5 Stars Out Of 5
Excellent for Pastors to Home School
April 9, 2014
Absolutely Excellent. Have you just wanted easy quick cultural facts about the life and times of Jesus at your fingertips, to help you fill out what you are reading, studying, teaching or preaching about?. This book provides that. This book would be a great resource for anyone. Writing is geared to the 8-12 year olds, but don't be insulted: rejoice. If you are a pastor, sunday school teacher, bible study [alone, group, leader, participant], [Even Seminary] Student or home schooler this book can help you: it can show you how to use simpler non academic language. This book has well written short definitions of places, people, animals and expressions found in the Bible with scripture verses for each one. It has a section about the development of the Bible and a third commentary section on many of the old testament books [not the apocrypha] and all the New Testament Books of the Bible. The last section has ideas for how you can study the Bible on your own. It is a Bible Dictionary (encyclopedia) and Handbook with excellent color photos and glossy pages. I would like it in hardback.
