I BOUGHT THIS BOOK ABOUT 40 YEARS AGO. I REFERRED TO IT QUITE OFTEN. HOWEVER, OVER TIME, THE PRINT GOT TOO SMALL FOR ME TO READ. THEREFORE, I RECENTLY BOUGHT A LARGE PRINT VERSION OF THE BOOK, AND I LOVE IT! A FRIEND OF MINE HAD THE ONE HER DAD TOOK WITH HIM WHEN HE WAS IN THE CALVARY DURING WW2. SHE USED TO REFER TO IT WHEN WE'D DISCUSS THE BIBLE. HOWEVER, SHE WANTED TO PRESERVE IT AS IT WAS GETTING WORN. ALSO, THE PRINT IN IT GOT TOO SMALL, FOR HER TO READ COMFORTABLY SO SHE ORDERED THE LARGE PRINT VERSION, TOO. WE ARE GOING TO READ IT TO EACH OTHER OVER THE PHONE FROM COVER TO COVER. (WE HAVE READ THE BIBLE FROM COVER TO COVER OVER THE PHONE TWICE!) THIS IS NOT THE BIBLE, BUT IT SURE HELPS IN BIBLE STUDY. FOR ANYONE WHO NEEDS LARGER PRINT, THIS IS THE BOOK TO HAVE. ALSO, THE PRINT IS DARK, AND THAT HELPS, TOO. I'D SAY THIS IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS FOR THE AGES.
Halley gives good background information without being wordy and overly detailed. A good help for someone who doesn't want to spend a lot of time in a resource book but just needs the extra information offered here. The paper used is good and easily read. Good format to the book. Very helpful to the Bible student!
