Publisher's Description

An exciting tour of the great events of the Bible in their geographical and historical setting
 
This book enables young readers to access the Bible by linking its main stories and people to its fascinating and diverse historical and geographical setting. Key to this book are 14 astonishingly detailed reconstructive vistas from the ancient world, picking out salient points in biblical history including the great flood, the people of Israel in Egypt, Jerusalem, Capernaum, and more. These vistas punctuate chapters which further uncover the people, places, and events of the Bible, illustrated with carefully referenced narrative pictures and informative maps which continue to unfold the great sweep of biblical events. The result is engaging and accessible to young readers, both browsers and aspiring scholars.

    Formatted similar to encyclopedias, this book seeks to teach and show readers the Bible in historical and cultural context. Readers will be drawn in by the full-page, full-color illustrations and the abundance of diagrams, maps and photographs. Presented in chronological fashion, this book covers select topics from Creation through to Christianity in the Roman Empire.

    This is a high quality book with great potential, but the content falls far short of my expectations and standards for Christian books. While my kids (ages 7 and 8) enjoy the illustrations and diagrams, the tone promotes skepticism and doubt. Rather than presenting the Bible as the inerrant Word of God, this book portrays it as a mere collection of stories -- fictitious tales, myths and traditions. That's fine, if you don't believe the Bible to be true, but unacceptable to me and for my family.

    In addition to the condescending tone, I take issue with some of the content. Even possessing a Bachelor of Science in Bible, I have never seen some of the things presented in this book. This is not to say that they're wrong, only that elements of the content are not commonly accepted by mainstream Christianity.
