How would I find summaries for a Bible book? For example, how would I do a search to find a summary of chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3 and so forth of Bible book?

Not sure how you'd construct a search to find those. But I happen to have tagged a number of books in my library as BibleIntro as I've come across this type of book, and many of them do have at least book-by-book summaries, if not chapter by chapter.

So I've done a search in my library for "Chapter Three", "Chapter 3" among books tagged BibleIntro. Then I looked through those 89 results to find ones which were actual summaries of chapters. I've come up with these books which give what you want:

The Bible Panorama: Enjoying the Whole Bible with a Chapter-by-Chapter Guide

Holman Quick Source Guide to Understanding the Bible

How to Read the Bible Book by Book - this one sometimes chunks together a few chapters at a time, but it's mostly chapter-by-chapter

Summarized Bible: Complete Summary of the Old Testament

Summarized Bible: Complete Summary of the New Testament

For a bit more detail, summarizing verses at a time, for the Old Testament only, there's:

The Old Testament Survey Series

Other things you could search for in your library:

"thru the bible", "through the bible", "book by book", "chapter by chapter"; "survey"; "summary"

Well that's perfect and the only book I don't have in my library is The Bible Panorama. But not for long Big Smile

There used to be an English version, not sure why it was discontinued.

Milkman... LOL.

If I remember well, there was a poster that actually had the notes in English, and said he got it way back, I have looked for it but to no avail in L8.

You can perform Basic Search of type:bible-commentary (as a resource) for:

(Heading:outline WITHIN {Milestone <Bible Acts>})  OR (<Bible Acts> NEAR Heading:outline)

Some Outlines are not included within the milestone, hence the  NEAR term.

For individual chapters, you can try:

Heading:outline WITHIN {Milestone <Bible Acts 1>}

MM, LOL.

Sometimes things seem to be what they are not. If the devil disguises as an angel of light, can a true believer disguise (or be perceived) as a demon?

Good question, got to investigate it.

By the way some traditions think that the imperfect number (3 times) has more to do with 

Vicarius Fili Dei phrase, but that does not fit the seeming Biblical requirements.

This is helpful to me. Thank you Dave!

Have you tried looking at the Factbook entry for the book of the Bible? Here's a sample of Acts:

If you have my book, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, you  will find a brief summary of the contents of every Bible chapter in this resource.

Looks like you've come along way on the five dollar Christmas card present. Gift

Thanks again.

Hi MM:

maybe something from the following will be of help to you:

https://www.logos.com/search?query=the%20Bible%20book%20by%20book&sortBy=Relevance&limit=30&page=1&ownership=all

Thanks Hamilton. After fine-tuning my preferences I found that there are some in that loooooong list that I have and didn't know it. Funny thing about owning a "few" books. You or should I say me, can't keep track of all of them and once and awhile you'll be looking for a book online and discover that I've had it all along.

Thanks again Yes
