Series: The Story
Many people today encounter strange events, names, customs and/or people when they pick up their Bible to read. The world of the Bible can seem very distant to modern readers, even if they are reading a contemporary translation. To help readers gain a better understanding of the world of the Bible, Zondervan has developed a one-volume, handy-size reference resource that will take readers from Genesis to Revelation and provide helpful insights along the way through the use of full-color photos, maps, charts, timelines, character descriptions, special articles on important biblical topics and background information about the nations, and places and customs that they will encounter in their reading of the Bible. What sets this reference resource apart from others is that it is designed to serve as a companion to The Story, a Bible that allows the events, poems, and teachings to the Bible to read like a novel. This reference resource is arranged according to the chapters as found in The Story with each section containing vital information for understanding the biblical text. The Story Reference Companion is a must-have reference volume for teachers and participants engaged in Bible study, especially those reading through The Story.

This companion guide has been invaluable! In fact, several of the ladies in the group ordered their own copy! It's easy to read and the information correct. I would recommend it.
menkensWilmington, NCAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5really beneficial & great resourceNovember 4, 2013menkensWilmington, NCAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Since doing The Story as a small group study was my idea, I was chosen to lead -- and not being a Bible "reader" until now, I was totally unprepared for the "challenge"! This companion has been wonderful (along with Participant's Guide & DVD) to help me learn and be "partially" prepared to lead the group each week. I have shared lots of material with the others who are at various stages of "Bible" knowledge. We are thoroughly enjoying the study! Thanks to CBD for having such wonderful prices on The Story!
