What the critics say
"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)
"Stories of love and teaching for life - and more besides!" (Dame Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London)
"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...." (Paul Kerensa, TV scriptwriter and comedian)
