Review:
OK, I'll say it again, these books in the Instant Expert series will not make you an expert, instant or otherwise. They really are just too short to do that for such complex issues and topics, however they are brilliant overviews that will quickly, easily and clearly help you gain an insight into the key areas they address. With this one Nick Page does an excellent job of distilling an overview of the Bible - namely what it is, why it is and how it is (for want of a better set of terms) into 94 pages of clear bold print. In here are short and insightful paragraphs on the make up of the Bible, the problems that have occasionally occurred (yes even some heretics get a quick mention) and a really good whistle-stop tour through the books of the Bible. As a first introduction to what the Bible is, this is a great little tool to have to hand.
