Publisher's Description

Illustrated Bible Survey introduces all the books of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Based on more than thirty years of scholarly research and classroom teaching, editors Ed Hindson, Elmer Towns, and scholars from Liberty University provide a visually engaging, practical, readable, and insightful overview of God’s Word and its eternal message.

Ideally suited for undergraduate students, laymen, and pastors, this volume features:

• More than 200 full-color photographs, maps, charts, and illustrations
• Introductions to each book of the Bible, including background, date, author, outline, and message
• Introductory chapters on the themes of the Bible, how we got our Bible, and the people and places of the Bible
• Sidebars on the unique features, beneficial insights, and practical applications of biblical truths
• Study questions and recommended further reading
ECPA Gold Medallion award winners Hindson and Towns draw from a lifetime of teaching more than 100,000 students. They represent quality evangelical scholarship, along with a passion to make the Scriptures come to life as they open windows of insight into the biblical text. This exciting survey highlights the key elements of the literature, history, archaeology, and wisdom of the biblical text with an eye on the practical application of its timeless truths, moral principles, and theological insights so desperately needed in today’s world.

    The authors really did a very nice job on holding to their claim that the Illustrated Bible Survey - An Introduction book does "...provide a college-level textbook that is accessible to students and laymen alike". I thoroughly enjoyed going through this book and I can guarantee that I will end up using it quite often in my personal studies. The text is clear and easy to read, the paper it is printed on makes reading it very clear. The full color maps, photos, charts and drawings really do an amazing job of engaging you into your studies. The thing that I appreciated the most about this book is how in each section one of the points they always make is to give a pretty detailed overview of Practical Application regarding each book. Very nicely done! Highly recommended resource for your personal Bible studies.

    I received a copy of this book from B&H Academic in exchange for my unbiased review.

    This review was written for Illustrated Bible Survey: An Introduction.
    This volume is one of the best of its kind released in a long time. Though aimed at college-level students, it is ideal for any studious laymen as well. As a pastor, I would love to see those I pastor use this volume in their studies.

    Written by Ed Hindson and Elmer Towns, both of whom are experienced at writing to this audience, the book begins with two helpful introductory chapters on how we got the Bible and how to read it. From there we get a chapter on a general introduction to the Old Testament, followed by individual book introductions. We get a similar New Testament introduction before individual NT books are introduced as well.

    This book scores a home run on every level. The writing is good, the maps and other graphics are outstanding, and many exceptional charts are included too. Each book has a Key Facts graph, a background, an outline, a message of its contents, all followed by a practical application section.

    If my guess is correct, this book will be highly successful. The book itself is beautiful and I highly recommend it.

    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.

    This book has been an excellent text for my college class," Survey of Biblical Literature." This was a required Text that I was having trouble accessing on the website the bookstore sent me. Purchasing this eBook through CBD saved me about $5.00 over the bookstore cost and a lot of hassle. Your cost for the ebook link and CBDreader cost $5.00 less than the link to the site the school uses. I did find one issue using 5 this book on the CBD reader That was sometimes the text ran off the bottom of the screen and left me wondering what was lost, as the beginning of the next page picked up mid-sentence. Sometimes this can be corrected by changing the page layout and/or decreasing the font size.
