    "The Essential Bible Guide" is an overview of the Bible with information about the lands and peoples mentioned in the Bible. Much of this information can be found in a good study Bible. However, it would be useful for people unfamiliar with the Bible and its historical context who want a quick overview and those interested in New Testament Bible background information. The first section (pages 1-40) covered the climate, geology, agriculture, and transportation of the Fertile Crescent. The first half used technical terms and was so generalized that it wasn't very useful. The second half was more useful, but it wasn't tied into Bible events.The second section was a survey of the OT. It gave a brief summary of what is in each book (including traditional and critical views of when the books were written and by whom); a lesson on how the Hebrew Bible is arranged; a summary of who the peoples and lands mentioned; a who's-who list of the most mentioned/important people; a brief summary of events from Abraham to Ezra & Nehemiah's time; the Hebrew alphabet; and information about the Hebrew calendar.The third section was a survey of the NT. This section was very good at tying background information into Bible events. Even those familiar with the Bible may find this section enlightening. There was a brief summary of what's in each NT book (who wrote it to whom and why); an overview of weather, agriculture, and land forms (hills, plains, etc.) for Judea, Samaria, the Coastal Plain, Galilee, and TransJordan; an overview of the cities/lands and peoples mentioned; information about the inter-testament period; and a summary of the events with historical, weather, and geographical background information tied in. A few of the maps werent easy to use (due to lack of a easy-to-understand key or too much information). The full-color pictures were excellent.I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
