Zondervan Handbook to the Bibleby David Alexander
Synopses & Reviews
Discover fascinating, thorough, and enriching insights into the Bible with the best-selling and internationally acclaimed Zondervan Handbook to the Bible. From the history and design of the temple to God's relationship to the universe, you'll find it here. The land and cultures, battles and feast days, heroes and villains of Scripture all come alive through entries of meticulous clarity and detail, and breathtaking, full-color images. Previously published as Eerdmans Handbook to the Bible, this beautifully illustrated volume has been completely revised — text, photographs, illustrations, maps, and charts — and expanded by over a hundred pages.
Book News Annotation:
Through hundreds of color photographs and maps, this reference provides a visual as well as textual introduction to and reading guide for the Bible. The first section introduces readers to various ways to approach the Bible and reviews the setting and history of the Bible and the people it depicts. The majority of this volume goes through each Biblical text summarizing and supplying notes for further explanation. The Rapid Factfinder is basically a glorified index that allows readers to quickly look up specific people, places, and subjects.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This four-color guide to all the books of the Bible includes 119 expert articles, over 500 color photos, 68 maps, 30 charts, and a complete rapid factfinder reference section.
