The Text has a wealth of information well organized so that facts can be gleaned quickly and easily. Excellent art work adds to the ease and enjoyment of research time. Very good tool for the Sunday School teacher or PH.D. History student who needs a quick inexpensive refresher course to keep facts straight.
This book is an awesome tool to be able to see when things happened in a very concrete way. It is rather cumbersome for an individual just using the time line. However, it is extremely beneficial for use in bible studies or classes. As an individual, it is also simple to be able to read the bible and glance over the time chart for the era it was written and what other things were happening in the world at that time (or around it).
Quickly and easily advance toward your goal of grasping world history (overviews and details) with this book/timeline combo. I have regularly referred to it, especially after current events re-pique my interest in some past era. It unites, in a single unfolding stream, many people/places/things/events/ideas about which I have learned piecemeal. It's a great tool to help forecast the future, based on past simultaneous/successive events. One of my goals is to look at the globe and behold the past instantly, and this timeline has greatly advanced me toward that goal.
