The A to Z Guide to Bible Signs and Symbols

How might our understanding of God's Word be deepened if we recognized the significance of the signs and symbols found within its pages--signs that were clear to the original readers? Throughout the Scriptures, signs and symbols weave a consistent message of God's presence, grace, and faithfulness. This illustrated resource will help you appreciate key biblical images that reveal God's purposes and truth, such as

· Babylon
· beast
· candlestick
· eye
· fire
· grapes
· Jordan River
· key
· pigs
· sword
· throne
· and much more

Each of the more than one hundred entries includes multiple illustrations, explanations, and key Bible passages. Sidebars, quotes, and photos make this guide approachable and engaging.

Neil Wilson is the author of several books, including Were You There? and The Handbook of Bible Application. A graduate of Aurora College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Neil has ministered in Youth for Christ and as pastor of a local church. He currently serves as a publishing project manager with Dr. James MacDonald's ministry Walk in the Word.

Nancy Ryken Taylor is a freelance writer and editor who has worked behind the scenes on hundreds of books for many publishers, mainly in the areas of theology and Christian living.

My thoughts...

What I like about this book is the pages are loaded with symbols and their meanings along with history and scripture. Interesting reading, enough info to make you want to dig deeper into the Scriptures. Very well presented, attractive, and meaningful.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
