Great Start

My daughter's music teacher buys these books in bulk. He hands them out for free and keeps a stack by his door in his shop. Wonderful resource to have!
Excellent overview
Review by
I recommend this book to those who have never had a good amount of biblical teaching. Wether it’s a new believer or someone who was not ever in a teaching church or had a good family bible study. It’s gives the highlights of the Bible and shows the interconnectedness of Scripture.
A Journey Through Scriptures
Review by
As stated on the cover, BEGIN is a journey through scriptures for seekers and new believers. It takes readers through key scripture passages from the beginning of the Bible until the end using the ESV of the Bible:

Genesis 1-11 (the Foundation)
Exodus 20:1-17 (the Ten Commandments)
John (the Gospel)
Romans (Letter from Paul to Christians)
Revelation 21-22 (the Fulfillment in Heaven)

The book begins with some brief commentary that includes places to take notes. It then goes into the actual scripture passages. Obviously, since it starts from the beginning, readers will begin with Genesis 1:1. As you read through the scripture passages, there will be little facts and cross-reference points. The sides of the pages include lines where you can take notes as desired. At the end of the chapter/section, there is a question or something to think about which is followed by a notes section to journal your thoughts.

Each scripture passage is preceded by some commentary, an overview, and/or some history. Because this book does not contain the Bible in its entirety, it briefly fills in the historical blanks before moving into the next scripture passage. The book concludes with sections on:

What Does It Mean to be Saved?
Ten Basics to Boldly Proclaim a Biblical Worldview
Six Literal Days
Radiometric Dating
Variety within Created Kinds
Uniqueness of Man
Distant Starlight
Global Flood
Dinosaurs on the Ark
One Race
Suffering and Death
The Gospel
A Final Note of Truth: Wasn't the Bible Written by Mere Men?

If you do not like commentary with the Bible, this book is not for you. If you do not like Ken Ham's (Answers in Genesis) teachings, this book is not for you. If you're looking for key passages in scripture that feature commentary and your worldview lines up with that of Answers in Genesis, this book could be right for you. This book is meant to be a supplement, not replacement for an actual Bible.

Book Description (from back of book):

The Bible, available in so many different versions, can be a little intimidating for the new or casual reader, but now there is a simple road map to follow that sets the stage, creates the context, and helps you effectively navigate the scope and relevance of God's Word. Begin presents foundational and relevant portions of Scripture from the ESV version of the Bible, along with a powerful mix of commentary, historical information, and helpful detail that gives you an easy overview of the structure and focus of the Bible. From helpful details to an opportunity to interact with the verses through journaling, the book encourages you to begin reading and understanding the Bible in a deeper way!
