Two SPCK Books About the Bible

SPCK has produced two wonderfully picturesque Bible resources for lay people and those beginning biblical studies.


First, The SPCK Bible Guide edited by Henry Wansbrough provides a summary of every chapter of the Bible, concurrently coordinated with a variety of themes. The pages include introductions to the biblical books, commentaries on key chapters, and filled with lovely photos from historic Christian art.

Second, The SPCK Bible Atlas is a wonderfully graphic collection of maps, pictures, artwork, and introductions about places in the biblical world, covering both the ancient near east and the Graeco-Roman world.

I keep these books at home and use them frequently when doing Bible reading with my kids, makes the biblical world come visually alive.
