This is a second edition of a study guide intended mainly for lay Christians in developing countries. The international flavour is well represented in the text and the many well-produced photographs. A few pages on each section of the biblical text include outline, interpretation, notes and questions. Standard scholarly views are summarized in passing (with other views occasionally noted), though the book concentrates on relevance and application. It has many appealing aspects and should be well used.
