I am working with Celia Kellett at BBC Radio Nottingham on an idea to present most of the books of the Bible, one a week, during 2011 as part of the celebrations of the King James Bible. The plan is to read some verses from the book, to give a one-and-a-half minute summary, to hear a human interest story which relates, and then include a short discussion making the connections.
I will be adding links to the summaries here as they are broadcast and posted, and hope also in time to add the audio tracks so you can listen to the summaries again. I will also be adding other resources to help you get an overview of the Bible for yourself. I have collected a number of ideas here.
