Description

Accessible, engaging and authoritative, this handsome hardback is full of colour illustrations, maps and helpful charts, bringing the story of God's dealings with his people vividly to life. After a helpful introductory section on the nature and composition of the Bible and how to read it, this handsome hardback takes the reader on an illuminating tour through all 66 books, sketching the principal themes, detailing the main characters and highlighting memorable passages or verses. Issues requiring more detailed attention are highlighted in boxes grouped together towards the back in order not to interrupt the narrative flow. There is also a handy fact-finder.show more
