With three million copies in print in twenty-eight languages, The New Lion Handbook to the Bible has earned an outstanding reputation as the most helpful and accessible guide to the world's all-time bestseller: 'the best book to have next to the Bible'. Now the Handbook has been revised and redesigned in every detail - text, photographs, illustrations, maps and charts - and expanded by over a hundred pages, taking full account of the major advance in biblical studies since the book first appeared. The new book also has over a hundred special articles by leading scholars from around the world, including character studies of important biblical figures and advice on how to approach the different kinds of writings - story, poetry, prophecy, history, wisdom, apocalyptic - that appear in the Old and New Testaments. All the revisions have been carried out with the needs and interests of a new generation of readers clearly in mind, and written by those who have discovered the riches of the Bible themselves and want to share them with others.
