Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Gorgeous, coffee-table-size volume…will delight the eye. With sumptuous illustrations and clear explanations, The Illustrated Bible Story by Story brings the best-selling book of all time to life." – Journal of The International Society of Bible Collectors
Library Journal
Lavish illustrations are what we have come to expect from DK, and this latest volume, with its popping colors and layout, is essentially the coffee-table version of the Bible. Illustrated books on biblical themes, particularly books focusing, for example, on a single biblical story or art from a particular period, are in no short supply, but this one is notable in its size and scope. It is an excellent introduction to the narratives of the Bible and contains a smattering of sidebars and supplemental help. VERDICT A splendid confirmation gift or presentation book, a perfect addition to the pastor or priest's waiting room, and a good choice for students and adults seeking to learn about the Bible for the first time.
