Translated from the Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew, this third edition of the 1996 Bible was written with the Latin American reader in mind. Each book of the Bible contains a brief overview in simplistic writing, avoiding Castilian idioms. The appendixes also contain synopses of all the books of the Bible, a table of weights and measures, a reading guide, a list of biblical references for special occasions, a list of proper names, maps, and a concordance. A great addition to a lay reader's personal library and a perfect gift for Bible students. Also available in plastic or imitation leather. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
