Here is a fascinating 'guided tour' through the entire Bible, to read and to savour. Book by book, it draws out the important events, people, passages and historical setting - all in one comprehensive volume, without the need to cross-refer from Bible to commentary. Colourful maps, time-bars, charts and photographs attest to a living story, firmly rooted in real places and flesh-and-blood people. Mary Batchelor gives an overview of 2000 years of history and a succession of cultures, introducing the many kinds of writing brought together in the Bible's pages - history, law, poetry, wisdom, story, prophecy, biography. And she reveals how the lives and events, the emotions and revelations recorded in these ancient writings can help all who look for spiritual growth and understanding today.
Mary Batchelor is the author of The Lion Book of Children's Prayers and The Children's Bible in 365 Stories.
