The Bible's Top Fifty Ideas: The Essential Concepts Everyone Should Know
All the important moral ideas of the modern world are based on Biblical verses that are analysed in this collection. What generally happens when someone picks up a copy of the Bible? The authors theory is that if one knows fifty verses of the five thousand in the Bible (only one percent!), the reader will begin to grasp the essence of the Bible. This surely is a revolutionary approach. This remarkable explanation of the Bible shows readers how it can serve as a light that illuminates a path through the confusion and problems in our personal and communal lives. The author uses the Bibles content to prod us, challenge us, and to push us into new and daring paths that will result in a life that is better, more serious, and with meaning, purpose and direction.
