I bought this book as a gift for a skeptic history professor of mine. He is a wonderful person and former Christian but has since became skeptical about God and His Word. Because this book has much history/archaeology, etc. I thought this Bible would be perfect for him. He was very excited to receive it and seemed very excited to read it. I hope and pray that he reads it and that God works on his heart.
This is not a book to read lightly, or leisurly. There is great historical help in understanding the Bible, with the how, where and when, and history of Bible we love, but often read piece-meal. Great for getting to know better what the Bible is all about, and why.
I was a history teacher for many years, for this reason I love tO see the historical connections and evidence that this Bible shows. It is a really great product and the quality is excellent. The price is the best I have ever found.
We have enjoyed this resource as an addition to our Bible collection. The archeologic information adds to the stories and puts in perspective the life and history during the time of Jesus. We highly recommend this Bible as we purchased the NIV version for our boys and the KJV for us. Thank-you Christian Book for your outstanding service.
