A non-illustrated reissue of "The Message of the Bible", this book was written to show how the Bible is relevant in our own times. How can the Bible's teaching, written in the ancient world, be validly interpreted so that it teaches us God's principles for living in the varied societies of our own world? The aim is to get the reader started by giving an overview with plenty of examples. The overview is given through the introductions to each Bible book. These explain what each book says and show its relevance. The outlines serve the same purposes. The examples are the key passages, about 200 of which have been selected from the whole Bible. These show how to understand and apply the Bible's message today. Summaries of the central Bible teachings with reference to aid personal study make up a separate section and take readers to the heart of Bible teaching.

Publishers Weekly, 1996-04-08 Convinced that the Bible needs to be more relevant for contemporary culture, Archbishop of Canterbury Carey and a team of assembled scholars set out to provide an accessible guide to reading and understanding it. Each chapter of their book focuses on one biblical book; and individual scholars provide overview, outline and commentary on selected scripture units as an introduction to the message of the Bible for everyday life. For example, according to the overview of the Gospel of Mark, the message of Mark for everyday life concerns the way of discipleship. In addition, the volume contains a helpful appendix of key Christian beliefs, from the Ascension to worship, and their biblical origins. While the limited amount of space given to each biblical text often results in one-dimensionality, the readings do whet the appetite for a more complete meal from the biblical banquet. (Apr.)
