This book is a must have. It is a handy reference book that gives enough background to set the scene for what exactly was going on at the time in history when each particular book of the bible was written. I've included in my daily devotions.
When I received this little book, I was amazed at the Quality and Value. It went way beyond my Expectations. It is a wonderful little companion book to read along with the Bible. I let my grandson carry it to Church and others who saw it were asking where we got it and they too were amazed at the Quality. The pictures are very nice and there are plenty of them. I would definitely recommend the Holman Illustrated Bible Handbook to Friends.
