3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect, 25 Jan 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The New Lion Handbook to the Bible (Hardcover)
The book is certainly very well done. It is full of excellent colour photographs with good introductions to each book in the Bible. It is also has a lot of information about the Bible before actually trying to interpret it e.g. The Bible today, Passing on the story etc.
However, different parts of the book are written by different people who all have their own views on interpretation (Mostly Conservatives and Liberals) and feel that their views are definitely right. This can be quite confusing when the authors are all telling you to believe in different things (For example one author tells us that Jesus actually performed physical miracles while another tells us that it is symbolic). It is probably better to hold your own views about interpretation than be told.
