The Illustrated Guide to the Bible ...
The Illustrated Guide to the Bible distills the essence of this great work in more than one hundred illustrated commentaries on the major stories, places, characters and events, from the Garden of Eden and the suffering of Job to the Last Supper and the book of Revelation. This book begins with an introduction that brings together the latest scholarship on how the Bible was compiled and handed down from generation to generation, and discusses its far-reaching influence throughout history. The main body consists of two sections, one covering the Hebrew Scriptures and the extraordinary history of the Israelites, and the other discussing the New Testament and the life of Jesus. Each places its subjects in historical and geographical context, and makes comparisons of topics with corresponding myths in a variety of cultures. Boxes and sidebars provide interesting information on important themes and symbols. Detailed color maps, charts, tables, family trees, a glossary and a cross-referenced book-by-book summary of the Bible make this guide the essential companion for every home and library.

He has written a book about the Bible, and held positions of authority and was a teacher of theology and he did not believe the Bible. No wonder the Church in England is churning out atheists.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
