From Library Journal
In The Bible Guide, Knowles (Chelmsfort Cathedral and St. John's Coll., Nottingham) provides insight, time lines, chapter outlines, and context to create what he calls a simple companion guide to the Bible. Generously illustrated and written in straightforward prose, it will appeal to Bible readers seeking more direction for study. Knowles stays close to the text, often offering an idea-by-idea running commentary that tends toward description rather than historical/critical analysis. His use of Christocentric dating conventions and the Old Testament rather than the Hebrew Bible marks this as a popular work. Many general survey books are available John Bowker's The Complete Bible Handbook, for instance, does essentially the same thing but is even glossier and more heavily illustrated but Knowles's is an acceptable choice for libraries that do not yet own a one-volume Bible handbook or whose current handbooks lack visual images.
