5.0 out of 5 stars An essential handbook ......, 28 Mar 2012
This review is from: The Lion Handbook to the Bible (Lion Handbooks) (Paperback)
... whether or not you belong to any religion. If you want to understand English or European art or literature, some familiarity with and comprehension of the Bible is necessary. The Lion handbook is an inroad to that comprehension, offering maps, photographs, historical and geographical setting concerned with this Book. There is a time line of civilisations, an account of various texts and versions, a depiction of everyday life of the period before the book-by-book analyses. These give a summarised narrative along with explanatory notes: for example when and why Paul wrote his epistles to the Corinthians. I find it illuminating, authoritative and clear; I learned many facts I did not know and would recommend it to any student of culture as well as to anyone of a religious persuasion, particularly Western. I lent my copy to a friend and didn't see it again for a year!
