About the Book

This easy-to-read biblical reference highlights times before, during, and after God’s revelations became written words. Key topics include ancient civilizations, Hebrew Bible, Jewish revolts against Rome, Roman world of Jesus, New Testament, and related interests beyond the Bible. The book concludes with a brief review of current countries linked to the Holy Land. Glossaries, timelines, maps, and an index assist the reader. The author’s intent is to unravel the somewhat bewildering and overwhelming information of the Bible. “The Bible and Beyond: A Connection to Related Media is a guide for understanding the Bible that simply cannot get enough praise. Author Judith Marie Judy is not a preacher or ideologist of a specific way to interpret the Bible. [The book] is an excellent reference that isn’t aimed at scholars but at everyone who wants a deeper connection and understanding of the Bible.” — The Moving Words LLC, Santa Maria, CA 93455 “Judith Marie Judy presents a sourcebook of the history, geography, and politics that surrounded and influenced Judaism and Christianity through their development over three millennia. . . . Judy’s breezy, conversation style carries readers effortlessly through the book. . . . Her personal reflections opening each chapter help give flesh to all the history and theology she’s researched, providing a tenderness that runs through this book that makes it different from other resource books. . . . Judy’s book has much heart.” — BlueInk Review

About the Author

Thoughts of God have been with me since a very young age. As a child, I remember feeling comforted while sitting beside my father during church services. My life progressed and at the age of thirty-five, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Metropolitan State College in Denver and became a reading teacher. Written words have long been my guide to other times and places. Studies at the University of Colorado led to advanced degrees. Following retirement from Denver Public Schools, I taught at Denver Community College and the University of New Mexico in Taos. Over the years, I developed and taught courses focusing on Southwest Culture for Adams State College, which took me to Taos in the summers. Then, while living there, I self-published an eleven generational biographical account of a local family: Life on Torrez Road A Northern New Mexico Family History. Later, I compiled and printed Family Recipes Mirrored in History for my family. Volunteer work included helping a beginning library and years as a church treasurer. Finally, I dedicated my time to write about the Word of God. With gratitude, I acknowledge the Divine Source and the power and love which has sustained me—always. Judith Marie Judy
