Review:

In the straightforward simplicity of that patented Reader's Digest prose, Mysteries of the Bible explores the history, symbols, and miracles of the Bible. This is almost an encyclopedia, covering individual biblical and Christian topics from the Garden of Eden to the Shroud of Turin, from the parting of the Red Sea to the parables of Jesus. Liberally illustrated with art, photographs, historical maps, and timelines, this book is a fascinating and non-controversial supplement to the Bible for readers of all ages and Christian denominations.

Review:

Moses' parting of the Red Sea, Daniel in the lions' den, the collapse of Jericho's walls at a trumpet's blast, the miraculous breath of Elisha that woke a child from the slumber of the grave -- these and other legendary mysteries recorded in the Bible suggest a marvelous power that quickens the heart and touches the soul. With 143 short, self-contained, easy-to-read, informal articles organized into six sections and written by distinguished theologians, historians, and archaeologists the reader come closer to understanding the truths conveyed by the Bible's psalms, gospels, proverbs, and prophecies. Beautifully illustrated with ancient and classical art, and contemporary photographs, the articles are supplemented by time lines, maps, genealogies tracing the Tribes of Israel and the House of David, and a key to Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus. Mysteries Of The Bible is both a helpful and fascinating reference source and a compelling introduction to the wonders of the Bible. Highly recommended. -- Midwest Book Review
