Overview


Written in non-technical language yet drawing on the latest fruits of study and research, this illustrated compendium starts with the "story" of the Bible, and then unpacks its various literary styles. Wisdom, chronicle, poetry, allegory, and apocalyptic elements are explained and illustrated. Sections on the Gospels and the great personalities of the Bible are supported by background historical and geographical information, and popular misconceptions about the Bible are also answered. Finally, there is a comprehensive summary of every book of the Bible, with suggested passages from each to read.
