This large-format book provides a highly visual guide to the contents of the Bible and its background. Each of the seventy spreads, arranged chronologically, contains short chunks of text - both explanatory and thematic - alongside a variety of photographs, maps or diagrams. Each spread also includes a coloured band indicating the appropriate Bible book and a timeline which enables the reader to see the historical context of the material. Cross-references are given to related topics elsewhere in the guide. This is an ideal point of reference for all those who wish to explore the rich background and contents of the Bible, especially those who prefer a strong visual approach.
