The Bible in World History : How History and Scripture Intersect
Series: Illustrated Bible Handbook Series
Author: Stephen Leston, Christopher D. Hudson
What was happening outside Bible lands during the time of the patriarchs, Jewish kingdoms, the prophets, Jesus’ ministry, and the early church? Find out with The Bible in World History. This brand-new, fully illustrated reference breaks biblical and early church history into eight major time periods—from “Creation to the Tower of Babel” through “Anno Domini,” the years from Jesus’ birth to about AD 330—and shows what was happening in other parts of the world during those times. With references to Chinese, Indian, African, and Mayan cultures, among others, The Bible in World History will help you see how history and scripture intersect.
Expansive. Illuminating. Colourful. With clear diagrams, pictures, and photos strategically placed throughout, this book is a pleasure to behold. Unlike some encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, or similar survey of biblical history, this book packs a wallop without becoming too bulky to carry. Convenient to carry around, the reader will be captivated by the beautiful illustrations, and the clear point by point explanation of the Bible in history. The author's main purpose is to understand world history through the Bible.
Believers who are also history buffs will appreciate this side-by-side presentation of biblical and world events. Although pastor Leston is not a history professor, he clearly outlines how Scripture is historically grounded and impacts world culture.
From its beautiful paper to its color photographs and illustrations to its detailed maps and timelines, this book is a gem.
