Adventuring Through the Bible is an excellent survey of the Protestant Bible, both Old and New Testaments. (Stedman, writing for an evangelical audience, does not cover the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical books, of course.) The book is written at a layman's level, with many anecdotes to help explain the meaning of the Bible, as well as the reason for reading the world's best selling book. Meanwhile, the book is quite thorough in its explanation of the Bible, book by book, and despite the layman's level of reading, the book is not "dumbed down." The expanded edition is loaded with maps and charts, discussion questions and sidebars, as well as some beautiful color photographs of the Holy Land. (The only difficulty I had with the ebook version I read was that a couple of sidebars in the first few chapters were almost too dark in color to read.) There are also a few Bible reading plans added before the book's Index, that many readers will find very helpful if they are interested in reading the Bible in one year.
For a reader-friendly guide to the Bible, the average Bible reader will find Adventuring Through the Bible a useful addition to his or her library.
