Money of the Bible by G.C. Williamson

Today’s free book is G.C. Williamson’s The Money of the Bible, which discusses in detail money in the Old Testament, the Intertestamental Period and the New Testament. This book is now in the public domain. The frontispiece is so unusual that I have created a video about it.
