Voya Reviews

The Bible is a beloved text owned by most Americans.

Itís on most everyoneís reading list, but itís not always read as often as many would hope. It can be a daunting work to master. But the new, easy-to-use companion The Handy Bible Answer Book makes this endeavor less intimidating with easy-to-understand explanations to common questions about the Bible. From its origins and history to the meanings of chapters, verses, and parables, this user-friendly guide avoids dogma and defines key terms, people, places, and events. It will bring richness and context to both experienced Bible readers and those reading it for the first time.

The importance of the Bible, whether as a master work of literature, a historical artifact, or religious canon, can not be overestimated. The Handy Bible Answer Book helps readers dig deeply into the Bible to analyze the foundations of Judaism, Christianity, Western civilization, and the teachings of Jesus. This comprehensive guide also leads readers through the Old Testament, the foundation for both Judaism and Christianity and the moral and political cornerstone for many nations of the Western world. It brings context and understanding by answering more than 1,300 commonly asked questions on the Bible, including: Have artifacts of ancient Egypt influenced biblical studies? Why are there two creation accounts? How did the wise men know to follow the star? What parable appears in the Book of Mark but not in the other gospels? and many, many more.
