Description

He’s travelled as far as China, throughout Central Asia, and to India, taking beautiful colour photos. How did an obscure sect in first-century Palestine flower into the religion of a third of the world? Each volume has been blocked in a different metallic foil which echoes the colour of the original crosses. From a police procedural set in World War II Berlin to a man pushing his in-laws off a wall in Ningbo, the variety of settings for crime fiction continue to provide a lot of opportunities for armchair travel. His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages.

The New Oxford Annotated Bible, with twenty new essays and introductions and others--as well as annotations--fully revised, offers the reader flexibility for any learning style. The Lost Letters of Pergamum imagines an exchange of letters between Luke, the evangelist, and a fictional character Antipas.The great strength of the book is that it covers, in sufficient but not oppressive detail, huge areas of Christian history which are dealt with cursorily in traditional accounts of the subject. Was there a big change in Scotland between the pre- Reformation period and the post-Reformation period, or was it always quite strict and dour?
