This album is the first full blown concept album and the most ambitious work that Peter Gee has ever written, over a total of 69 minutes, the 66 books of the Bible told through rock music and narration, and includes many of the main characters contained within the scriptures.
"The Bible" contains a stunning array of musical styles from the progressive "Revelation", "The Kingdom Of God" and "The Prophets" to rock anthems "The Fall" and "The Law", from the haunting female vocal pieces "Adam And Eve" and "The Gospel" to the acoustic "Samson And Delilah" and "Exodus", from instrumentals "Jacob’s Ladder" and "Walls Of Jericho", to the groove based "Crossing The Sea" and "Spirit", and yet the whole album has a wonderful power and unity to it.
