Accessible, engaging and authoritative, this handsome hardback is full of colour illustrations, maps and helpful charts, bringing the story of God's dealings with his people vividly to life. After a helpful introductory section on the nature and composition of the Bible and how to read it, this handsome hardback takes the reader on an illuminating tour through all 66 books, sketching the principal themes, detailing the main characters and highlighting memorable passages or verses. Issues requiring more detailed attention are highlighted in boxes grouped together towards the back in order not to interrupt the narrative flow. There is also a handy fact-finder.

Dr Peter Walker studied Classics and Early Church History at Cambridge University and has done extensive research at post-doctoral level on attitudes to Jerusalem in the time of both the Bible and the Early Church. For many years he taught New Testament Studies at Wycliffe Hall within the University of Oxford and was for five years Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity School for Ministry, near Pittsburgh in the United States. He has authored a dozen books and written numerous articles on Jesus, the New Testament and the Holy Land today, as well as on issues in the Anglican Communion. Peter is an ordained clergyman in the Church of England and has led guided tours to the lands of the Bible for over 30 years. He and his wife, Georgie, now live back in the UK and have two married children.
