Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyable!February 13, 2018Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Though this book of biblical charts, maps, and reconstructions has been around for a while, it still holds up favorably with its later imitators. In fact, I just looked at a recent volume of this type by another publisher, and I would lean toward this one. Though its been widely used, it is no way out of date. As with any book of this type, the choice of charts may seem arbitrary, and you may not find the exact one you want, but this book will have many that you will appreciate.
The first section of charts labeled general charts is quite the hodgepodge. Still, many of them are fascinating. In addition, theres a lot of information gathered here that would be hard to put together yourself quickly. In this section, be sure to check out the names of God, prayers of the Bible, religions of the world, and stages in the development of the New Testament canon. Theres also an elaborate timeline of biblical and church history.
The section of Old Testament charts was my favorite. Any Bible reader knows that foreign rulers in the Old Testament are hard to keep up with, but they can be traced out here. You will also find listings of messianic prophecies, judges, priests, prophets, Queens, as well as other historical information.
Theres a good number of New Testament charts. Theres a harmony of the Gospels covering several pages. Once again, several rulers are covered as well as other things involving the ministry of Jesus Christ. The chart entitled Jewish sects in the New Testament was especially helpful.
The collection of maps includes both modern information and maps of biblical history. They are vivid and easy-to-read. Its almost like you get a mini-Bible Atlas.
The final section is of well-done reconstructions of things like the Ark, Jerusalem at various times, and items from regular life. I have noticed several of these reconstructions in later Holman products. That is no surprise since their quality is such that they are worth repeating.
This is an excellent resource and would be a nice gift for anyone who loves to study the Bible. Highly recommended!
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
DuaneRGrand Rapids, MIAge: 45-54Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Don't purchase the e bookMay 5, 2013DuaneRGrand Rapids, MIAge: 45-54Gender: maleBought the e book and regret it. You only get small pictures for the charts and maps and cannot enlarge them. Cant read anything so it's totally useless. And since this is an e book I can't get a refund.
PaxtruthOregonAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is a great book for anyone studying the BibleMay 25, 2012PaxtruthOregonAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is packed with information and would be especially good for the beginner. It's hard to picture what building and things would look like from a written description and this book has pictures of a lot of the cities and items described in the Bible. This book is also spiral bound which makes it easy to see every page and some pages open out to one big page and the edges match really well because of the spiral binding. This is a beautiful, well done reference.
