I got this book thinking that it would be a Jewish or Christian presentation of the Bible. It felt like more of a presentation from a non-believing scientist. The text said things like, "the Bible claims..." and "Bible scholars assert, and some people believe...." Maybe I'm a little sensitive to language, but I found it off putting.

This is a wonderful book and unique in its design. The Bible is not presented book by book or chapter by chapter, but in the context of a person, place, thing, or event. You can use Amazon's "Look inside" feature to get an idea of the reading level and the quality of illustrations. It is a rather large format book even by DK standards 12x10. There's a lot of reference material such as a list of the kings of Israel and Judah. I am a Catholic and didn't detect a pro- or anti- slant to the material on the early Church. I own several reference books on the Bible and don't see this a duplicating any of them. It is sui generis.

If you're interested in learning the Bible in an easy and enjoyable format this book is for you. It is NOT the Bible itself. But rather an overview of all the major stories of the Bible. Probably not suitable for people interested in deep textual analysis, but a wonderful resource for anyone who has never read the Bible but would like a clear synopsis. Suitable for young readers and adults alike. I should mention that I bought the book and Barnes and Noble after discovering it on the shelf and thumbing through it. But it seems to be more reasonably priced on Amazon.

The book is a great coffee table book, filled with beautiful pictures and famous artwork. Bible is not written chronologically, but rather, by topic. Summaries of stories are concise and interesting. Objectively written and seemingly non-denominational.
Helpful index and fun trivia section in the back of the book. Makes for a great conversation starter or simply a page-turner as you peruse all the great illustrations.

I saw this at the bookstore but couldn't purchase it then. Glad I was able to find it on Amazon. A truly lovely book with full color pages and pictures to illustrate the information. Books, people, events are reviewed with information linking history through archaeology and Biblical reference. Coffee table size and one of the nicest and readable books on the Bible I have found in many years, if ever. Easy to read and to find specific information for reference. I highly recommend it.

This is the best EVER picture book for the BIBLE. Granted it is no the complete bible, but has such wonderful pictures and references to all the great stories and Gospels in the bible. I purchased 5 of these and gave as gifts. Everyone that received these was so excited at the beauty and the richness of this book. Go buy it and give as gifts to all of your loved ones =D

This is a beautiful book! I use it to get an overview of a particular Bible story BEFORE or AFTER I read my actual Bible. People just need to remember this is NOT a translation - it is a story-telling Bible. And it IS an adult-level read. I believe they make a younger version for the kids. I bought one of these for myself AND for my 20 year old son who was a bit overwhelmed at some of the Old Testament stories. He likes it a lot! There's a good amount of Bible history in the beginning.

The book is very well made, written, and illustrated. It brings to life the history of the bible with the colorful paintings and stories.
