The One Hour Bible Reviews

"This book is a brilliant and inventive taster. It introduces the reader to the actual words of scripture: no paraphrases, no 'stories of', just the revealed words of God so arranged as to give a hint of the wonder of the Bible in its full dimensions.', Sister Wendy Beckett


The editor, Philip Law, is Publishing Director at SPCK. His previous books include The SPCK Book of Christian Prayer (SPCK, 1995) and A Time to Pray: 365 classic prayers to help you through the year (Lion, 2002). `Any anthology is only as good as its compiler's reading list, and Law's reach is wide and his taste discerning.' Methodist Recorder
