Overview

This course will help people attain a basic understanding of Scripture and identify a simple way of finding key sections of the Bible.

The Bible can be daunting. How does the average person make sense of it all? See Through the Scriptures makes the Bible more accessible by taking readers step-by-step through the entire biblical narrative from Genesis to Revelation, putting everything in clear context. With full-color teaching graphics designed to help people grasp and remember the key events and concepts of the Bible, students gain a new appreciation for everything that preceded Jesus in order to more fully understand the deeper meaning of His ministry and message of love and servanthood.

See Through the Scriptures® is published by Crossways International® .
