Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Halley's Bible Handbook was born out of the conviction of Henry H. Halley that everyone ought to read the Bible daily. From its first edition, a small give-away booklet of 16 pages, it has grown into an 864-page "almanac" of biblical information, used regularly by hundreds of thousands of laymen, teachers, and ministers. Halley's Bible Handbook contains more biblical information than any other book of its size. It has been a continuous best-seller through the years and has sold more than five million copies in many languages.

About the Author

Dr. Henry H. Halley was a well-respected author, minister, and Bible lecturer, dedicating his life to spreading his passion for Bible study and memorization. The original "Halley's Bible Handbook" grew from small pamphlets about the Bible that he gave away to encourage churches and individuals in Bible study.

I have spent alot of time reading Halley's Bible Handbook. It has helped me get an overview of any book of the Bible I am reading. If you want to know the following about any book of the Bible ie... who wrote it, why was it written, to whom was it written, when it was written, the times and circumstances surrounding the writing and a general summary of the book then Halley's Bible Handbook is the one for you.

The only Bible hand book you'll ever need. I'd recommend this to anyone who seriouly wants to learn Biblical History, or any one who loves study in depth God's Word. This book will help you really learn and study the Holy Bible. Combine this with a Chorndance and a Study Bible and you'll be studying until the cows come home. Once you start reading and useing this Handbook you WILL NOT STOP, it is that Good!

Halley's Bible Handbook is the essential starting point for any Christian desiring to understand Scripture in its cultural context. Halley has done a superb study of maps and archeological findings to complement the deep analysis of theology.
This is essential reading for any Christian apologist and is a perfect introduction to further studies into apologetics.

Halley's Bible Handbook is an excellent book! Offering the answers to questions, this book is a must have for any Bible reader or teacher! I own 8 Bible commentaries, and this is by far my absolute favorite. It is a book that can be read by an 11-year-old, or a 90-year-old. With its comprehensive reviews of each chapter of the Bible, the pictures, maps, and archaelogical information, you gain a greater feel for the timeless and inspirational Bible!! -Brian Davidson

Format: Hardcover
Halley's Bible Handbook is a great starting place to build your Bible Library. This book, though not concise, is fairly comprehensive and gives a good overview of the various areas of scripture.
It is simply a handbook, not an encyclopedia or dictionary. Keep it handy as you study the scriptures for the first time or if you want a clue of the issues behind certain times and happenings. The good point of this work it is not influenced much by Halley's beliefs and tends to be straightforward information that will help you build a broadbased foundation to your studies.

A friend gave me this book for the first time 30 years ago when I was starting my Biblical quest for truth. I found it to be the most helpful, concise and comprehensive guide I have ever used. Definitely fundamentalist, it is not for those who do not accept that the Bible was written under God's instructions. I have given many copies of this book to Christian friends and relatives and will continue to do so.

This was one of the first books I obtained when I became a Christian as a teen-ager many years ago. It was the only real "hand-book" that was available. It is a great place to start.
It has its short-comings like every work, but it also has a wealth of information. The positive aspects of the work far outweigh the negative (unless you have your own ax to grind).

This book offers a lot to someone wanting to know any background of a book of the Bible - and a little more! Great wording and the organization of the information makes it easier to look things up. Loved it!
