Baffled by the Babylonians? Unsure of the difference between a concubine and a porcupine? Wondering if the epistles were the wives of the apostles? Or if there’s such a thing as the First Book of Eunuchs? The Bible is probably the most famous book in the world, but because it comes to us from out of the ancient past, it can be hard to find your way round. And that’s where this book comes in.
The Bible from Scratch is a practical and highly visual guide to the Bible, filled with cartoons, maps, speech bubbles and family trees. It gives brief information about every book from Acts to Zechariah, as well as explaining all the major divisions of the Bible. And it introduces the famous faces – heroes and villains alike – plus the big events, putting them all into context so you can make sense of them and see the Bible’s big picture.
Whether you’re new to the Bible, or have never really understood how it all fits together, The Bible from Scratch is a good place to start in getting to know the Good Book better.
What readers have said about the book…
“Sadly, eight years in Catholic school didn’t teach me even a fraction of what this book did about the contents of the Bible. This book explained the different sections and books in plain terms. Now I am actually inspired to read the Bible and learn what it’s all about.” Eva Mikola, Amazon
“I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had just the right amount of humour and irreverence to keep we wanting to come back, and yet at times proved to be profound and revealing. The author doesn’t get bogged down in dogma or theological debate and so his Bible becomes relevent and meaningful to me. A great way into the good book.” benaskew, Amazon

Jesus has probably inspired more books and biographies than anyone else in human history. But which of them are worth reading if you’re exploring the life of Jesus for the first time – or even for the second or third times?
