Dewey5 Stars Out Of 5Rose Book of Charts, Maps, and Time LinesMarch 27, 2017DeweyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Its not very often that I say a book is amazing. But trust me, this book is amazing. Never have I seen so much material presented in such an easy-to-access, right-at-hand format. Seriously, navigating the Rose Book of Charts, Maps, and Time Lines could not be easier. Want to access the vital information including the Who? What? Where? When? and Why? of each book of the Bible, a Key Verse from each book, as well as each books outline concerning, say, the Historical Books of the Old Testament? Its all right there in one handy side-by-side chart format. The maps are superbly drawn, with Then and Now renderings that place biblical events in their own and present-day geographical contexts. The Time Lines identify key biblical events within the framework of other historical happenings contemporaneous with each Scriptural circumstance. All in all, this volume is a masterful piece of work. And in all honesty, though I have a library of dozens upon dozens of reference works, this one book is my #1 go-to overview and quick-reference resource because of the ease with which I can find the answers to my most pressing questions. Add to that the fact that with Rose Publications, one purchase provides a hardcopy and reproducible PDF of the entire book, you have in the Rose Book of Charts, Maps, and Time Lines a true masterpiece indeed.
The Barefoothomeschooler5 Stars Out Of 5Rose Book of Bible Charts, Maps & Time LinesJanuary 26, 2018The BarefoothomeschoolerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I chose this to review, the reason why I wanted it, was because I homeschool. Ive been homeschooling for about 17 years now. My kids, now, range from 22-3 and studying the Bible is always a priority on our to do list.
Lets face it, though, sometimes when you are a kid..the Bible can be boring. It can drone on and on (the Book of Numbers).you havent gotten to a point where the verses and the stories leap off the pages.
My oldest girls have always devoured it. My youngest daughterwellshe is getting there and my boys.well, its a struggle. They do it and sometimes, when they have been particularly salty that day, Ill pick a small book of the Bible to write. Now, when that happens, I get flooded with questions like what is this word, what does this mean, did this really happen, wow mom did you know this? I love it. What was a poor choice and a discipline ends up being a good conversation and the kids can meet the Living God.
One year, I bought a Temple book so we could recreate it. Little did I know that the pieces were the size of a snowflake.all tiny, all fragile, and none were the same. That led to an intense try and then we all went a bit psycho.
This Rose Book of Charts, Maps, & Timelines was just what I was looking for. It is full of colors and picturesthe area where it talks about Jesus is all bold and in red. It is eye catching and my kids love it. They can take it and relate what they are working on, in their history book to what was going on in other parts of the world. There are 250 pages of history entertwined with more history and current pictures mixed in with drawings of the past.
My kids LOVE history but they never paralleled history with Jesus time. For some reason, that set that time apart and then history happened in the like 40s. I kid you not. They also think I lived next door to Laura Ingalls :/ Whatever.
This has worked across the span of all our kids and I do have some with learning and cognitive disabilities. Even those kiddoes can grasp the concept and I think a lot of that is due to the striking colors (Im a sucker for how things are packaged and illustrated).
I encourage you to consider this as a supplement to your history, Bible, or just for the fun of it. You will not be sorry.
I received an advanced copy of this product from Rose Publishing for review.
PIKNIKCanadaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!February 27, 2015PIKNIKCanadaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleMy reaction, as I went through the amazing tables and charts and timelines in the first part of the book, was a combination of "Hallelujah," and, probably, also, a sanctified "Triple-Wow!" I was so happy to see facts immediately at hand. Probably, if someone is preparing a Sunday School lesson, as I often am, or a preaching message, as so many others are, it is not so much the major facts of it that are the puzzle, since we study those assiduously. It is the supporting facts, or supporting settings, and, since one studies those secondarily, it can take a lot of time looking them up and verifying them. This, I think, is one place that the Rose Book of Bible Charts, Maps and Timelines comes in. There is quick verification, right at hand, with no need to spend valuable time better spent on the main theme, on the supporting details.
This might, of course, be but one of the functions of this book. I am sure that a person who is simply browsing might also learn a great deal in that process. To tell the truth, were there not preschoolers present around my coffee table quite frequently I sort of remember some small damage I did to a Bible Dictionary, at the age of four or five I might even want something like this as a coffee table book. I am sure sales of it would soar, since all my believing friends would want one of their own. I believe, however, that my unchurched friends would be quite taken with some of the sections, such as those about proofs of the Bible, or, perhaps, those about the different translations.
And, what about apologetics, generally? If you are like me, the facts of apologetics tend to float around in a nebulous mass in my mind, unless I am, during that precise week, involved in reading something like "Evidence that Demands a Verdict, by Josh McDowell. I remember the evidence, but, at the same time, somehow do NOT remember it -- a look at some of these charts, however, brings it back!
And, what about the timelines? If we have the tendency to place our Hebrews building pyramids in Egypt, that idea is quickly changed as we look at timelines, isn't it? Or, if we are confused by the various Herods, we can become less confused. Maps are fine, but in most books, we have an ancient map on one page, and a modern one on another. Rose Publishing has helped us by sometimes combining them.
There is another problem with knowledge that we have garnered from various sources: we vaguely remember such-and-such a fact, but, was it in that course we once took, or was it in a tome we afterwards read, or, was it in a magazine article that came out after that? How can we look up that fact, or, worse, how will we be able to cite it? Having this one-stop volume means that we can cite the information from this work, or, if we need access to the original source, can verify exactly which source it, in fact, was.
The book abounds with all kinds of information that might be needed by almost anyone studying the Bible. There are very helpful sections on church history from the first century onwards, on denominations and on various cults and religions. Different stances on the End Times are explained and charted. There are helpful charts about the kings of Israel and Judah. There is the genealogy of our Lord. There are illustrations of such structures as the Tabernacle and the Temple. And, if you are like me, and have memorized the prophets, the people to whom they spoke, and other such details, only to forget or only partly remember, not so long afterwards, there are fine charts on these, as well.
And on it goes. I truly recommend buying this book for yourself or for some Bible-studying family member or friend. I am quite amazed at the modest price: the book is abundantly and colorfully illustrated, and, in fact, I am planning to show my three-year-old grandchild, a Noahs ark enthusiast, the picture found in this book, since he was sorely disappointed with a recent animation of that story, which lacked animals. And, as if all of the other features are not truly amazing, the fact that pages of this volume can be reproduced, for classroom use only, is a very unusual feature in a book of this dimension, and, especially, of this price.
This is a book, if not for all seasons, at least, then, for all ages. And I believe it will prove to be a delightfully helpful one, indeed. I received an advance copy from Rose Publishing for my candid review.
Micah5 Stars Out Of 5Worth the buy!March 7, 2015MicahQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Rose Book of Bible Charts is a great reference tool to have in your library. It is not simply an unordered and random book of charts; rather it is organized according to subject, such as Bible Overview, How we Got the Bible, or even apologetics, which contains helpful charts to defend our faith. At the back, there is a huge subject index for those who want to quickly find a chart to use for Sunday School or something of similar nature. Overall, this is an excellent book with man excellent charts for collective or personal use. Many studies are worth looking into with Scripture, and this lays them out in a very nice and orderly fashion. For instance, when studying prayer, there is an first-class chart on 100 prayers in the Bible. To study the basics of other religions, it has the charts. To study other smaller topics, such as the fruit of the Spirit and such, it has the charts. One will not regret buying this book if he desires to search the Word more fully in a concise way. Rose has done an excellent job once again in producing a book that will be cherished for years to come, no doubt. Buy this book.
Ann5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful resource all in oneFebruary 6, 2015AnnQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Book of Charts 10 year anniversary edition is a treasure trove of information. This new book has brighter illustrations on many topics. Each book of the Bible has a bookmark sized summary with 5 Ws I use to teach. The Garden of Eden, Noahs Ark and the Exodus journey will delight and capture the interest of young readers. How We Got the Bible have wonderful condensed chunks of information from papyrus to the Dead Sea Scrolls. The foldout timelines and information about the Tabernacle is so complete. This edition is like many different books all rolled in one convenient PDF file. There is a permission to make copies for students. There are many pages I would like to print for my Bible Study on Revelation: Biblical scriptures on heaven and hell, views on the Tribulation, a Glossary of End Time Words. There are a crazy number of pages of Christianity, cults, and religions comparing differences in beliefs on death, prayers, and how they receive salvation, their writings, founders, and sacraments. I received this PDF for my honest review from Rose Publishing.
