OldWhatsHisName5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Bible Handbook with Helpful IllustrationsJune 7, 2017OldWhatsHisNameQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The 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.
