The SPCK Bible Guide

Full Product Description

  • Looking for a wide look at the Bible?
  • This guide gives you a thematic Bible overview
  • You'll know more of the connections and contexts in God's word

'The SPK Bible Guide' is a handy, concise-yet-comprehensive map book to navigating the Bible.

Designed to be a user-friendly guide, this richly illustrated and easy to navigate guide provides Bible explorers with a road map to the knowledge, history and meaning of the entire Bible.  Quick and easy, each chapter of the Bible gets a one paragraph overview and its content and meaning summed up in between 1 and 3 key themes. This means you can follow the developments of any one of 18 key themes as they're unfolded to us through the Bible's writers.

But what makes this Bible Guide uniquely useful, is that each theme is the colour coded. This means you can look at a chapter summary, and from the colour-coded header know if its primary purpose is recording history, dispensing wisdom, assisting worship or expanding on one of the other 15 key themes. Using the flip page at the back, you can quickly and easily find all the chapters in the Bible that relate to any one of the themes - a real time saver when preparing for public ministry or private study.

Also included in this book are:

  • Introductions, overviews, brief commentary and chapter-by-chapter descriptions of the Entire Bible (including the Apocrypha - Tobit, Judith, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach & Baruch)
  • Every Chapter Colour-Coded with up to 3 Topics (Colours represent: Praise, Forgiveness, Moral Teaching, Mourning, Poetry, Parables, Prophecy, Miracles, Judgement, Love, Worship, Prayer, Apocalypse, Contract, Angels &
  • Demons, Inventory, History, Wisdom Literature)
  • Full-Colour Illustration Throughout, including Art Work & Artefacts
  • Extensive Index
  • Further Reading Section

This easy access, resourceful and comprehensive reference book will enrich teacher's lessons, save preacher's valuable time and enhance personal Bible study.

The SPCK Bible Guide by Henry Wansbrough was published by SPCK in February 2013 and is our 28574th best seller. The ISBN for The SPCK Bible Guide is 9780281069453.
