“Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes!” (Psalm 119:12ESV).
“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law”
Though 66 separate books, 1,189 chapters, and hundreds thousands of words, the Bible shares one extraordinary message: God loves you (and I want to add: God is a Holy God).
From the first chapter of Genesis, where God creates human beings, through the last chapter of Revelation, where God welcomes anyone to “take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17), the Bible proves God is intimately involved in, familiar with, and concerned about the lives of people. His amazing love is shown in the death of His Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross. That sacrifice of sin allows anyone to be right with God through simple faith in Jesus’ work.

I only offer the book, apples are not included :)
These truths are found in the pages of Scripture. But sometimes they can be obscured by the vast amount of information the Bible contains. That’s why the writer and the publisher created (and I, Richard Angelus give away) Know Your Bible Illustrated.
In this book - a fully illustrated version of a small volume that’s sold more than a million copies – you’ll find brief surveys of all 66 Bible books. Each summarizes what that book is about, always within the context of God’s love and concern for people.
Every entry follows this outline:
IN TEN WORD’S OR LESS: a ‘nutshell’ glances at the book’s key theme, immediately following the book’s title.
AUTHOR/DATE: who wrote the book, according to the Bible itself or ancient tradition, and when the book was written or the time the book covers.
DETAILS, PLEASE: a synopsis of the key people, events, and messages covered in the book.
QUOTABLE: one, two, or several key verses from the book.
UNIQUE AND UNUSUAL: facts – some serious, some less so – that make the book stand out.
SO WHAT? An inspirational or devotional thought for each book.
Your Bible is certainly worth knowing. Use this book to begin a journey of discovery that could truly change your life!
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
