This fascinating theme is presented in an equally fascinating large-format volume incorporating:
Biblical accounts from the Old and New Testament.
Modern commentaries, not only concentrating on the current status of theological enquiry, but above all answering questions asked by the 20th century man and woman in the street.
Texts from early non-Bible sources (Talmud, Koran, etc.), pertinent stories
from legends of various religions.
Extracts from works of great authors.
Richly illustrated with works of art, paintings, sculptures and bock-illuminations.
