Editorial Reviews

History and Geography of the Bible Story is one of the best resources of its kind for individual and class study. It is important for each student of the Bible to gain information about the history and geography of the Bible in order to better understand the context of the message of salvation. The Waldrons have demonstrated an ability to take difficult material and make it both understandable and usable. The book can do several things for the user: (1) it will provide a complete survey of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation; (2) it will give one a good summary of the history of the nations involved in sacred history; (3) it will acquaint one with the geography of the Bible lands. The good maps add tremendously to the quality and usefulness of the book. There are a total of 52 lessons. The first lessons discuss man as an intelligent being. The next 7 lessons give a brief look at all the Bible Lands. The rest of the lessons (9-52) correlate the Bible history and geography together. There are plenty of full color maps with corresponding blank maps for the student to fill in. Every few lessons, there is a section of review questions. Charts, lists, and easily read narrative make this a great study for your Bible class or personal study.

Christians believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative word of God, the Lord's revelation of His message for all mankind. However, unlike other so-called "sacred books" of various world religions, the Bible is not just a vague philosophical treatise generically filled with pious platitudes. It was written and set in a definite historical and geographical background, and the more we know about the history and geography of the Bible, the better we can understand it. This practical, workbook-based Bible study is a good resource to consider for that purpose. I have counted authors Bob and Sandra Waldron among my friends. Sandra just recently passed away. Before this book was published, I had heard Bob deliver a series of lectures about Bible history and geography on a number of occasions.
The book has 52 lessons in which students will be engaged in learning about the geographical features and the roles they played in the histories of the various nations involved with the Holy Land. The workbook is divided into two main parts. Part one consists of the first lesson as an introduction to discuss man as an intelligent being and the next seven lessons which give a brief look at all the Bible Lands. The rest of the lessons (lessons 9-52) correlate the Bible history and geography together, beginning with "The Book of Beginnings" in Genesis and continuing down to "The Close of the First Century" in the book of Revelation, with a concluding chapter of "Review of the Geography Study." Every few lessons, there is a section of review questions with a total of eleven periodic review lessons. There are plenty of full color maps with corresponding blank maps for the student to fill in.

Format: Paperback
This is without a doubt the best written description of the lands, time and life of the Holy Bible's characters. While it is a description of the lands of the Bible, the people of the Bible are brought in and you learn both at the same time. If you study the Bible already, those people will be welcome, familiar figures. The chart of the Kings of Judah and Israel is outstanding. The four hundred years before the birth of Christ are studied. Though God was silent at that time, in our Bibles, civilization was not and those 400 years can be brought together very well. We are studying this book in our Ladies' Bible Class and are nearing the end. It is my deep wish that we will start over and go back through the entire study again. Magnificent.

I have used this book to study, learn and teach since its first edition in the 1980's (a 6 month study then) through it's most recent edition (now a 52 lesson series). There is nothing to compare with this complete Bible story and intertestamental study guide. It is practical, thorough and reverent of God's Word, The Holy Bible. The reader will gain a thorough understanding of the Bible story against the only "pictures" we have of that story - the geographical maps. There is a minor introduction of how to use the maps in the study but even then you don't have to know much to understand the information in the maps. It is both a study book and a workbook at the same time.

Bob and Sandra Waldren are careful when adding information around the story but have succeeded in telling that story as God revealed it and supplementing only good historical background information as well as pertinent customs and cultural tidbits to provide some context. None of that ever seems to get in the way though.

To me, one of the highlights of this study guide is the 3-lesson section called The Chart of the Kings. It covers the entire period of the Divided Kingdom (generally one of the least understood sections of the Bible although it is about 1/3 of the story) in chart form including the placement of the appropriate prophets of the period and some secular history references, particularly as other nations interacted with Israel/Judah.

All in all, one of the best study books for covering the entire Bible story. Highly recommended for anyone.
