is worked part-time in a carwash. He and his wife have three daughters. Ben Shaw is a curate at Emmanuel Church in Wimbledon, London. He studied theology and went on to receive his MA in ancient history. A former rock singer and guitarist with the Australian-based Christian rock band In the Silence, he does a lot of speaking and continues to perform musically. His greatest love is his wife, Karen.
