I've been a fan of world history timelines since I was a little kid and currently own just about every one that has ever been made. I must admit, this one has got to be one of the most beautiful, most detailed, and most ambitious (17 feet long!) that I have ever seen. However, please be aware that this chart was made in 1871 (!) and all the versions of it (even the ones that update it so that it goes up to the 21st century) are still 98% the same as the original 1871 version. Therefore you are getting a very Victorian/Eurocentric view of history. Historians have uncovered a wealth of information about the past since the 1800's and unfortunately, this is not conveyed on this chart.

So I do NOT recommend this for teaching history. But it's a great novelty piece.

Oh, and I should also point out that the correct author is Sebastian C. Adams, not Edward Hull (Edward Hull only contributed one of the many insets). Adams was a Presbyterian minister/schoolteacher from Salem, Oregon.

I was looking forward to a historical reference that we could put up on the wall and use at home with the kids. I was not aware that this was a Bible-based history of the world. This is not what I was looking for at all and feel that the title is misleading. The product itself is well done and fun to look at but fails to meet my goals.

What a great way for my homeschooled kids to study world history! This timechart is a valuable tool for the visual learner! The high-gloss, and colorful illustrations bring to life the histories of the world from a Biblical worldview in an easy-to-read linear format. The timeline uses Usher's chronology of the world that begins in 4004 BC with Adam and Eve.

At a glance, you can see the history of the Bible compared next to Egypt, Greece, China, Babylon, Rome, Persia, Britain, France, Germany, Turkey, India, Russia, America, and on and on... current to 2011. Not only does it show the rulers of those countries, but also lists interesting facts about those countries and what was going on at a certain time in history.

This book is huge at 17.5" tall and 12" wide. The pages inside are accordion folded and can be unfolded to a length that spans about 15.5 feet! It can not be taken out of the book unless you cut it out, but that can be easily done if you want to hang it on a wall. The back of the timechart is also printed and includes maps and charts about some of the major nations rulers and dynasties for a more detailed look. (See pictures added to description)

This is a great and practical resource for anyone wanting to learn about the world's history!

I have seen original (or old copies of the original) 1800s timechart that this is based on. This is a close reproduction of that fascinating timeline. There are a couple versions and many editions floating around (see also Timechart of Biblical History). The chart is full of details and history that can b poured over for hours. The original panels are the hand drawn and colored. The new panels (20th Century) that have been added, try to match the color scheme, but are not as detail dense. While much of this reflects the knowledge of the time it was first drawn, it also shows that people in those times had a greater respect for history and antiquity. The dates prior to 2000BC are largely only biblical events, based on the old Ussher chronologies. We now know that just adding up the genealogies prior to Abraham just doesn't work. The Hebrews didn't record every generation in antiquity. The Genesis chapters prior to Abraham reach deep into prehistory and do give clues to where they fit in history (see The Genesis Question: Scientific Advances and the Accuracy of Genesis). This book/timechart is a great addition to students of history and the Bible (it's a lot cheaper on the discount shelf at the bookstore).

This book is a must for anyone interested in tracing histories back into the darkened times of our little-known past. Even if it may not be super-reliable... and most certainly not a reference of fact... it is fascinating to view as a compiling of many of humanities legends and facts.

As a degreed Engineer,I have always tried to grasp an understanding of the scope of subject at hand before trying to get in-depth knowledge. However, History is almost always taught in "sound-bites". "Take out your books and turn to page 124. We are studying the Boxer Rebellion today," Or, the Magna Carta, or the Crusades, or the 100-Years War, or, ... However, the student is almost never tuned in to when these events happened in relation to the rest of the events of the world. Everyone knows that the Roman Empire was vast, but who knows how vast or when it was vast or what other civilizations were like at that time?

This chart shows when these things happened, how "big" they were, how "big" (and important) other civilizations were at that time, and gives a sense of how the world has developed. Yes, other history books accomplish this eventually as you trudge through volumes of dry printed words. However, this chart format shows you all this and much, much more AT A GLANCE!!!

If History were taught along with this chart, it would be so much more rich and memorable! To delve into a sector of history (say, Ottoman Empire for instance) would be so very much more interesting and understandable when viewing it in contrast to the rest of the world at that time!
