I bought this book, while reading it, I love it. The illustrations, maps and breakdowns are fabulous to better understand each book of the old and new testaments... Im so so happy that I found this website. The prices are beyond fair and selection is 2nd to none.
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.
I am happy to have such a supplement to my bible. The information supplied is phenomenal. I utilize this handbook often and find it to be very insightful. Definitely a good investment in my spiritual growth.
