From The Publisher:

Whether you are familiar with the Bible or exploring its pages for the first time, Nelson's Illustrated Bible Companion is an indispensable guide to this collection of books written by different people in times and clutures far removed from our own. Philistines, Cannanites, tax collectors, Roman soldiers, Jacob's well, Pharisees, desert caravans, temple worship, Armaggedon, animal sacrifices, Samaritans sometimes the Bible can seem like a crazy quilt of strange people, odd customs, and mysterious events that are difficult to understand in a modern world of satellites and skyscrapers.

M. K. Batchelor offers a knowledgeable and clear guide to this Book of books. The author says,"Even a quick glance at the pages of a Bible makes it obvious that we are plunged into a world that is largely foreign to us. The culture is that of a bygone age and, for most readers, of far-away people. Yet millions find the Bible highly relevant today. Clothes and customs may vary, but people are the same, deep down. All share the human urge to understand the meaning of life and to have their deepest needs satisfied."

From Genesis to Revelation, Nelson's Illustrated Bible Companion offers a colorful tour through 2,000 years of biblical history and a succession of cultures, introducing you to the many kinds of writing brought together in the Bible's pages history, law, poetry, wisdom, narrative, prophecy, biography. It explores what the Bible has to say, why it has such an important place in Western culture, and how its abiding message speaks to men and women today.

Clearly written, with full-color photos and illustrations on every page, this guide gives you a book-by-book overview of the Bible, helping you put the people, places, and events of the Bible in clear perspective. Photos, illustrations, sidebars, charts, and maps make the real places and flesh-and-blood people of the Bible come alive. Excerpts and brief summaries highlight important ideas, themes, and events, enriching your overall understanding of the Bible.
