The Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. praises Essex:
“Few authors have the ability to combine solid biblical scholarship and exegesis with a down-to-earth writing style that brings the Bible to life for laypersons, makes sense to them, and provides them with helpful applications for 21st century living. Essex is one of those authors....I recommend her work to you and guarantee it is a ‘page turner!’”

*If purchased separately, this bundle would cost more than $60.00!
