“By understanding the stories and structure of the Bible, the reader will be motivated and encouraged to spend more time in the word of God.”
Maitland, FL (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
The Bible can be very intimidating. Oftentimes it can be confusing, difficult to understand and not to mention very long. Ron Durham’s new book, Ancient Words ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61904-798-3; $7.49, eBook, 978-1-61904-799-0), can help those struggling not only opening the Bible for the first time, trying to figure out where to start, but this book will also help those who just need a bit more motivation and encouragement to dive back into the word of God. Durham understands that the Bible is a difficult to understand and he has put together a book that successfully helps readers put important biblical stories and events in chronological and theological context, which then makes the Bible less intimidating.
“I set about to produce an easy reading ‘big picture’ snapshot of the Bible by focusing on God’s word as basically a book of stories. This book is sprinkled with evangelical commentary,” Durham states. “By understanding the stories and structure of the Bible, the reader will be motivated and encouraged to spend more time in the word of God.”
Ron Durham is a businessman and a real estate developer from Birmingham, Alabama. He currently serves as an elder at his church and has been saved by the grace of God for over fourteen years.
