“Bird’s Eye View of the Bible” is a quick journey through bible foundations. It has 9 chapters with about 10 pages in each chapter, concluding with 12 testimonies from people whose life has been transformed. The book emphasizes the importance of developing a personal relationship with God. It provides a working knowledge of God’s Word and understanding regarding His absolute standards. It is an excellent choice for small groups, one on one discipling or as a mentoring tool. In spite of busyness in our lives, most people want answers to important questions. How did life begin? Why do we have to die? What happens to me when I die? Is there life after death? What should be my focus in life? Where can I find answers – is the Bible true? Do all roads lead to heaven? What is the truth? Does God really exist?
