Summary

This special compendium brings the people, places and events of the Bible alive. Beautiful, classic illustrations capture the atmosphere and drama of the stories. Information panels provide a wealth of facts about everyday life in Bible times, and colourful maps set the stories in the context of the period.
The stirring dramas of the Old Testament are recounted, from how God made the the world in the Creation, to the trials of the Israelites in their quest for the Promised Land. The New Testament stories follow the life of Jesus from his birth to resurrection, and how the apostles spread his teachings around the world.
Supplementary notes explain in simple language what the stories mean, both within the context of the Bible itself and to people living today. This combination of stories and information gives a uniquely broad and accessible insight into the world of the Old and New Testaments. Charmingly illustrated with over 1390 colour pictures, this is sure to become a much-loved family reference.
