    It's a nice big book with lots of great pictures and information. The only real issue I had with this book is that every single entry had the same line in the script and by the end of the book I was rolling my eyes because I just knew it was coming. The writers could have been a bit more creative with it but overall it was a good value.

    Everything that happened in the Bible happened where it did... "For a reason."

    Beautiful pictures as well as colored maps. Easy to read. I am reading it side by side with the corresponding bible chapters and it is really enhancing my understanding.

    "A Visual Guide to Bible Events" is a companion book to "A Visual Guide to Gospel Events" (which focused only on gospel events, and the events it focused on were different than those covered in this book).

    "A Visual Guide to Bible Events" takes different events throughout the Bible (Genesis to Revelation) and examines the significance of where each event happened. The authors pointed out previous Biblical events that happened on the site which brings new depth of meaning to the event or explained the significance of the terrain. They also explained cultural background information and included pictures of what the scene and location would have looked like. The plentiful full-color pictures and maps help the reader visualize the scene and location.

    The book was written with a formal tone, but it's easy to follow. The majority of the authors' insights were solidly based in Scripture. While they did put some speculation in, it remained in the realm of the plausible. They did take the events of Genesis 1-10 as historical, but they also tried to locate Eden on the current world map so they apparently didn't accept that Noah's Flood was terrain-reforming. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting book.

    The summary of each event is just enough to encourage more study. It is easy to read as well as understand. A good resource for any level of student.

    This book has already been a most valuable resource for me as a teacher of BIble history. It is beautifully compiled and presented. The text is easy to read and understand, and appears to incorporate all of the latest discoveries and archeological finds supporting the Biblical text.
