Bible Briefs

Welcome to our official Books of the Bible Series Collection. Download this series of short, highly readable pamphlets introducing the books of Scripture. Each pamphlet presents a concise (tract-size), stimulating introduction to a biblical book from either the Old or New Testaments to begin adventuring through the actual Scriptures.

Feel free to print out these PDF downloads and use them for group study, for personal Bible study, or as a resource for sermons.

Created in partnership with Forward Movement Publications, Bible Briefs is a long term project aimed at producing introductions to all 66 books of the Bible. As new research and insight into the Scriptures emerges, we will produce new, up-to-date pamphlets to be available alongside older, classic ones. As we press forward with excitement, we encourage your support by using and spreading the word about these materials. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Bible Briefs is a joint-venture between Virginia Seminary and Forward Movement Publications. Forward Movement has their headquarters at 300 W. Fourth St., Cincinnati, OH 45202, and are an agency of the Episcopal Church publishing the quarterly devotional guide Forward Day by Day and nearly 400 other pieces of devotional material for individuals and parishes.
