SECOND EDITION OF KEN BRESSETT'S 'MONEY OF THE BIBLE'

Whitman also announced the July arrival of the 120-page 2nd Edition 
of Kenneth Bressett’s 'Money of the Bible'. The following is from 
the publisher's press release:

"Money and coins are mentioned many times, and in many places, in 
the Old and New Testaments. Author and historian Kenneth Bressett 
presents their stories and explores their relevance in the 2nd 
edition of Money of the Bible, a 120-page coffee-table book to be 
released by Whitman Publishing in July.

"“The 1st edition was very popular, and received glowing reviews,” 
said Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. “It won the 2006 Best Specialized 
Book Award for World Coins from the Numismatic Literary Guild.” 

"BookIdeas reviewer John L. Ho Jr. called the 1st edition “a wonderful 
reference book for church libraries.” Noted numismatic researcher David 
L. Vagi said, “We are fortunate to have this book, which is nothing 
less than the fruit of decades of careful study by one of our field’s 
most distinguished authors.” 

"Author and scholar Dr. Paul Rynearson, who wrote the foreword to 
the 2nd edition, said, “This reference makes coins come alive, 
visually expanding Biblical texts, while the beautiful photographs 
of historical places and artifacts make the words resonate in our 
hearts. You will discover fascination on every page.” Rynearson 
continued, “Money of the Bible has established itself as a most 
valuable reference and sumptuous art book dedicated to both numismatics 
and Biblical studies.”

"The 2nd edition of Money of the Bible is updated with new photographs 
and new research. The book studies how the Bible was written, and 
its nature; commerce before coins; coins of Old Testament times; 
coins in the New Testament; first-century money and trade; coins 
mentioned in Jesus’ parables and lessons; coins and the Passion of 
Christ; the beginning of Christianity; coins with Biblical themes; 
and how to collect Biblical coins. 

"Money of the Bible, 2nd edition, will be available in July at 
www.WhitmanBooks.com or from hobby shops and bookstores nationwide, 
for $29.95."
