Synopsis

The Barnabas Schools' Bible by Rhona Davies

The Barnabas Schools' Bible presents a continuous thread from Genesis to Revelation in historical, rather than biblical, order. Here there are retellings of familiar and less well-known Bible passages, including Psalm 23, the Lord's Prayer, teaching on justice from Micah and Paul's words on love. *Each story is of a suitable length and vocabulary level for collective worship and assemblies. *With its broad encyclopedia section, this Bible lends itself very well to individual classroom study. *There is a full contents plus an index of people and famous passages.
