Q: I have a Nepali girl who wants to know about the Bible and has requested a book to read about it. Anybody know of something good that would also inspire her to read the Bible itself?
A: Depending on her language ability and what she means by "a book about the Bible", Case for Christ might be a good one to introduce her to the core of Biblical teaching.
A: This might be a little unusual, but The Jesus Storybook Bible is a children's Bible with some of the best Biblical theology I've seen in that genre. It is a "kids book", but if she can look past that, it is surprisingly well written, the stories covered are relatively short, they cover key topics, and they all point to Christ. It will give her a good, reasonably strong overview of the Bible itself.
The HOPE DVD also gives a good overview of the Bible from Creation through Christ.
A: Maybe "The Story"? If she's good at English and into philosophy, "The Book that made Your World" is good too (but very very deep).
