From God's creation of the world to the Gospel teachings of the New Testament, this volume provides a wealth of splendid illustrations that bring to life familiar scenes and stories from the Bible. Painstakingly reproduced from a rare volume of German engravings, 179 illustrations offer detailed and imaginative renderings of 105 episodes from the Old Testament, including the fall of Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, Moses in the bulrushes, the slaying of Goliath, and many more.
Seventy-four scenes from the New Testament include the Annunciation and the birth of Christ, the wedding at Cana, the parable of the Good Samaritan, the raising of Lazarus, the Crucifixion, and a host of others. Each illustration appears on a separate page, accompanied by a heading plus a citation of chapter and verse and the text of those verses from the King James Version of the Bible.
Beautifully composed and rendered, with a Doré-like quality of timeless grandeur, these illustrations are an unsurpassed source of royalty-free art for designers and artists. In addition, this handsome volume offers readers of all ages a remarkably accessible treatment of the Scriptures.

Also, some of the pictures did not seem to be quite appropriate for the Bible story being referenced. We would suggest that the authors of this book take a look at the Gustave Dore' Bible illustrations and develop a Treasury of Old and New Testament Bible illustrations which would come closer to the type of illustrations which assist students in visualizing important elements of the most important lessons from the Bible.
