Product Description

The size, complexity, and sheer scope of the Bible's story is intimidating to many. People come looking for truth, and all too often they become frustrated and unable to penetrate the redemptive story of God's love for humanity.

The Holman Illustrated Bible Handbook is specifically designed with overcoming these obstacles. It begins with an essay on "How to Read and Study the Bible" that orients readers to what they will encounter in the Bible's pages, and this is followed by a helpful introduction/outline to each of the Bible's 66 books. The purpose of these introductions is to help the reader see a unified theme throughout the Bible and to guide their reading. Studies indicate that reading comprehension is a key factor in understanding, and in addition to its introductory materials The Handbook provides these materials for each biblical book:
  • Identifies Key Texts
  • Key Terms
  • One sentence summaries of each book
  • Author and Date of each book
  • First audience
  • Occasion
  • Genre
  • Summary of each book's message
  • How the book fits into God's redemptive story
  • How each book affects the Christian understanding of God, Humanity, salvation, and more!
  • Principles to live by

Publisher's Description

Many who would be willing to search for truth in the Bible are intimidated by its size, the length of time it spans, the different languages and cultures within, or questions about the historical reliability and contemporary relevance of Scripture.

The Holman Illustrated Bible Handbook is designed with an awareness of the obstacles people have to understanding the Bible. It begins with an essay on "How to Read and Study the Bible" before proceeding to chapters that provide a thorough overview of each of the Bible’s 66 books, summarizing each one’s content, author, evidences of authenticity, and historical context.

In addition to the full-color maps, photographs, reconstructions, and charts that equip readers throughout the volume, a smartphone-accessible QR code is included for each chapter that leads to related online teaching from noted Bible scholar Gene Getz. There’s also an article by Jeremy Howard (general editor of the award-winning HCSB Study Bible) explaining how each book of the Old and New Testaments was accepted into the Bible.

    I have a Chronological study Bible and this little handbook in addition to a large Bible commentary. Why this handbook works well is because it's more of an overview of the books of the Bible. It's great to read this handbook on whatever book in the Bible you're about to read so you get a nice overview & enough background info to understand better who, what, when, and why for a particular book. It's perfect for new and returning Christians as it also has some good suggestions for how to study the Bible.

    LITTLE DISAPPOINTED IF YOU LIKE PICTURES, CHARTS, MAPS ETC YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK VERY NICELY DONE FOR WHAT IT IS. *** HOW EVER*** IT DOESN'T HAVE THE VERSE'S IN THE BOOK. ANOTHER WORD'S IT DOESN'T HAVE THE CHAPTERS OF THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE IN IT EITHER BY THE CHAPTER'S OR MORE IMPORTANT THE VERSE'S BROKEN DOWN. I HAVE A HALLY'S 1955 HAND BOOK AND IT HAS ALL THE CHAPTERS AS WELL AS VERSES BROKEN DOWN.
