Book Review - 30 Days to Understanding the Bible


If you've ever confused the ark of the covenant with the ark of Noah, or Jericho with Jeroboam, Max Anders' classic book, 30 Days to Understanding the Bible, is for you. In just fifteen minutes a day, you'll learn the Bible's key people, events, and doctrines to get more out of God's Word. This simple-to-use, straightforward guide has been recommended by Bible teachers and pastors for thirty years, and now it's available in an expanded thirtieth anniversary edition—with the most requested topics from the original edition restored and updated for today's readers.


Dr. Max Anders is the author of over 25 books, including the bestselling 30 Days to Understanding the Bible, and is the creator and general editor of the 32-volume Holman Bible Commentary series. He has taught on the college and seminary level and is a veteran pastor.  Max provides resources and discipleship strategies at to help people grow spiritually


30 Days to Understanding the Bible really gives you an over-view of what the Bible is all about. It's sort of like the Bible in a nutshell but there are some wonderful tools to help you retain what you've read and to understand it, as well. I personally liked the writing down of the things I learned in different ways so I could instantly recall what I had learned after doing all these exercises. It's a wonderful way to learn and retain!

This is a wonderful book for new believers and long-time believers. It gives you a basic understanding of the Bible and what it means. I have been a theology student and I can attest that there were things in this book that were explained in a much better way than any of my professors ever did. I have been studying the Bible for many years and this book is an excellent tool for giving you a grasp of what you need to know from the Bible.

Max Anders never deviates from the Word of God and he never talks down to you in this book. He really makes it quite enjoyable to read and I enjoyed each and every page. I also loved all the resourses I found on This is really a great extra bonus!

I highly recommend this book for anyone who would like to have a clearer understanding of what the Bible means and what it can mean in your life. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
