Author Presents a Modern Summary of the Bible
'The Very Short Bible' explains the Bible in Simple Terms

KIRKLAND, Wash., April 2, 2024 /Standard Newswire/ -- Most people don't know much about the Bible and often don't understand its important messages. A short summary of the entire Bible is now available for busy people who want to read the story like a normal book, in chronological order and without duplication.

"The Very Short Bible: The Condensed Story of the Old and New Testaments," written by Dr. Peter Bylsma, makes all 66 books of the Bible easy to understand. Its 17 chapters in 200 pages can be read in 1–2 days. Structured like a modern book, it includes historical and geographical facts to clarify the context of the events.

The Bible is often quoted in the secular world but is largely misunderstood because people don't have time to read and understand such a long and complicated book. Dr. Bylsma spent decades summarizing complex issues and putting them into lay terms for busy people, so he is uniquely qualified to release this book.

"The Very Short Bible" shows that the Bible's main themes relate to current world events and personal struggles. Social, economic and political issues as well as topics related to love, justice, generosity, truth, power, discrimination, peace, money and forgiveness are part of conversations around the world and are discussed in the Bible. Although written several thousand years ago, the Bible's overall messages still relate to the modern world.

"People tend to get lost in the Bible's many stories and details and miss the main themes and big picture," said Dr. Bylsma. "When people understand the main points, they see how the ideas and stories relate to what is happening now in all cultures, communities and households."

Despite its brevity, "The Very Short Bible" stays faithful to the original biblical texts and is a notable achievement in presenting a concise summary of the Bible's vast narrative. Those who are already familiar with the Bible, those who want a better understanding of its overall themes and those who simply want to know the fascinating stories and messages of the most read book of all time will find "The Very Short Bible" intriguing and thought-provoking.
