People of the Bible Icons for Today by Nigel P. Bavidge, Sue Cooper, Paul Mannings, Kathleen Stead

People of the Bible: Icons for Today is a flexible Scripture resource developed by the National Project and published with the authority of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales. It supports and extends the teaching of Religious Education at Key Stage 3. Engages students with the Bible through an understanding of how it developed and how it is important today. / Encourages reflection and discussion of the great men and women of the Bible through the retelling of their stories, the issues they faced and the lessons learned. / Provides an ideal springboard from the teachings of the Bible to their relevance in today's society. / Trusted and comprehensive content written by Religious Education specialists and Scripture scholars.


I would use it with KS3 classes to illustrate and bring to life the challenges people of faith have encountered before us. The book is designed exceptionally well and the illustrations really bring the characters to life. It is a wonderful resource to use when planning -- thought-provoking, stimulating and thoroughly engaging. For non-RE specialists it is an ideal resource to use when planning. -- Michael Flannery, St Benedict's Catholic College, Liverpool. This book helps teachers to use the Bible well in class. It means we are giving pupils access to important and colourful personalities in the Bible that might otherwise be missed. There are thoughtful illustrations -- good mix of modern and Biblical images. -- Mr Turner, Head of Religious Education, St Mary's College, Kingston Upon Hull
