The A To Z Guide To Bible Signs & Symbols by Neil Wilson & Nancy Ryken Taylor
From the reading of the introduction of this book it has explained something I've long wondered about. The difference between sign (point or draw attention), and symbol (represent). This book has such life-like photos and they are simply breath-taking. It has an eye catching cover, but the best is inside. It goes into detail to explain the sign and what it means and the scriptures where it is found. Words we read or hear the pastor preach about, like "altar". What was its use and purpose? Where was it used? When were they used? Why were they used? Or what was the importance of the "Ark Of The Covenant"? Why is Babylon so prominent in the bible and what does her sign or symbol mean? You will have many hours of informative reading and reflecting. Good Reading!
I received a complimentary copy from Baker Books for this review.
