The Bible and Its Story
Julius A. Bewer, Charles F. Horne
Kessinger Publishing, Apr 1, 2003 - Religion - 392 pages
Volume 6 of 10; Poetry - Prophets, Psalms to Isaiah. This issue of the Bible aims to bring the Sacred Book more vividly before the minds of readers, especially young readers. For this purpose, all the great picture galleries of the world have been consulted and compared, and copies from over a thousand of the most celebrated religious paintings have been arranged in sequence so as to depict each successive step of the holy story. The poetical books of the Bible stand on a wholly different level of authority from the other portions. The Hebrews divide their sacred writings into three classes: the Law, the Prophets and the Hagiographa. The biblical books from Isaiah to the end of the Old Testament are united under the general name of the Prophets. The prophetic books are written mainly, though not entirely, in metrical form.
