For many people, the Bible is a closed book. Yet the Bible contains some of the greatest stories ever told, and so much of its poetry and wisdom permeates our language and culture - in music, painting, literature and film. Testament is a highly readable abridgement of the whole Bible. Testament will appeal to readers of all ages and religious backgrounds - especially to those who may be curious to know what makes the Bible the world's all-time bestseller, a classic of world literature, and probably still the most influential book in print.
"'Reading the Bible from cover to cover is such a daunting prospect that few undertake it. Now, with judicious abridgement, the source of Jewish tradition and Christian faith is made accessible to the general reader. Testament is a brilliant concept that will reveal the excitement and profundity of scripture to a new generation.' Piers Paul Read 'For those who've been putting aside two years in later life to read the Bible from cover to cover, the good news is: the most important bits are here.' Jeremy Vine, Radio Two 'Testament deserves to become an indispensable resource for all who want to encourage biblical literacy, both within and without the church. The reader-friendly format, presenting a sort of canon within the canon, will help many rediscover the greatest book ever written.' Dale C. Allison, Jr., Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary"
