    "The Story of Christianity: The Reformation to the Present Day would not be a good choice if you are looking for a guide to help you understand the Bible. This book is more of the history of Christianity and doesn't delve into the scripture from the Bible. "

    "If I would be completely forward, if you want something to aid you in comprehending the Bible, just read the Bible then, instead of looking for other books, it is pretty simple, but I could definitely see why people would seek other books to understand the Bible. This specific book seem to well received by a lot of people, so I can recommend it too and it is fitting based on what I have read from the comments."

    "Far too short. It's like a long essay, not even really a book. There aren't enough examples or passages taken from the Bible. I really didn't learn what I wanted from this, luckily it was free for me. "

    "You would think living by the Bible would be pretty self-explanatory. I mean, it's the Bible. It was written to tell people how to live. Why would anyone need another book when they could just read the Holy one?"
