The AMG Concise Introduction to the Bible is for every person who has ever wanted to get a firm grasp on Bible history and Bible meaning, but didn't have a clue how to do it or where to begin. Dr. Vos brings the Bible to life, not only as he recounts the events of biblical history, but also as he makes it relevant for the readers of the twenty-first century. Not only does the Bible report human opinions, but it also gives divine insights into all the issues of life. Thus, it gives perspectives and answers available nowhere else. Viewed from this standpoint, the Bible is not some book out of the musty past that has only antiquarian interests for a few with a nostalgic bent; but it has a vital, contemporary relevance.
