Author: Mark D. Berrier
About the Book:
Let me introduce myself: I'm Dr. Mark Berrier; I've been teaching at Dallas Christian College for more than 40 years. I have taught Greek, Hebrew and Bible. Some years ago I wrote a book called The Bible for Busy People: Book I: The Old Testament. It was published in 1994. I then finished the NT one by the same name, Book II, in Dec. 2001.
They are written with about an 800-word vocabulary for my freshman classes in Survey of NT/OT. They have already been translated into Finnish, Hindi, Spanish and some other languages.
They are suitable to give to any new or long-time Christian, since they are a simple distillation of all my study in Bible over the last 56 years. I believe they would be useable in the prison systems of the U. S. They will be useable by pastors, elders and Bible teachers. I only want God to use them to help people.
