Item description for So That's in the Bible? by John Perry...
Overview Does the Bible really say anything about Credit Cards? Downsizing? Fashion? Media? AIDS?
Yes! And about capital punishment, abortion, animal rights, spouse abuse, environmental protection and every other topic on the front page of today's newspaper.
While those words weren't around when the Bible was written, the issues they address were. So That's in the Bible? guides you to specific spiritual viewpoints on the questions Christians face today in the real world.
So That's in the Bible? is also packed with extra features including: *In Other Words - Quick, complete definitions of common terms you hear all the time, but may not fully understand. *For the Record - Brief, yet detailed information on selected topics. *Bible Bios - Revealing thumbnail biographics of the Bible's most colorful characters. *Daily Life - Who was allowed to ride in a chariot? What did the average Old Testament family eat for supper? It's all here and more. *Strange but true - There are few, if any, bald men in the Bible; where the phrase "Land of Goshen!" came from; Dodo is a term of endearment; and other fascinating details. *Plus Where in the World? Now You Know, Heart Words and more!

A Fine Work of Evangelical Scholarship Dec 29, 2003
This book accomplishes what it sets out to do: make Bible study fun. Learning something important and having a good time doing so are among the greatest joys in my life. Highly recommended!
Excellent easy way to find what the Bible prescribes/says. Nov 15, 1998
Quite different from ordinary concordances, this one makes finding what the Good Book says about life and living as easy as 1-2-3. It covers almost anything that could possibly occur in our daily lives. This author really went all out to make Bible study or simply finding a verse a breeze.
