Based on the Revised Standard Version this guide for reading and understanding the Bible gives a well arranged, simple and concrete plan for meaningful Bible reading. After setting forth the basic principles underlyin and understanding of the Bible, Dr. Blair offers a plan for reading the books of the Bible, differentiating between those that have had a simple and unified structure and those which are more complex. He details an outline plan for reading two representative books, I Thessalonians and Amos, and suggests several plans for reading of the Bible as a whole. A very practical and helpful book for the laity. Can be warmly recommended.
