Press Reviews

For those who’ve been putting aside two years in later life to read the Bible from cover to cover, the good news is: the most important bits are here.

- Jeremy Vine, journalist and broadcaster

This book is a brilliant and inventive taster. It introduces the reader to the actual words of scripture: no paraphrases, no summaries, just the revealed words of God so arranged as to give a hint of the wonder of the Bible in its full dimensions.

- Sister Wendy Beckett, writer and art historian

What an amazing concept - and why in the world hasn’t it been done before? This compelling, concise, slimmed-down Scripture is a must for anyone who finds those 66 books a tad daunting. In today’s busy world, this is a book for everyone's bookcase - except it won’t be on there much as you’ll be reading it or lending it.

- Paul Kerensa, TV scriptwriter and comedian
