Review: God's Big Picture: Tracing the Story-Line of the Bible

User Review  - Rachel Sumption - Goodreads

I want to read more scholarly work on the Prophetic books now! I learned some fun Biblical facts, and Roberts has a lilting, very British pace to his writing. An educated Christian book, good for believers of all ages. Read full review
