Description
From the creators of the enormously successful National Geographic Visual History of the World, this insightful new resource is a veritable Who’s Who of the Bible and a vivid introduction to Judeo-Christian belief and identity. The National Geographic Essential Visual History of the Bible encapsulates a wealth of knowledge in an appealing, pocket-size format. Encompassing both the Old and New Testaments in more than 200 sections of self-contained, interactive spreads, it offers a wide array of text elements and vivid imageryק,000 illustrations in all. Organized into six major sections, the book covers Old Testament eras from the patriarchs to the Babylonian captivity, and New Testament history from the 12 apostles to the epistles of Paul. The book’s reference value is enhanced by fact-filled sidebars and timelines; numbered picture references that match each image with its historical context; and cross references to related topics at the bottom of every page. The Bible and religion have proved to be popular topics, and this latest offering—complemented by National Geographic’s successful "Mysteries of the Bible" TV series—is an essential resource for families, students, and scholars. Irresistibly priced at just $15.95 for a 500-plus-page hardcover with 1,000 illustrations, this handy little treasure will find a broad and appreciative market.
