Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Beaumont, a pastor and Bible teacher in Oxford, England, travels widely and lectures at various theological colleges and other similar venues. Beaumont's coverage of the Bible in this brief work is a topical, rather than the usual alphabetical, listing of terms. Readers are treated to chapters on the book's creation, stories, setting, nations, family life, and society. The title also covers the instances of religion in the Bible and what Beaumont perceives as its primary focus—the life of Jesus. Chapters are divided into subtopic spreads. The volume is particularly visually stimulating, with color graphics, maps, photographs, sidebars, and clearly delineated headings. Bible verses that supplement the subject matter in each section are highlighted and contribute to the credibility of the text throughout. The alphabetical index (referred to as a "fast fact finder") provides terms along with a brief description of each. VERDICT Overall, this engaging and colorful reference will be helpful to those seeking general knowledge of the Bible and its context and content. The layout and organization of the volume is friendly and inviting to anyone with an interest in this subject. Appropriate for both middle and high school students.—Annette Haldeman, Dept. of Legislative Svcs. Lib., Annapolis, MD
