I am happy to introduce my new book, Essential Bible Background!
This is a project I have been working on for most of my career as a
teacher. The book contains an introduction to each of the sixty-six
books of the Bible including author, date, historical setting, theme,
purpose and theology.

In addition to the introduction to each book, there are appendices
which include articles on How to Study the Bible, Essential Dates in
the Bible, Whose Who in the Bible, and Definitions of key biblical and
theological Words. There is even a section on humor in the Bible.

The book is available on for $19.95. Just click on the
link below. I hope you find this to be a helpful resource!
