"A Quick Overview of the Bible" by Douglas A.Jacoby is a book to help you put everything together like a puzzle. The Bible, one of the bestselling books and one of the least understood by most people, was written over 2000 years ago. Today there are many different translations out there for those who cannot comprehend the King James Bible, but even with those it is hard to comprehend it all, especially the Old Testament and the Prophecies. Reading the Bible and Studying the Bible are two different things. Studying is like putting a puzzle together. When you study you find four things: the inspiration behind what you read, the foundation of what you are reading, the illumination, and the observation. What does it say, what does it mean, and what other verses relate to what I am reading? The Author teaches you this and much more in this book.

I enjoyed studying this book and from the very first I decided I had to have a marker on hand. There was so much pertinent information throughout that if I did not mark it when I read it I would forget just what page it was on. This book is one that would help someone grow in their confidence in learning what the Bible has to say and help them become more competent and diligent in dealing with others if Bible questions arise. As a teacher of a women’s group I have found this book to be quite helpful for myself to use with the group. We will never know everything but if you put these four practices into use you will find the Bible becoming more alive to you. Recommended for all who want a deeper knowledge of the Bible. When you learn to put the puzzle together you will find a beautiful picture of God’s word.
