About Illustrated Family Bible: Understanding The

Product Description Updated and revised with new typography and refreshed illustrations, DK's Illustrated Family Bible takes a new visual approach to understanding the Bible that will inspire the whole family. Using original text from the New International Version, this richly illustrated and accessible Bible offers interpretation of the most important stories of the Old and New Testaments — from Abraham and the chosen people to the birth of Jesus and the Revelation. Superb artworks convey the drama of the Bible texts, bringing characters and places to life, while comprehensive background information, including maps and photographs, set the stories in historical, social, and geographical context. Highlighted panels explain key words, phrases, and concepts within the text, with clear chapter and verse references encouraging young readers and families to think and learn, making for a wonderful and meaningful introduction to the greatest story ever told. Amazon.com Review Whether you see the Bible as a literal revelation of God's word, a guide for life, or a wonderful set of stories, The DK Illustrated Family Bible--a colorful, accessible reference source---can be the cornerstone of your family's knowledge of scripture. Based on the modern English of the New International Version Bible, this stunning, lavishly illustrated 384-page book is an interpretation of the Bible rather than a complete edition. The most important stories, such as "The Tower of Babel" and "The Sower," are presented chronologically with full-color illustrations supported by helpful captions. Each story is complemented by illustrated side panels explaining key words and concepts, as well as by photographs of actual sites, artifacts, and works of art. The people of the Bible are defined in appendices for both the Old and New Testaments and throughout the text as needed. The production team for the book included advisors from different denominations, ensuring that all faiths are treated with equal respect. Jewish and Middle Eastern history and traditions are explained in context, providing a better understanding of the period and the rise of Christianity. As a reference for both youngsters and adults, this beautifully designed, thoughtfully arranged book offers a superb introduction to the basic Biblical stories and to the significance of the Bible. (Ages 10 to adult) Review This new visual approach to Biblical stories and interpretations provides color photos of places and artifacts to supplement retellings of the Bible stories. The idea is to place the stories within their social, historical and geographic context: chapters use original texts selected from the New International Version of the Bible. -- Midwest Book Review About the Author Peter Dennis is an artist and illustrator based in England.
