Author: Maggi Dawn

Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
In an increasingly secularised society, the average person is unlikely to have a working knowledge of the Bible. The Writing on the Wall provides a fascinating introduction to the Bible's best-known, and most influential, stories. Each chapter gives the full text of a story from the Bible and explains its original significance, then shows how this story has become enmeshed in Western culture.
