ITS 70 COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS, ACCOMPANIED BY RELEVANT BIBLICAL TEXTS, TRANSFORM THE BIBLE INTO A LIVING BOOK, ROOTED IN ITS PROMISED LAND, PULSATING WITH THE LIFEBLOOD OF ITS CHOSEN PEOPLE. HERE ARE LAVISH PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE STAGE UPON WHICH THE BIBLICAL STORY UNFOLDS: ITS MOUNTAINS, VALLEYS, DESERTS, AND FERTILE PLAINS; PHOTOGRAPHS ALSO OF TE ART AND ARTIFACTS, CULTIC AND HOUSEHOLD OBJECTS, OF THE ANCIENT BIBLICAL WORLD: STATUETTES, WALL RELIEFS, FIGURINES OF SILVER, BRONZE, AND TERRA-COTTA, WITH THEIR IMAGES OF FERTILITY GODDESSES AND WARRIORS, WINGED-LIONS AND BRONZE SERPENTS, CULTIC SITES AND BATTLE SCENES. THESE ARCHAEOLOGICAL TREASURES OF THE BRONZE AND IRON AGES PROVIDE AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM THE CALL OF ABRAM (C. 1850 B.C.E.) TO THE DEFEAT OF BAR CHOCHBA (135 C.E.), FROM THE FIRST PROMISE OF THE LAND TO THE DESTRUCTION OF THE ANCIENT JEWISH STATE. IN BETWEEN, THE MAIN STAGES OF ISRAELITE HISTORY ARE VISUALLY AND TEXTUALLY RECORDED. AN INTRODUCTORY ESSAY BY THE DISTINGUISHED SCHOLAR CLAUS WESTERMANN PROVIDES A MASTERFUL OVERVIEW OF THE LITERATURE, HISTORY, AND THEOLOGY OF THE OLD TESTAMENT."
