Bible Facts

Candle Discovery Series

by Anne Adams, edited Tim Dowley


Price: £4.99
Publisher:Candle Books imprint of Lion Hudson
Published:Spring 2010
At 180mm x 180mm, this is a handy sized reference book with young people in mind but just as useful for those of any age. Many of the illustrations are re-worked from other titles in the Candle Discovery Series) but this is fine, many readers will not have met them before and they are so good that the more people who see them the better!
Arranged in subjects such as Houses: Weddings: Spinning & weaving: Travel and many, many more, you will learn a lot by just browsing through. You will learn much more by carefully reading through, it really is packed full of information to help you imagine life in Bible times. This in turn will bring to life your Bible reading. I am a fan of anything with Tim Dowley’s name attached, and this too is excellent.
