This series provides a wealth of astonishing discoveries and unforgettable revelations.
Upheld as the literal word of God by some and the ultimate testament of mankind’s spirituality by others, the Bible has galvanized western history for over 2,000 years. For ages, it has provided a rich treasury of tradition, ritual and mystery that has engaged scholars as much as it has guided the faithful.
