With reference to the Bible, it has been said, ‘the New is in the Old contained - the Old is in the New explained’. The Fifth Gospel unpacks this statement. Using the land of Israel as a classroom, its history, physical geography, climate and culture as tools, this interactive and very engaging iBook provides a way people of any age can better understand God’s Word and its application and relevance to their lives today. Although written with the school student in mind, the Fifth Gospel is a resource I can also see being used in adult Bible Study groups and as reference material by those teaching and preaching God’s Word. I highly commend it to you.

A perfect tool to help students, young and old, to engage with the real-time events of God's redemptive action in our world. This is a must for teachers of the Scriptures.
