Where the World Began : The Lands of the Bible
Olive groves and vineyards...fertile hills set around a clear lake... gleaming white desert...thicket and swamp where wild beasts lurk... These are some of the varied scenes from the lands of the Bible - from the fertile flood plain of the mighty rivers Tigris and Euphrates to the irrigated fields bordering the Nile; from the smooth Mediterranean shoreline of the land of Israel to the desert stretching eastwards from the Jordan; from snowy mountain heights to the scorching valley where the Dead Sea lies glistening in the desert heat. 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.
