Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801064244, Paperback)

According to this fascinating new collection by Jerry MacGregor and Marie Prys, the Bible is not only the world's best-selling book-it's also the world's most shoplifted book! Nine out of ten Americans own a Bible, and worldwide sales are uncountable. Yet, for its astonishing sales, how much do most people know about the history and contents of the Bible? 1001 Surprising Things You Should Know about the Bible illuminates the many characters, events, and exciting facts about this profoundly influential book. The information is unique, unfamiliar, true, and, best of all, fun! Readers will uncover intriguing tidbits about such things as: -how the Bible came to be -the Apocrypha -famous quotes about the Bible -New Testament writings -miracles of amazing proportions -festivals and holidays -angels in the Bible -music in the Bible With explanations brief enough even for busy readers, this resource is for everyone who enjoys history, theology, and interesting facts about the faith. 1001 Surprising Things You Should Know about the Bible will also come in handy for pastors looking for interesting illustration material.
