The Bible - it's been called the most misunderstood book in history. Wars have been fought in its name, scandals have been precipitated by it, politics shaped and reshaped at its word. Theologians have both defended and reviled it. Skeptics have done the same.
Many people are perplexed by all the fuss surrounding the Bible. When asked, "What does it really say?" the response is often curiosity and an admission of ignorance.
The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus moves through the Bible from Creation to the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. The book explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part and missing the whole, the author chronologically binds together the entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from the perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening but always true to the intent of the text. This approach makes it an effective tool for evangelizing unbelievers.
