The Children's Illustrated Bible
To help explain the stories and set them in their historical and geographical context, background information is included, together with colour photographs and maps of places mentioned in the Bible. These include places associated with the main events of the Bible, such as Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments, and the shores of the Sea of Galilee, the setting of many Jesus' miracles. Photographs of people, plants, animals, and artefacts are also featured; the lilies of the field, the cedars of Lebanon, and the kind of gifts the wise men might have brought to Jesus. The combination of colour photographs and illustrations gives children an exciting and completely new visual approach to the Bible. The Children's Illustrated Bible has been carefully prepared in consultation with a panel of educationalists, scholars, and religious advisers.
