Though the Bible itself is a well-known book, there remain many things within its pages that are not well-known—things that have been overlooked or misunderstood. Sometimes nuggets of truth are buried just beneath the surface which, with a little digging, can be discovered! That’s what this book is all about.
Over 500 little-known truths about translations, quotations, words, people, places, and things.
