"A Numismatic Journey through the Bible" is an attempt to bring the Bible to life in a new sort of way – by linking as many Biblical stories as possible to coins, many of which are common enough for us to be able to see, and often to actually own. In this way the author hopes to put readers in touch with events that, though they happened a long time ago, can still have great meaning for us today. The chapters are written in Biblical order. The Old Testament first, working through to the Book of Revelation at the end. Other material, relevant but not actually part of the Bible, is included in chapters between those dealing directly with the Bible itself. Each coin is illustrated with approximate values given in GBGBP and US$ and the book is packed with a wealth of background information about the Bible, in an easy to read style suitable for all ages.
