THE NEW TESTAMENT MADE ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL YOUR STUDENTS
Although the Bible is used by almost every student during their school career it is not intrinsically easy-to-use. The 'Collins School Bible' is unique in that it presents the New Testament as a normal and essential reference book and makes it accessible to every student across the whole secondary range.
Text is printed in a larger type size and headings and chapter titles are clear, making it easier to read and to find particular passages. The text is also interspersed with quality photographs, maps and diagrams which make it even more approachable.
The 'Collins School Bible' contains notes on every book of the New Testament and background text on the people within them as well as a glossary. The extra information provided in the Gospel section in particular, including icons that immediately identify parables, miracles and teaching, and cross-referencing between the Gospels, makes the 'School Bible' particularly valuable to GCSE students studying Christianity.
Information is also provided on important social issues with biblical references and explanations of their meaning. The 'School Bible' is an indispensable reference for every student of every religion.
