Product Description

The size, complexity, and sheer scope of the Bible's story is intimidating to many. People come looking for truth, and all too often they become frustrated and unable to penetrate the redemptive story of God's love for humanity.

The Holman Illustrated Bible Handbook is specifically designed with overcoming these obstacles. It begins with an essay on "How to Read and Study the Bible" that orients readers to what they will encounter in the Bible's pages, and this is followed by a helpful introduction/outline to each of the Bible's 66 books. The purpose of these introductions is to help the reader see a unified theme throughout the Bible and to guide their reading. Studies indicate that reading comprehension is a key factor in understanding, and in addition to its introductory materials The Handbook provides these materials for each biblical book:
  • Identifies Key Texts
  • Key Terms
  • One sentence summaries of each book
  • Author and Date of each book
  • First audience
  • Occasion
  • Genre
  • Summary of each book's message
  • How the book fits into God's redemptive story
  • How each book affects the Christian understanding of God, Humanity, salvation, and more!
  • Principles to live by

Publisher's Description

Many who would be willing to search for truth in the Bible are intimidated by its size, the length of time it spans, the different languages and cultures within, or questions about the historical reliability and contemporary relevance of Scripture.

The Holman Illustrated Bible Handbook is designed with an awareness of the obstacles people have to understanding the Bible. It begins with an essay on "How to Read and Study the Bible" before proceeding to chapters that provide a thorough overview of each of the Bible’s 66 books, summarizing each one’s content, author, evidences of authenticity, and historical context.

In addition to the full-color maps, photographs, reconstructions, and charts that equip readers throughout the volume, a smartphone-accessible QR code is included for each chapter that leads to related online teaching from noted Bible scholar Gene Getz.

    This book does contain useful information. I was disappointed in the physical size of the book. The smaller print is somewhat difficult to read.

    So excited to see salvation history unfold as references in the Old Testament point to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Easy read and easy to find scripture references.

    The purpose of the Holman Illustrated Bible Handbook (HIBH) is to "to provide a richer store of background knowledge that will yield greater understanding and joy." So what should a prospective buyer know about this book? First, it is a handbook (a small format book that can be easily carried in the hand). Second, it is about the Bible. It provides almost 500 pages of background info on the Bible and each of its books. It will provide some general info (how to read and study the Bible, measurements and weights, etc.). It will also provide useful information on each book (key text, key term, one sentence summary f the book, author and date of writing, first audience and designation, occasion, purpose, first pass [a simple overview of the book's structure], reliability of the book, how the book fits into the larger biblical story, Christ in each particular book, Christian worldview elements, genre and literary style, a principle derived from the book by which to life, and a QR code and URL that will take you to more information). Given its 500 pages it will provide far more than your study Bible. Third, this is an illustrated handbook. The verbal information is complemented by colorful maps, pictures, diagrams, charts, and drawings that are relevant to that particular book of the Bible. Overall impression: A wealth of information has been crammed into a smallish handheld book--a wealth of information that should bless any student of the Bible. In addition, this information is presented in thoughtful and visually attractive manner. The quality of the hardback binding and the paper is excellent. This book is a bargain at the suggested retail of $17.99. When on sale, it is a steal. Bottomline: This book provides a wealth of information that should help readers understand the Bible. It organizes this material in a succinct, and attractive way. It is a useful book for preparing to study any book of the Bible and it is enjoyable to thumb through in order to look at the illustrations and read the text. Recommendation: Highly recommended. If you can get it on sale, buy several for your Bible study group. It will allow you to practice charity and it will bless them.
