"A Visual Guide to Bible Events" is a companion book to "A Visual Guide to Gospel Events" (which focused only on gospel events, and the events it focused on were different than those covered in this book).
"A Visual Guide to Bible Events" takes different events throughout the Bible (Genesis to Revelation) and examines the significance of where each event happened. The authors pointed out previous Biblical events that happened on the site which brings new depth of meaning to the event or explained the significance of the terrain. They also explained cultural background information and included pictures of what the scene and location would have looked like. The plentiful full-color pictures and maps help the reader visualize the scene and location.
The book was written with a formal tone, but it's easy to follow. The majority of the authors' insights were solidly based in Scripture. While they did put some speculation in, it remained in the realm of the plausible. They did take the events of Genesis 1-10 as historical, but they also tried to locate Eden on the current world map so they apparently didn't accept that Noah's Flood was terrain-reforming. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting book.
This book has already been a most valuable resource for me as a teacher of BIble history. It is beautifully compiled and presented. The text is easy to read and understand, and appears to incorporate all of the latest discoveries and archeological finds supporting the Biblical text.
I love this book. I am a Sunday School teacher and am trying to take the children through a chronological trip through the bible. I have been doing this for my good as well as theirs. This book is a very easy read and yet packed with information in a chronological order. I have learned so much and it has given me a thirst to learn more. My children are thoroughly enjoying the class even though I do not do crafts very much. This book gives geographical looks of the areas and when I show them to the children they are learning that the places in the bible are real places that are still there today. I love the way it shows where the roads are and we follow them to the places the Israelites went. This book has been a blessing not only to me but to my sunday school class as well. One of my 9 year-olds told me that he felt like he was right there where it was happening. Thank you for a great book.
