Perfect for those interested in learning more about what the Bible actually says but who have neither the time nor the interest to read the actual thing Ever thought you should know more about what's in the Bible, not because you believe in any religion, but because it's the most read book in history? Before you dust off the family Bible, or reach into the hotel bed stand, The Nonbeliever's Guide to Bible Stories will save you a lot of time and trouble. Coupling an editor's pen with a skeptic's commentary and humorist's wit, it offers the highlights of each book of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, and distills them into quick, entertaining, bite-sized chunks. It's all here: the characters, famous quotes, tall tales, and references often heard in film, music, art, literature, and conversation. You'll also learn about all the sex, murder, harlotry, intrigue, magic tricks, ghosts, and sin that help fill sermons on Sunday mornings.

Even for the most ardent skeptic, it's hard not to be curious about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Maybe you've seen the hit musical comedy The Book of Mormon. Maybe you've read about Holocaust victims and deceased celebrities like Elvis being posthumously baptized in Mormon churches. Or maybe you've come across some other belief or facet of the Mormon faith and can't help but wonder whether the religion is actually as wild as it seems. Sure, the young Mormon missionaries who knock on your door with promises of a book that will change your life are happy to speak with you about their religion and provide their own answers. But if you accept their offer, you'll likely be heavily recruited, repeatedly contacted, pressured to become a church member, and perhaps even told you're going to be tortured in hell if you don't accept their claims. Enter The Nonbeliever's Guide to the Book of Mormon, which offers an easily accessible, entertaining introduction to Mormonism. For those with a curious but skeptical mind, it also provides a no-pressure, no-strings-attached way to learn about what's contained in Mormonism's sacred text, without the tedium of having to read the whole thing--or the risk of being pestered in this life (or the afterlife, for that matter).

In this new series - BIBLE THREADS, Keys to Understanding the Bible - Arlington McRae offers us a fresh new 21st century paradigm for how we approach the Bible and understand its essential message. The Bible presents us with a series of stories and related events. The question becomes, "How are these stories and events connected? And what are we to do with them?" The answer is found in understanding "Bible Threads". A Bible thread is the link or bridge that connects the stories and books. A Bible thread is what each story and/or book has in common with other books or stories from Genesis to Revelation. This series addresses the indispensable threads to prepare you to read your Bible enthusiastically with great understanding; and to allow you the joy of discovering other threads for yourself through your own daily Bible study. This volume offers a power packed, Jesus inspired, potentially life-changing resource as it presents the Bible to us in its simplest form. Starting at the beginning, the author walks us through a new "perspective" and a new "context" for how we understand and interpret what we read. It is designed for (a) those of us new to the Bible, and (b) those who never received a comprehensive overview of the Bible that makes sense to them. In this volume, the author lays out the structure and the over all story - the big picture - of the Bible. This presentation is designed to broaden the context for how we interpret and unify the various books and stories. At the completion of this volume, you will be encouraged to read your Bible and to study it more intelligently with much more confidence and with a satisfying sense of accomplishment.
