Review:
Begin, put out by Answers in Genesis, is a summary of the Bible. It was written as an explanatory guide for people unfamiliar with the Bible, introducing and previewing God’s Word, and explaining the gospel from the beginning.

This biblical tour begins in Genesis 1-11, and then moves to the Ten Commandments, the Gospel of John, the book of Romans, and Revelation 21-22. Each section begins by explaining the context. These authors are definitely qualified, most holding doctorates in scientific fields, and all being biblical scholars.

One of Begin’s authors summarizes its purpose in the foreword: “This book…seeks to give the vital message in summary form so that people will get a ‘big picture’ understanding of the gospel—and be challenged to recognize their need of receiving Christ into their life as Lord and Savior.” The book delivers on this promise, and it also provides helpful and challenging explanations, side notes, and questions, including ten answers printed in the back of the book to scientific controversies about Genesis.

Altogether, this book is a well-assembled and insightful look at the gospel. It explains and argues key points and issues clearly and validly. Begin is excellent for those new to the gospel and those seeking understanding of both the overall unity and scientific legitimacy of the Bible. – Carlita Stewart, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
