From the Back Cover:

This new and informative handbook to the Bible is based around a book by book commentary on the Bible, but this will be written in an entertaining fashion, focussing on issues of relevance, and lightened throughout by a wide range of box-out sections, diagrams and suchlike.

In particular there will be a strong focus on items that use a concept-led presentation to bring new angles to things, such as “Questions, Questions” featuring witty interrogative-style analysis of both sides of an issue, or “Cultural Comparisons” giving key tourist guide style information on how today’s culture compares with that being considered.

All in all this handbook will aim to give all the required information and more on what the Bible is about, but to do so in an economical form and with a lightness of touch that makes it approachable without undermining its serious points.

About the Author:

The author of more than 60 books, Nick Page is nothing if not versatile. He writes for readers of all ages, on a wide range of subjects, including history, literary criticism, children's stories (traditional and original), novels and the life-story of a seventeenth century dwarf. He is best known for his Christian books including Tabloid Bible and The Bible Book.
