FROM THE DUST JACKET: "THE BIBLE: A PICTORIAL HISTORY. THIS MAGNIFICENTLY ILLUSTRATED BOOK CAPTURES THE HISTORY OF ANCIENT ISRAEL IN WAYS NO WORDS CAN MATCH. 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."

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
