The Twice-Told Tale: Parallels in the Bible is the English version of a Hebrew work titled Parallels in the Bible, which is also published by Carta Jerusalem. As in the Hebrew version, the entire Book of Chronicles (I and II) appears in one column, with the parallel verses from other books of the Bible in an accompanying column on the same page. Parallels between books other than Chronicles are also included, such as parallel laws in the Pentateuch, later prophets' use of earlier prophets, and parallel psalms and proverbs. Words or phrases that are omitted in one source are represented by blank spaces of appropriate length in the opposite column. The Twice-Told Tale uses the classic text of the King James Version for this English edition.
