Endorsements

"The greatest adventure available today is that of walking through your Bible and making it come alive. This must-have book by Hays and Duvall brings clarity and simplicity to the greatest book ever written. Enjoy the adventure.
-Keith Chancey,
Director, Kanakuk Institute Graduate School and Kanakuk Kamps K-Seven

I have always appreciated and respected Duvall's and Hays's love for both the study and application of the Scriptures. Connecting words and pictures with God's redemptive story within its historical context is a priceless tool for both those studying and those teaching the Scriptures. This incredible resource will ignite both passion and knowledge for any student of the Scriptures. It will enable the reader to grasp God's Word in a more powerful, meaningful way, and it will offer practical insights and visuals that make the Scriptures come alive.

Fellowship Bible Church, Little Rock, Arkansas

    This review was written for The Baker Illustrated Bible Handbook.
    Baker's Book appears beautiful. The binding and pics and everything are great! It was even recommended in Christian Mag. Ads. What is wrong is the information within it's pages....ERROR after ERROR. I spent hours searching for correct answers to misquotes or dumb questions from Baker. (and I have only gone through the Book of Genesis). Maybe he is too intent on the NIV version of the Bible as he likes to quote it. I use the KJV. * Why ask why Jacob is called Israel.......God is the one who gave him this name when he wrestled with him in earlier chapters. * Why question Joseph's lavishing attention on Benjamin over his other brothers. Benjamin and Joseph had the same parents (full brothers) and Benjamin had nothing to do with the sale of Joseph years earlier. * And there was the problem with Sarah never seeing Iassc after he was a youngster according to Baker. I wish I could return this book but I have had it too long. Very expensive and not very helpful. If you truly study the Bible I do not recommend this book. Nancy
