    The New Lion Bible Encyclopedia


    Provides readers fresh insights into the message of Scripture

    The Bible has made a huge impact on people for thousands of years--and continues to do so today. But what is it?
    Why does it matter? How was it written, and how did it come down to us? What was it like to live in the time of Jesus, or even earlier? What did people eat and drink? What did they wear?


    This fascinating new book answers all your questions, and more. It provides an exciting guide to the people, the places, the events, and the ideas that make up the Bible. With its accessible text, full-color pages, illustrations, maps, charts, feature boxes, diagrams, and tables, all the information you could ever need is brought together in one volume to instruct, delight, and entertain. A final "Fast Facts" section brings key facts to the reader's fingertips.
