Description

Who wore a coat of many colours? Who killed the giant Goliath? Who was thrown into a lions' den? Who were the twelve disciples? Who's Who in the Bible is the perfect introduction for young children to the key figures of the Old and New Testaments. The book takes readers on a fascinating journey through the Bible by telling the amazing stories of the people who appear in it. Children will meet all the well-known characters, such as Noah, Moses and Paul, as well as many less-familiar ones, such as Deborah, Josiah, Cleopas and Dorcas. All the Biblical figures have a separate page devoted to their story. The story-telling style of the text enables complex issues and messages to be understood and absorbed by the reader simply and with enjoyment. Stunning artwork brings the adventures, struggles and achievements of the characters to life. An introduction, which contains maps with which to locate the Biblical characters, welcomes the reader to the Bible and its figures. A comprehensive index of names enables the reader to cross-reference people to discover more about their lives, and a glossary explains, in simple terms, words or phrases that may be new or confusing to the reader. Simple Bible references are included for extra reading.show more
