    This book helped me understand salvation. The reason Jesus had to die on the cross for my sins. Why I was forgiven when He died.

    I hate tracts! They try to take the amazing good news of salvation and sell it as a cheap 30-second or less advertisement... not enough for true seekers; just enough to annoy like junk mail. This book is a great contrast! - it gives a simple and yet complete explanation of the main messages of the Bible! The neatly-packaged chapters build one principle at a time to give the real seeker the purpose of Christ and the cross. The book is good for individuals and group studies.

There were some important areas that it was a 1. Though the concerns I have are just large enough outweighing the positives that I would not give this book to an unbeliever for evangelistic purposes, here are the reasons I would give it to a believer in order to help them communicate the Word of God evangelistically. 1. The author has an engaging writing style that brings clarity. 2. Though the book is not a big picture tie Scripture together kind of book, it is rather comprehensive. In other words, it is not a fly by the night quick evangelistic book. It deals with a great majority of the Bible with a focus on gospel themes. 3. The book is faithful theologically. The author's theological instincts are biblical even though there are a few important secondary issues that rear their heads. 4. The book is a helpful example of addressing an unbeliever personally with the truths of the gospel and its threads throughout all of the Scripture. 5. As a believer, I found that it was edifying and caused me to rejoice in the gospel. 6. The book is full of Scripture and often very skillfully woven together to present the gospel. Here are my reasons for not giving to an unbeliever even though that is the design of the book (from most serious to less) 1. The author basically warns against those that teach that repentance and faith are gifts from God. In my view, that is a warning against what Scripture itself plainly teaches. 2. The role of the church in a new believer's life is relegated to a subpoint of resources on how to keep focus in one's walk with the Lord. Even then, the church is only included under the resources of other believers. In addition, the bulk of the section dealing with the church warns against false churches (a necessary point but...) without magnifying the role of a biblical church in the life of all believers. In addition, after carefully following the storyline of all of Scripture up to and past the historical events of the gospel the author completely skips over the start of the church in Acts and speaks of the conversion of Saul of Tarsus like an island in the middle of a sea of no context. 3. Almost every other passage quoted is from a different translation. It is distracting and I would think confusing for an unbeliever to see that. At the end of the book there is a short article on choosing a translation and it might be the point was to display various good translations and subtly guard against a KJVO position, but all in all, I think it would have been better to choose one primary translation throughout the book. 4. The author speaks of "free will." I can handle that and define it as I believe it would need to be defined biblically, but I personally think it would be better to speak of real choices that God holds us accountable for rather than "free will." My suspicion is that the author would want to add more autonomy to that definition than I believe Scripture allows. 5. Connected to #1 and #4 there was a complete dearth of exalting God's sovereign grace in salvation. Grace is clearly taught, but with the emphasis of Jesus even evangelistic situations upon God's sovereign grace in salvation it would seem to be a mistake not to emphasize that. Of course, one's theological commitments might bring a kind of blindness to that need. The book was so good, apart from these concerns, that I am still tempted to hand it out to unbelievers. But since there are other helpful resources I will likely not do so. I would like to read a similar book like this without these major concerns. If you took these issues out this book it would be a 5-star book hands down.

    A good book that I plan on reading several times in my life. Helps to explain the bigger parts of the bible thoroughly and is backed up with lots of evidence and facts.

    I was displeased with this author from his first words-his attempt to stifle any discussion as to what he had written immediately set a tone of 'I'm the dictator; while you, the reader, are an idiot'. You may not question nor challenge me. I found that this tone continued throughout the book and was equally if not more apparent in the workbook. This is not a book I would recommend even to a beginner/new Christian.

This is not a book I would recommend even to a beginner/new Christian. It likens our growth in Christ to a second grade workbook exercise that demands repetition of what the book says. It is the opposite of growth. It smothers questions that need to be asked. It disallows discovery and interpretation. You've gotten it completely wrong Mr. Cross. This is not a teaching text. Unfortunately for me, I committed to a bible study, not having become familiar with this text. I stayed with it to meet that commitment, and have regretted each minute spent reading this. Only the fellowship of those in the bible study has given any light to the time spent.

    This book is simple, clear & consistent from start to finish. It does not get caught up in the more complex realities of the Bible, but simply communicates the heart of its message. It addresses the problem of sin, the plan of salvation, and the solution in Jesus Christ. While not a riveting read, it does capture the basic tenants of the Christian faith. For anyone seeking to know more about the Bible and what it communicates about Jesus, this is a great read. This book is simple, clear & consistent from start to finish.

    I love this book because it allows me to see the Bible as a whole; not as a bunch of stories put into a book. This would be a great book for a new Christian or for someone exploring the idea of Christianity. It is an overview of the Bible in it simplest form. When Christianity starts feeling too complicated, I like to read it to bring me back to the basics.

    This was a free download for my Kindle. I thought it might be an interesting look - maybe even fictionalised - at the meeting of the risen Jesus with two disciples walking to Emmaus. However that was barely touched upon. Instead, it tried to explain the entire Old Testament, as if this was what Jesus said on this journey - and (in my view) the book did not succeed.

The author pushes his own, highly reformed point of view, not giving an overview of how the Bible fits together but a personal theology of which a great deal seems to be based on Genesis. I'm not the target audience anyway - this is intended for people who don't know how the Bible and its history tie together, but it's much too detailed and rigid for anyone who really is asking that kind of question. After struggling through about half the book, I decided I was finding it too annoying, and abandoned it.

    Everyone needs to read this book, believer and unbeliever alike. For believers, it systematically explains what we believe and why, from the beginning to the end. So many believers don’t understand why they believe what they do. This book makes that clear. For the unbeliever, it’s a very open and honest explanation of what the Bible says to be true. While I do think it’s persuasive because of the facts that are presented, it’s not trying to “sell” anything.

Cross lets the Bible speak for itself, simply adding commentary and illustration to make the meaning easier to understand. I also like how it ends. For the believer, it explains what that person needs to be doing in light of that belief, practical steps to follow. For the unbeliever, it gives a consideration, still allowing the Word of God to do the speaking. This is the clearest explanation of the Christian faith I have ever read.

    Discusses topics that Christ may have discussed with the disciples on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24. Goes through all the references to Christ in the Old Testament and continues with His Saving Work in the New Testament. Not a deep theological work, this book functions more as a study of how the entire Bible is about Christ.

    An easy to read and understand book that helps the reader to see how all the events in the Bible connect and point to Jesus. People have a lot of misconceptions about the Bible and this book does a good job bringing clarity to it all.

    Great book handed to my by a youth pastor who is taking his group thru it. Kind of like a college bible survey course. Great chapter on sin and the atonement. The book work its way thru the bible in a survey form. Would be a great one on one discipleship book.

    I began to read the book and questioned myself, "What is going on here?" But I stuck with it, up until the end. And THEN, it made sense. That first line above: It’s been called “the most misunderstood book in history.” Made a lot of sense. Because right from the beginning of the book it was a build up from the beginning of the Bible. Well written and capturing of the mind. Excellent and well worth the time to read!

    A wonderful look at the Bible from the beginning to show that everything pointed to Jesus the Messiah and what the means to the lives of all humans.

    Firstly, for those unaware, the title and concept of this book is derived from the Gospel of Luke (24:13-27). In that part of the Gospel of Luke, two disciples of Jesus, travelling to Emmaus, met a stranger (who is later revealed to be the supposedly resurrected Jesus) who explained the meaning of the Scriptures to them. Moving on, I must express my scepticism regarding the presence of a singular message/theme running throughout the entire Bible.

Moving on, I must express my scepticism regarding the presence of a singular message/theme running throughout the entire Bible. Evidently, as the author himself admits, the Bible is not a single book but a collection of disparate texts written by different authors in different times and varying circumstances. Thus, I suppose one would be right to wonder if it was the case that there indeed being a singular message/theme running throughout the entire Bible which people/believers have discovered or was it rather the case that people/believers, deciding that there must be a singular message/theme in the Bible, forcefully "found" one? Also, I must express my disappointment (but not surprise) that although the author claims in the preface of the book that he intends to write an objective book on the Bible, the book evidently presents a pro-Christian (and perhaps pro-Biblical literalism) perspective on things. In conclusion, I would say that this book resembles an extended version of the "Four Spiritual Laws" and would serve best as an introductory text to non-believers who are interested to find out about the basic theological beliefs of Christianity, especially in light of the book's clear and easily understandable style of writing. I would also recommend it to believers who may wish to "revise" what is written in the Bible.

    John R. Cross is an engaging writer and the book it interesting to say the least. While I disagree with this theology and have some issues with his sources, the book is very reader friendly. Cross espouses a literal reading of the bible and goes to great length to support his belief, including offering "proof" that dinosaurs and humans existed together, continental drift was a result of the flood, that all people can trace their DNA to common male and female ancestors, and more. The problem is, John R. Cross is an engaging writer and the book it interesting to say the least.

Cross espouses a literal reading of the bible and goes to great length to support his belief, including offering "proof" that dinosaurs and humans existed together, continental drift was a result of the flood, that all people can trace their DNA to common male and female ancestors, and more. The problem is, his sources are suspect at best. For instance his source support for a common female ancestor of "very recent origin" is a Newsweek article from 1988. However, the article is clear that this "Eve" dates back 200,000 years and that she is not the first female. Where he doesn't have support, for instance to answer the question "How did God create light before he created the sun?" He reverts to the simplistic, "it was easy because he's God." Cross does eventually get to what he calls "the one unfolding story of the Bible," that is that God created us perfect, Adam and Eve sinned and we inherited their punishment/debt, the only way to pay that debt off is through death and blood atonement, Jesus took care of that on the cross, if we believe otherwise we have to pay the debt ourselves through eternal death in Hell. The author claims to be objective and neutral; he is simply presenting the story and leaving it up to the readers to decide for themselves. He is neither neutral or objective and the message he sends is "disagree at your own eternal peril." In taking such a narrow approach to "the one unfolding story of the Bible" John R. Cross completely misses the point.

    Cross starts from the New Testament event of Jesus explaining to the 2 disciples on the road to Emmaus how all of Scripture pointed to the necessity of his sacrificial death on the cross and traces God's plan for redemption through the Old and New Testaments.

    this book is NOT biblical. it is cultural, it is meant to entangle a large audience intto "easy" or "convenient" christianity. the abundance of feeding the good and fun stuff is clearly exagerrated and the gospel message of Jesus Christ is clearly put on hold. the concept of sin appears watered down, not emphasized enough. for those who want to read a simple bible rather than seek, hit, scratch, claw, fight, argue for the heavy burdens of the biblical life, then it can be simply equated that...

    Very well written and insightful This is a good book that I would recommend for both newer and more seasoned Christians. John makes it easier to understand and follow some of the stories and elements in the Bible. He helps his readers understand the reasoning behind different things that were/are done. (for example blood sacrifices, and sabbath days)

    Absolutely amazing. Good for believers and skeptics. This is has opened up my eyes to the bible as a whole. It has made it more understandable and has really been a blessing. My copy is all hightlighted and marked up! I will use this as a resource and re-read it over and over.

    A wonderful approach to knowing the story and message of the Bible using the two disciples on the road to Emmaus and the "stranger" who joined them and explained the Word. Great read, but a slow one if you want to get the most out of it.

    This book explains the story of the Bible in a way that makes sense to people who don't know the Bible well. Great book to study in a group. I recently studied it with a group of women in a Beyond Alpha class.
