What is everyone talking about? What is this news being proclaimed in the market-places and preached in the synagogues? Across the Roman Empire, people are talking about a man named Jesus. He was put to death, but has been seen alive again. His followers joyfully announce that God has done this, and that God is offering new life to everyone. People who believe are living changed lives: they have been nicknamed 'Christians'. This ten-volume series uncovers the exciting real-life story of the Bible. Collect all the books in the Bible World series and build a reference library that you will turn to again and again. Get to know the people of the Bible - their land, their history, their lives, their heroes and their beliefs.show more
