Illustrated Everyday Bible Companion

by George W. Knight & Rayburn W. Ray

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Just like Winnie-the-Pooh wanted a useful pot for Christmas, the Christian will want this useful book. The Illustrated Everyday Bible Companion will meet even more needs than Pooh’s useful pot – for individual study, teachers and mentors, family readings, Bible studies, and other group studies. This compendium joins a concise Bible dictionary, concordance of important Bible words, handbook of the entire Bible, explanations of Bible customs and curiosities, full color illustrations, maps, and an in-depth index. Deeply embedded in the Bible, using recent scholarship and discoveries as well as old tried and true data, this Bible Companion really is helpful.

The layout of this reference book makes it easy to use: dictionary and concordance with other helps, all with references to relevant Bible passages; next is a book by book, passage by passage tour through the Old Testament and the New Testament. Throughout are found helpful sidebars and illustration explanations with additional, pertinent, and engrossing information.

If your bookshelf doesn’t contain such a gallimaufry of Bible information, or if you are interested in acquiring a very modern one, The Illustrated Everyday Bible Companion is for you. I haven’t finished reading it yet, and don’t expect to for a long while. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book
