    The Self-Guided Tour of the Bible

    Having been given a free copy I was asked by Rose Publishing to do a review on their book The Self-Guided Tour of the Bible. This work is a fantastic resource for anyone who is a serious Bible Scholar or just stepping out into the wonderful world of Gods written Word. My favorite features were how it was laid out in nine different exhibit halls of information covering all the books of the Bible and many of the most important characters. There was also an extensive treatment of the history and geography of the Holy Land. I have never read a better laid out book on the Bible so I have nothing to compare it to. It was full of insightful pieces about the life and times of Jesus covering from his birth and his return. This resource would be wonderful for individual Bible study. Overall I thought this book was extraordinary! I enjoyed reading it very much and feel I have learned many things I did not know especially about the land of Jesus during his lifetime. I strongly encourage anyone reading this to think about buying this resource

    The Self Guided Tour of the Bible is one of the best resources I have reviewed for studying the whole Bible. Even someone who is new to the scriptures will find this book easy to use. The author cleverly adapts a gridlike map used in museums to lay out exhibit halls guiding you through the topics. Each book of the bible has the answers to who, what, when and where. Key characters in the bible are highlighted by dates and the book where they can be found. There are many colorful charts-compare prophets or parables of Jesus or miracles of Jesus. Genres of books are discussed and a guide given on how to read different books. Full color photographs, timelines, and relevant maps are wonderful and very useful to the scholar as well as the novice. Twelve pages of a very detailed index make it excellent to pinpoint the facts for which students may be researching. This resource could be used in bible study classrooms of all ages. Thanks to Rose Publishing for the free PDF for an unbiased review

    An Exceptional Overview of the Bible!

    In todays growing biblical illiteracy, this Self-Guided Tour of The Bible is a superb place to begin or begin afresh in grasping a big picture of the Bible. Christopher Hudson simplifies the complex and makes accessible the challenging.

    While painting a panoramic view of the entire Bible, he also provides all-important directions for interpreting the Bible, helpful guidance in basic Bible geography, and a valuable time line of Bible and world events.

    Its not easy to summarize well key Bible characters and all 66 Bible books. Hudson does this with creativity and flair. He further summarizes the life and teachings of Christ the heart of the Bible as well as highlighting Old Testament typology that points to Christ.

    Focus is then given to understanding the future and the main theological themes of the Bible. Explaining all these in common, everyday language is a real gift.

    I like overviews of the Bible and this one is exceptional.

    When we desire to have a closer relationship with God, the best way to do so is through the practice of spiritual disciplines. The practice of spiritual disciplines helps us grow in the knowledge of God, his teachings, and how to live life, pleasing in His sight. It is through studying Gods Word that we receive instructions in righteousness that allows us to be transformed by the renewing of minds. (2 Timothy 3:16; Romans 12:2) There is a multitude of resources and tools available to assist us with the understanding of the Scriptures. Sorting through the numerous resources and tools to obtain the basic knowledge of Bible can be a daunting task and disheartening to some who are new to Bible Study.

    Christopher D. Hudson has written a plain, user-friendly companion resource book entitled, Self-Guided Tour of the Bible. This book is designed to be used with the Bible. As the name implies, it allows one to study at his/her own pace. It is written using real-world scenarios and modern day examples to illustrate different concepts in the Bible. It features maps, timelines, overviews, and charts all full-colored and reproducible for classrooms or small group studies. There are 242 pages. Hudson cleverly uses a museum analogy to feature and highlight the various components of this companion guide. Each chapter acts as an Exhibit Hall. Each Exhibit Hall provides a description of content featured.

    This book serves well as a quick reference guide with multiple maps, charts, overviews, and timelines at your fingertips. It would be great for new theologians beginning the journey of discovery of Gods Word. It is ideal for teaching biblical foundation training and teaching in a small group setting and for individual study. I would definitely recommend this as a resource that should be a part of your arsenal.

    The structure of this book has a very easy to read format so that you can go back and reference the information time after time.

    You are touring the bible through rooms or segments (Exhibit halls) much like touring a museum. Depending on the amount of time you have to study and learn the whole bible you can pick and choose what rooms answer what questions you have concerning your study. I have highlighted and marked pages that I will go back to.

    What I truly love about all Rose Publishing literature is the scripture verses that they put in parentheses, so that you can follow along in the bible. They also have the most vivid full color illustrations, especially their maps. This publication is also time lines such as the History of the Bible, and charts.

    Rose Publishing is one of very few publishers that everything may be reproduced; this is stated on the front cover and at the bottom of every page. This is also very helpful if you are a bible study leader or a pastor needing an illustrated map while preaching.

    What also is a favorite of mine about this book is it guides you and explains with frequently asked questions and answers. It gives you the history with dates for all the books of the bible.

    Please purchase this for yourself and you will not be disappointed.

    I was provided with an advanced copy by the publisher to give an honest and unbiased review.
