    Self-Guided Tour of the Bible

    By Christopher C. Hudson

    My personal library has many (25+) books which are brief or complex Bible study helps. Not one of them compares to this 247-page treasure. After I saw it in the Rose Publishing catalog, I decided to order it since the description sounded like it might be useful in a general online Bible study I was developing.

    As one of the reviewers of Rose Publishing editions, I received this book free in return for an honest review. After spending about 30 minutes looking over the pdf version, I called my regular bookstore and ordered a copy. I only have one objection to the book: it only comes in paperback. However, this keeps the price below $20, so the trade-off may be acceptable if it wears well.

    Near the beginning of the book, the author suggested that you "think of this book as a resource." I would add it is a well-organized resource. The chapters are a walk through a "Bible museum" divided into Exhibit Halls. Each exhibit hall covers a specific aspect of Bible study.

    Biblical places are fully covered with pictures, maps, and charts. Further charts showed bodies of water, mountains, and deserts.

    In another exhibit hall, a chart shows Bible and world events. It shows Bible characters who may have lived at the time of King Tut. During the time of the Trojan War some very interesting leaders arose in Israel. The Mayan culture was growing in Central America during the time of some of the kings of Israel. Jonah lived at the time of the first of these European events that still occur today. The Colosseum in Rome was begun a year after a great tragedy for Jerusalem. (I know I got carried away with this paragraph but I'm a history nut.)

    Three thousand characters are named in the Bible. The book includes facts about 100 men and women. The book discusses "the Biggest Character of all - GOD!" It goes on to discuss the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    Exhibit hall 7 discusses Jesus throughout the Bible from the prophecy in the Garden of Eden to Revelation. The 8th exhibit hall "peeks into the future - Heaven, Hell, and Eternity."

    At the end of the tour, Exhibit hall 9 discusses the 8 basic themes of the Bible repeated in both the Old and New Testaments because "humans are hard of hearing...(and) prone to forget."

    Those of us who use Bible helps with our studies and teaching are always concerned with the doctrines expressed. In my general reading of the book, the authors seemed to emphasize our agreements rather than our points of conflict.

    The author urges us to "Read, Engage, and Apply" the Bible. I would suggest that this book would help a beginning Bible student or a Bible pro do all three.

    Imagine you are in a museum with a bunch of different rooms. You go from exhibit to exhibit learning and understanding more with each room you venture into. Well, that's exactly what Christopher D. Hudson did with Rose Publishing's "Self-Guided Tour of the Bible". Each of these nine "rooms" or sections in this book covers different topics such as an Overview, History, Geography, People, Major Themes and more. Each section skillfully navigates the reader to a greater understanding of the Bible. This book will likely be viewed as a book that is geared more toward people who are unfamiliar with the Bible, but at the same time, we often need a reminder of some of the points that are made in this book. Easy to read and very visual, this book is something I would highly recommend. I really like how it goes over how to study the Bible as well and includes ideas on how to study the different genres that are used throughout the Bible. I really appreciate how Rose Publishing allows for copies of individual pages to be made so you can use this in a classroom or small group setting. To me, that shows me a publisher that wants to share the gospel with the world. Love it! I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    A Fantastic Book About The Book

    I'm a big fan of books about The Book, especially well-written books that present the big picture of the world's best-selling book of all time. "Self-Guided Tour of the Bible" is one of the best books I've read in this genre. Christopher Hudson has done a marvelous job of taking the reader on a tour the Word of God in all its glory.

    There is a boatload of resources here for Bible readers of all levels. Whether you are new to the Bible or have been reading the Word for decades, this book will enrich your understanding of and love for Holy Scripture.

    I enjoyed every chapter, but I found two chapters especially beneficial. I commend the author for including Chapter 8, "Heaven, Hell and Eternity" because he actually provides a biblical explanation of not only heaven (which Christians should love to do) but also hell (which Christians have become increasingly reluctant to do). And Chapter 9, "Summarizing the Message: Major Themes in the Bible" gave me much delight. The author has identified eight "central ideas that permeate the Bible." This list alone is worth the price of the book. If you read the Bible carefully and completely, you'll find these eight themes taught repeatedly throughout the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. I love that the author included this section, and it is a wonderful demonstration of his gift of teaching.

    I give this book my highest recommendation. If you want to deepen your love for God by reading and studying His Word, this book will help you to accomplish that, for the glory of King Jesus.

    The Self-Guided Tour of the Bible

    Having been given a free copy I was asked by Rose Publishing to do a review on their book The Self-Guided Tour of the Bible. This work is a fantastic resource for anyone who is a serious Bible Scholar or just stepping out into the wonderful world of Gods written Word. My favorite features were how it was laid out in nine different exhibit halls of information covering all the books of the Bible and many of the most important characters. There was also an extensive treatment of the history and geography of the Holy Land. I have never read a better laid out book on the Bible so I have nothing to compare it to. It was full of insightful pieces about the life and times of Jesus covering from his birth and his return. This resource would be wonderful for individual Bible study. Overall I thought this book was extraordinary! I enjoyed reading it very much and feel I have learned many things I did not know especially about the land of Jesus during his lifetime. I strongly encourage anyone reading this to think about buying this resource
