'The Bible is one of the most important books in the history of the world. This book will take you on a journey through time. It is your chance to visit some of the most important scenes from Bible times.' This exciting time-travelling book combines fascinating facts and 'travel tips' with intriguing pictures and maps to take all young explorers on a guided tour of the ancient world of the Bible and its people. Drawing readers into foreign lands and epic journeys, from the beginning of time itself, they will be given a tourist's-eye view of the people and empires that provided the setting for the Bible's great stories. Each stop on the journey allows the reader to learn about the people and events associated with that place as well as offering astonishing glimpses of what archaeologists have uncovered. 'Travel tips' give useful information for the journey - what food and weather to expect, where to stay, what sort of festivals you might experience, and what souvenirs are worth looking out for!
