This is a great book! Easy to read with lots of information about bible customs you never knew. What I like best is that it has an easy lay-out of one paragraph topics that have pictures and scripture references all right there. This is book is for anyone wanting to learn more about the bible! It's easy to read a little bit at a time and then put it down and pick up later. It starts with Genesis and takes you all the way through each book in the Old and New Testaments.

Great for any age!

A very easily accessible reference book. It brought a lot more context to my Bible reading. Definitely a book to keep close when reading scripture. I highly recommend it to anyone reading the Bible.
