The Great Bible Discovery
Over the last few years, with the help of Amazon & Ebay, I've been slowly collecting 'The Great Bible Discovery' series of books, (originally published as Découvrir la Bible in 1983). There were 24 volumes in total, 18 books covering the Old Testament and 6 books covering the New. OM Publishing reprinted the whole of the New Testament as a combined book in 1999, but have no plans to reprint the Old Testament.
This collection of books contain some very good Bible figure reference, and they've proved extremely helpful over the years. One of my favorite artists, who worked on this series of books, is 'Paolo Eleuteri-Serpieri'. He has illustrated stories in books 1, 7, 8 and 19.
I was wondering if there was anyone out there who can help me to complete the set. There are six of the Old Testament stories that I still don't have. They are:
10. Elijah & Elisha.
11. Amos and the Righteousness of God.
15. Daniel, Ruth, Esther.
17. Jonah, Job, Ecclesiastes.
18. Pharisees Sadducees and Essenes.
If anyone has any of the above titles for sale, please email me!
Check out your church libraries, you might have a set gathering dust in the corner! The Old Testament books have red covers and the New Testament have blue, (see picture above).
Many thanks for your help!

I now have the full set thanks to Stefan Koelewijn in the Netherlands!
