Description

Here is a fascinating `guided tour' through the entire Bible, to read and to savour. Book by book, it draws out the important events, people, passages and historical setting - all in one comprehensive volume, without the need to cross-refer from Bible to commentary. Colourful maps, time-bars, charts and photographs attest to a living story, firmly rooted in real places and flesh-and-blood people. Mary Batchelor gives an overview of 2000 years of history and a succession of cultures, introducing the many kinds of writing brought together in the Bible's pages - history, law, poetry, wisdom, story, prophecy, biography. And she reveals how the lives and events, the emotions and revelations recorded in these ancient writings can help all who look for spiritual growth and understanding today.show more
