Money of the Bible Jun 5, 2008
Outstanding book that creates a logical, inspiring path of the money used when the Bible was written. Illustrations are colorful, it's like bringing the money into your home.
A nice book on Biblical Coins Dec 29, 2006
This is a very nice book on the coins that are mentioned in the Bible. The author does a very nice job of describing and using clear photographs of each coin. He also does his best on narrowing down what each coin could be in the Bible if it is not clear. For example, The "30 pieces of silver" that Juduas Iscariot received for betraying Jesus could be one of a few different coins and the bible does not state which coin or coins they were. However, he describes the most likely coin that was used based on what was in circulation at the time, etc.
Could have been more on: 1) The author could have also described what other coins, such as the "30 pieces" mentioned above, it could of been. Experts tend to agree with the author's choice but also state that the coins could have also been other coins. 2)The author could have also suggested where the reader can purchase some of the coins more specifically.
All in all, well worth the price and a GREAT coffee table book.
